Balloons & Raccoons!

A little stamping, and a little free-hand.

OK – I was CASEing cards again this week and just had to make this one (see below). As soon as I made it, I wanted to share it with you all. Before filming a tutorial for you, I realized that Stampin’ Up! does not currently have any alphabet dies offered. Hmmm. My 2 alphabet die sets are both retired, so I needed to come up with an option for any cardmaking fans don’t have any alphabet dies either. So I used stamps from Biggest Wishes to create the Happy Birthday, rather than alphabet dies and the small heat-embossed element.

I think each one is cute in it’s own way. If you’d like to CASE my card with the cut out letters, I used the Alphabet A La Mode die set. I stamped on a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of white card stock then adhered it to a white card base, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (scored and folded at 4 1/4″). To see a tutorial of the other version, you can watch below. Thanks for stopping by!
