High Hopes - Ashley And Jan's Pillow Fun


I would just like to thank my friend Debbie for giving me the idea to make this Sleepover invitation card. Here is the tutorial I followed to make the Criss Cross Design. I have left the back of the card blank for now but this is where you would put the information for the sleepover event. I have used High Hopes Stamp Ashley and Jan's Pillow fun which you can find over at Silly Monkey Crafts. They have a great collection of my favourite stamps there.

This is the first time I have used Stickles and must admit I panicked when I applied it as it looked a gluey mess and I had to get my koi brush to even it out. By this stage I was getting annoyed with myself as thought I had ruined their wings but it did dry really nice and smooth - phew! I am still learning so much everyday.




Card details:
Stamp: High Hopes - Ashley And Jan's Pillow Fun
Medium: Prismacolour, Sansodor & Paper stumps & Stickles
Paper: Bazzill and lots of Cherry Arte Paper from the Kittylou Range.
Embellishments: Bloom and ribbon - Rebecca's Scrapbooking Stash, Brad & Heart Eyelet

I finished the back of the envelope off with my handmade stamp which covered over the join of the ribbon neatly.
