Bookcase Builder for Global Design Project

There's a fun challenge going on this week at Global Design Project. It's a theme project and the theme is Kids! Since I have six grandchildren, it caught my interest right away and it is also the kind of challenge that I can use for my Birthday Buffet class later this month. Here's the banner:

And LeAnne over at The Paper Players has a monochromatic colour challenge happening at this week! Check it out:

So I pulled out my new Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder and the Bookcase Builder stamp set and got to work. Here's how it turned out, a great birthday card for a little girl:

  • The Bookcase Builder stamp set is so versatile! You can make a child's card, a baby card or a sophisticated adult card all with the same set! This design works for a toddler best but depending on the colours you use, many of the other images, combined with the teddy bear and piggy bank would work for kids of all ages.
  • The new Ruffled Embossing Folder is AMAZING! but you don't want to be covering up too much of it. Even with the two smaller panels I've used here, you don't get the full effect. On another card I'm going to make it the main event except for a sentiment and a ribbon so you can see the waves and levels it makes. It really looks like layered ruffles!
  • The sentiment is from Birthday Banners stamped in Berry Burst and Sweet Sugarplum and die cut using the Bunches of Banners Framelits. After I die cut the sentiment, I trimmed it further right to the stamped line, using my Paper Snips. Then I die cut another banner shape from Rich Razzleberry cardstock and glued the sentiment on it giving a very narrow border of Rich Razzleberry all around the sentiment for a more finished look.
  • The ribbon is the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon in Berry Burst. I just love this ribbon and it makes beautiful bows. I used a few glue dots to position all the parts of the bow just the way I wanted them and then added the sentiment to fit within the bow as you see it here, using Stampin' Dimensionals.
