This Calls for a Celebration is a perfect card for our daughter this week. She is in medical school graduating in May and she found out she matched for her residency placement. That is a big deal in the medical world and Friday we find out where she will be placed for her OB/Gyn residency! To say we are proud and excited is an understatement. This girl didn’t give up and there were so many bumps in the road, set backs, tears, long late nights and disappointments to many to name but she didn’t give up and now she made it! Can’t wait to celebrate with her and of course we needed a card! Not just any card it needed to be fun. I love how this fun card turned out. The Abstract Beauty Suite of products is so much fun to create with! I love the bright colors in the papers and they are so elegant not much else is needed. Great for fun and fast cards! The DSP paper is just stunning to say the least!
Close up of the card front. I love the details in the die cuts! This is such a fun bundle! A bundle is a die cut and coordinating stamp set! Both can be purchased together but are also bundled for a discounted price. There is also a Suite or products in this line and a Suite is all the products designed to go with this bundle, paper, stamp set, die cuts and embellishments and a Suite gets you all the products at a great price too! You can’t loose no matter how you purchase the Abstract Beauty products. They are beautfil!
Don’t forget the envelope flap too! I love to decorate the envelopes too! Details are so fun to add to any creation not needed but fun!

I die cut these die cuts with our mini cut emboss machine-remember this one is 20% off in March! Savings of the Green is always a fun thing!

There are also fun select bundles (die cuts and stamp sets) that are 20% off this moth too! I love me to save some green! I am sure you do too!

Layer the Abstract Beauty DSP to the cut gold foil sheet and then using dimensionals pop up off the card front.

Stick come adhesive on the center of the card on the DSP and then weave the Pool Party organdy ribbon back and fourth using the adhesive to anchor it down to the card front.
