Jared's Announcement

When I saw today's Limited Supplies challenge, I knew it was a sign. I have been promising my sister a sample for my nephew's birth announcements, and when I saw the challenge I knew it was time to finally sit down and make it. I started by cutting my Buckaroo Blue card stock in half long ways. I then scored it at 3in and 8in. I used my new scallop punch from SU to make the scallops on the top flap. Then I punched the holes in the scallops with my 1/16ths handheld punch. The layers are Certainly Celery and Whisper White which I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. Isn't that giraffe the cutest!! It is from Melanie Muenchinger's Just So Hippy set. It was the first set that I bought of hers, and it is still one of my favorites(which I haven't used in forever)!! I colored her in with my SU markers, and then layered it with CC and BB. I added two silver brads to the top of that panel, and I added the two at the three at the bottom BEFORE I glued it down to the flap. The sentiment if from Just So Hoppy, another one of Melanie's sets, and I just love that they go together-ya know what I mean?!! The main image is secured at the bottom of the image so that the top panel tucks behind it to hold it closed. I believe(if I remember correctly) that I used Toy's sketch for today too, so yayyy me!! That is it for me now! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
