Alternative Card

This cute alternative card design will have you ready for

18 months of birthdays!

Start with a Pool Party base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

Then add a layer of Whisper White that is 1/8″ larger on all sides

than the calendar piece.

Using the Pool Party Stampin’ Spot and one of the stamps in the set,

create a design in the blank spot between the header and “January”.

Then stamp the circle around your January date.

Add the layered calendar piece to the card using Dimensionals.

And finish with a bow made with the blue weave ribbon in the kit.

To go with the card, here’s a super simple gift!

Using the repeated pattern image, stamp with Grapefruit Grove

onto five of the die cut stickers.

Wrap five Hershey Nuggets.

Then cut Pool Party cardstock to 2-1/2″ x 5″

and score in portrait at 1/2″ on both sides.

Slide the tray into a cellophane bag.

After adding the nuggets, tie shut with the blue weave ribbon.

To dress up the tag, mask the center with a sticky note.

Then using an Aqua Painter and Grapefruit Grove ink,

watercolor the bottom and top to mimic the calendar pieces in the kit.

Tip: Pounce the Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Spot on your acrylic block

to create a palette that you can pick up ink from for your water coloring.
