I am so excited about this Sesame Street Card. I found many like this on the splitcoaststampers.com gallery and I just had to make one for my Niece's 2nd birthday! After I made this card I remembered I have 2 more nieces turning 2 this year so I made a couple more to have on hand for them as well. Now I just feel so ahead of myself. I hope you love this little card as much as I do!
Paper: YoYo Yellow, Basic Black, Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Old Olive, Only Orange, Cameo Coral

All about the stamps:
I needed to make a get well card for my monthly card swap. The only Get Well sentiment stamp I have is from the retired Stampin Up set Bold and Basic Greetings. Since I was going old school with the sentiment I thought I'd keep with the theme and used the retired Stampin Up Sketch an Event set. Interestingly these are the stamp sets that I ordered after going to my first Stampin Up demonstration. These sets inspired me to want to make cards.
Here are the materials I used:
Paper: Barely Banana, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Positively Pink, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Cream Grosgrain ribbon, Large Tag Punch, Small Tag Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Clear Stickles
