Sending Smiles Accross the Ocean

Hello my Stamper Friends,

I am still reporting from accross the Atlantic Ocean, from my home country Austria.
I am really enjoying my role as Oma to our adorable grandson. Life has been busy over the past two weeks, and it will not let up as we are off to a week of Fasnacht craziness with our friends in Ottenheim, Germany.
Before I leave I want to share a special card I made for my husband Gord, it was his birthday, and I was not with him this year. I decided last minute not to mail the card, but instead hiding it for him along with his present. It was fun to send him on the scavenger hunt through the house, and it sounds like he liked his card.

As you know by now, my goal is always to make cards that are quick, easy and duplicatable. My inspirations come from projects posted on Pinterest and from the many talented paper crafters all over the world.
  
          
Product List:
Stamp: Lift Me Up (16 rubber stamps, page 10 2017 Occasions Catalogue)
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Very Vanilla and So Saffron cardstock, Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink: Bermuda Bay, So Saffron - ink refill
Tools: Aqua Painters (page 180 Annual Catalogue)

I used Calypso Coral cardstock for my first design, then - staying within the colour scheme of the DSP pack - I switched to Bermuda Bay for Gord's card.  

    
Instructions:
1) Fold 81/2"x 5 1/2" piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock at the 4 1/4" scoreline
2) Adhere 51/4"x 4" piece of DSP to card front, inside mats are 5"x 3 3/4" (So Soffron) and 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" (Very Vanilla)
3) Apply a light watercolour wash to 4 3/4"x 3 1/2" Very Vanilla piece of cardstock, let dry for a few minutes before attaching to the card front
4) Cut and adhere your two banners, layer the doily on top of it, Very Vanilla side up!
5) Stamp sentiment on Very Vanilla/gold label, then attach label to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals
6) Attach mini tassel and paper bow using Glue Dots and you are DONE! Congratulations!

This was the spot where I was going to post the video link, but I was unable to upload it. I will keep trying though, sorry!
