2103 Artisan Design Team Finalists Blog Hop- Day 7

Good evening!  
Welcome to Day 7 of the Artisan Design Team Finalists Blog Hop.  Just 3 more days and our hop will come to an end.  Have you been enjoying all the beautiful projects?  I have and am already looking forward to day 8!

Today's project that I have to share with you is a "Miss You" card.  I'm not sure about you but I just love office supplies and the Epic Day DSP was the perfect choice for those!  The card base is Crumb Cake and it has several layers of DSP from the Epic Day DSP.  For the bottom layer I chose to use a piece of DSP that resembled lined paper.  For the second layer- I used the Inventory DSP sheet.  I love how it looks like a ledger!  I then hand stitched the outer edges of the Inventory layer using Calypso Coral Bakers Twine.  I punched out a Decorative Label from the green and blue polka dot Epic Day paper and added it behind the Inventory layer using some Stampin' Dimensionals.  Two of the adorable flag banners were created using the Epic Day Washi Tape.  The third banner, a pennant was created using the Petite Pennant Builder Punch. I stamped the Miss you sentiment from the Lacey and Lovely stamp set and cut it out with the Oval Framelits.  If you look real close towards the left side- you'll see that I also stamped the words Pencil Me In in Black Staz-On ink.  I thought it was an appropriate sentiment to go along with Miss you!  The addition of Vintage Faceted Designer Button and Pearl Basic Jewels completed my card!
