Relax, it's your Birthday

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Maryann Einam our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Today is Hammock Day according to the Days of the Year calendar, what a wonderful way to relax. So for our challenge this week Maryann has asked us to create a card with the theme of relaxation in mind.

Of course having a hammock theme stamp I had to use that to create my card for this challenges. It's a fairly large stamp so it took me a while to decide how to use it until I finally decided to use it on a pop-up card. I used the Lots of Pops Pop-Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Unfortunately this die has now been discontinued.

Here is a side view of my card so you can see the pop up panel a little better.

When I was putting my hammock stamp back in it's drawer, I discovered this cutie so of course it was the perfect time to use it for the front of my card. I added the word "Summer" from A Way with Words - 4 Seasons die set and the word "Fun" from the A Way with Words - Fun/Play die set.
