Laughing Lola!

Laughing Lola is a new paper packet from Close To My Heart.

It's design and color scheme is great for teens and tweens as well as friends.  The bright colors pop as the paisley pattern delights!  This is a simple card using a small bit of the patterned paper.  You can easily make a card set for that special girl in your life in just a short time!  I took a piece of gypsy card stock and cut it to fit the base of the card, 4 1/2 x 5 1/4.  I attached a 2 3/4" piece of the patterned paper to the center of the card.  Then I used gypsy, cotton candy and lagoon as the ink colors to stamp the heart "quilt square" from the new Stitch Wonder stamp set (Item# C1564, $13.95).  I used the border stamp included in the same stamp set and inked the top and bottom in black.  Inside I added another small strip (1"x5 1/4") of patterned paper to the top of the base card.
 I stamped the "Love you to Pieces" sentiment on white daisy card stock then cut it out and added it to a double mat of black and the brighter purple pattern paper.  The double matting really makes the sentiment stand out to the reader.  Then I used the border stamps on the bottom and to either side of the sentiment from the same "Stitch Wonder" stamp set in cotton candy ink.  It came out super cute!  Always add a strip of coordinating paper to your envelope for added quality!  You can't see it in the picture, but while I was stamping the front of the card with the black ink border, I also stamped the front, bottom of my envelope to charm the receiver!   Again, this is a super cute, easy project that anyone could do.  Please click the "Shop With Me" link on the right to order your own Laughing Lola!!
