strike up some fun

Hello! Today I’m sharing two cards using products from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps May release. Do you know someone who likes to go bowling? Or maybe your kids get invited to bowling birthday parties? Maybe you are just looking to make a fun card? Most of us have bowled at least once in our life and this card would bring back fun memories.

Product links: Masculine Mash-UpShiplap Background, Boss Lady Alpha Dies, Bold Birthdays, Birthday Wordfetti.

I stamped the bowling image on the background of the front of the card, then added a square layer with a popped-up balloon. But…my favorite part is the inside.

I used the Shiplap Background to make the bowling lane and the alpha dies for my sentiment.

I stamped and fussy cut the ball and pins, then added them to a simple pop-up feature. To make the pop-up, I used a 1″ x 4 1/4″ strip and scored it at every inch (1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″). Then simply fold and glue the 1/4″ tab to make a square. Glue one side to the inside bottom, then add adhesive and “close” the top of the card to adhere the pop up to the card front.

I had some diecut letters left over and another fun sentiment in mind, so I made another card. This one is a CAS Mini Slim card so that I could fit all the letters across the bottom. This one is 3 1/2″ x 6 1/4″. The ball and two pins were stamped again and popped-up. I stamped the “you’re” word from the Be Unique set.

Have a great day!
