Smiley Cards Thank You


Here is another card created with the Smiley Cards Gypsy download. I needed to make a bunch of cards to thank families that have been buying books for my classroom during our book fair this week. I thought the kids would enjoy this, especially since I used Giants' colors (there is still a lot of excitement around here over our World Series win)!

Recipe:
(all materials Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise specified)

This card is made to fit into a small thank-you note size envelope. The base is cut at 4 7/8" x 7" in Stamper's Select White Cardstock, scored at 3 1/2". The mat is cut at 4 5/8" x 3 1/4" in Blueberry Sky and run through the Bricks Cuttlebug folder.

I cut the emoticon at 2.5" in True Black. The layer is cut in Halloween Prints Patterned Paper, and then I trimmed off the arms. The cheeks and tongue are in Melon Berry Cardstock, and the eyes are in Provocraft White Cardstock.

To turn this emoticon into a baseball player, I added a baseball cap from Everyday Paper Dolls, cut at 4.18", and used a white gelly roll pen for details. The book is from Locker Talk, cut at 1.75" in Terracotta Tile Cardstock.

The final detail was some stitching around the edges with my black Zig Writer.
