a sunny hello... beat the heat with penny black

Hello friends!!  Here with a fun little card that I made using the super cute Penny Black set "Summer Fun".   If you haven't been the to Penny Black blog you really need to because there is a fun new challenge/contest going on.  All the fun started on July 22nd and will run through August 5th.  What's in it for you???  Well... three prize packages worth $25.00 each!!  All the information can be found here so make sure you check it out!

 
For my card I decided to use the cute little palm tree/hammock image from the "Summer Fun" (30-107) set, along with the sentiment "a sunny hello".  I first started by die cutting a tag using the small tag from the Penny Black Tagged die set (51-007).  I then stamped the image on the tag using Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image, except for the sand portion, with Copic markers.  I applied some clear drying glue to the sand portion and then sprinkled on some sand colored Flower Soft and let it dry.   I cut a piece of white cardstock and then embossed it using a piece of burlap... a quick and easy way to create subtle texture on a project.  A strip of burlap ribbon was cut to use as a mat for a piece of patterned paper from the PB Madison 6x6 paper pad and both pieces were adhered to the cardstock piece.  The tag was attached using foam dimensionals and a bow made from twine added to the tag.  The entire piece was adhered to a kraft card base and I was done. 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and kraft; PP:  Madison Patterned Paper; Stamps:  Penny Black Summer Fun (30-107); Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Dies:  Penny Black Tagged (51-007); burlap ribbon; twine; Copic markers; Sand Flower Soft
