You're Never Too Old

Here's a fun birthday card for the current CASology cue word, party.  Between the colorful party hat and the sentiment, I think I have the cue word pretty well covered.

You're Never Too Old to Wear a Party Hat-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lil' Inker Designs
I used a die cut party hat as my focal image.  Cutting the pieces of the hat from different colors of cardstock, then layering them adds a lot of interest to the hat.  It's placed on the white card base with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment from the You're Invited stamp set from Lil' Inker Designs next to the hat in red ink.

To go with the hat's polka dotted pattern, I embossed a turquoise panel with dots.  After edging the embossed panel with a narrow strip of red cardstock, I adhered it to the left edge of the cardfront.
Materials Used:
You're Invited stamp set, Party Hats dies (Lil' Inker Designs); Memento Lady Bug ink (Tsukineko); Real Red cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Turquoise Sea cardstock (Gina K Designs); white cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Spotted embossing folder (Lifestyle Crafts); foam tape
