Hambo's New Challenge is Cool Beans!
Today I made a Ribbon Pull Card. I used the Hambo Stamps digi image called Kangaroo, colored it with my Copics and framed the image on cardstock.
I used my ScorPal to fold the card into a box and embellished the front with a border diecut and some small white roses. I used CTMH Liquid Glass to put a little shine on the balloon.
I left my card base long enough to actually have a front that opens to an inner page. That's where I placed one of the four sentiments that come with this digi purchase.
I punched holes in the front and back of the box. I placed my ribbon around a package of gum, down the front and up the back, and then stuck the package into my box with the ribbon ends sticking out the top.
I was sorting through my birthday cards, trying to find a special one for my daughter, who turns 17 on the fourth of July. She is my baby, my gift from God. I lost my dad in 94 to lung cancer. I hadn't taken birth control since my son was born nine years previously. So, I lost him, and I got pregnant -- unexpectantly, joyously pregnant. She was born in the Zodiac sign of Cancer. That's why I know God gave her to me to replace my dad.
Back to my card. My daughter loves this gum, so this card is the one for her. We're celebrating her day the usual way, with fireworks and parades and a BBQ!! That's what happens when you're born on your country's day of independence.
Go play at the Hambo Hoedown this week. The challenge is to use a Hambo digi and a card with a pocket in it. Happy holiday, crafters!
