Avery Elle June/July Release Highlight: Papel Picado

Hola peeps!  Hola seems appropriate because today I'm back with the stamp set Papel Picado from the June/July Avery Elle release:)  For those of you who aren't familiar with the term Papel Picado, they're beautifully intricate and colorful tissue paper banner flags. Here's a look of the entire set including fantastic matching sentiments (how perfect is that font?).  


For my card, I grabbed some of the brightest, cheeriest colored inks I could find and went to stamping a banner.  After I stamped the banner, I masked each flag and created the background. Nothing but blue skies here!  In my mind, I was picturing a scene with the papel picado banner swinging in the wind during a backyard celebration:)  To fill in the background behind the banner, I used my Fantastix in the cutouts of each banner.  This card just makes me smile:)


Thank you so, so much for stopping by!  I hope you're having a wonderful week!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
