Birthday Bubbles

Hello Sassy Friends!
I'm in the mood to celebrate with a dear friend of mine turning 
'another year wiser'. With our beautiful March mood board in mind, 
I've created a little bottle neck hanger 
card using Glitz Design and American Crafts
Completely inspired by the fabulous Amy Tangerine pockets 
in the store, I've created my own out of a sheet of Maggie Holmes  
Flea Market vellum. Simply cut a strip to a width of your choosing, 
fold up in half and sew shut on three sides, leaving the top open.



This 'friend' peekaboo had the perfect sentiment, but was just 
a bit too long for my needs, so I scanned it and printed it off onto vellum. (Alternatively, you could also purchase the digital file of this and print off)
Can't help but love these blooms. Once I had adhered it to the front of the pocket, it looked a bit flat, so I have given it a bit of depth with some Color Shine...
Simply brush on parts, starting off with a watered down version, 
then building up the colour.
The pocket holds a removable card, which I have stamped 
(Kaisercraft) and heat embossed using American Crafts Zing
embossing powder in metallic silver.
It's a simple way to dress up some cheeky champers and was very well received! 
If you decide to give this a go, be sure to tag us #sassyscrappers 
so we can admire your handy work!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
 
Chantalle

  1. Absolutely cute and very nice idea ! I really bring myself to get out and dust off my sewing machine. This pocket is very nice. Blooms with the color shine are beautiful. It's sweet. Thank you Chantalle !
