Hello Pendant Park!

This card features the stamp set Pendant Park from the 2010-2011 Stampin' Up Idea Book & Catalog.  I've had this set for a while but hadn't gotten around to using it until today.  I distressed the Soft Suede layer using my bone folder.  I stamped the border on the strip of Pear Pizzaz that I had cut off of the front of the card and then attached it... that sure took off the pressure to make it perfectly straight as I could trim it on the paper trimmer if I goofed.  After I stamped and punched the "Hello" sentiment, I scored and folded the edge of the oval under the Confetti White layer before attaching it.  I also sponged some Pear Pizzaz along the bottom to give the impression of grass.

Stamps:  Pendant Park
Ink:  Pear Pizzaz, Soft Suede
Cardstock:  Confetti White, Pear Pizzaz, Soft Suede, Peach Parfait
Accessories:  1 3/8" x 5/8" Oval Punch, Stampin' Sponge, Bone Folder
