One of my dearest friends has a birthday tomorrow and this stamp set really seems to fit! I’ve been wanting to do cards with the new Vintage Vogue (Occasions mini) and the Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper. They seem like a natural fit! I really like the So Saffron with the Not Quite Navy, too. I used white taffeta ribbon to make the centers (a few pictures follow with the how-to) and the new Scallop Trim border punch to embellish the horizontal strip. This punch is available free (my favorite price) through the Sale-a-bration promotion from Stampin’ Up! Contact your demonstrator or me for details. The sketch is courtesy of the Splitcoaststampers weekly sketch challenge (SC264). Thanks for taking a look!
Stamps: Vintage Vogue (Occasions Mini)
Paper: Bella Bleu DSP, So Saffron, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Ink: So Saffron, Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Scallop Trim border punch (SAB), White taffeta ribbon, dimensionals, mini glue dots
To make the center, cut a piece of ribbon approximately 3 1/2 inches long. Attach the two flowers together and punch a circle, using the 1/16 inch circle punch, in the center of the flower.
Then feed the ribbon through the hole and loop it through itself (like the beginning of a knot). Pull to tighten but leave it a bit loose.
Finally, feed the end back through the hole and trim off the ends as needed.
Thanks again for stopping by!
