Much Appreciated

I am starting to participate in more sketches and challenges. This card combines two: (1) Clean & Simple Stamping and (2) Loonie Stamper's Challenge. Check out those blogs for interesting challenge and inspiration! They are much appreciated!

Circle nestabilities were used to create the card. The bottom half of the card is a stamped pattern. This was a unique color combination, but I actually liked it! This is why I do these challenges...to think outside of the box (i.e., my head). This weekend, I completed a lot of projects. I worked on a few more holiday cards, which I hope to preview next week.

  1. Make card base by taking trimming cardstock to 4.25" x 11" then score at 5.5"
  2. At the top of the score line, place circle die and cut out circle.
  3. On white cardstock, stamp flowers and dots.
  4. Adhere to card base, then trim around the edges to fit circle.
  5. Trim blue cardstock, then adhere to card base and trim around edges.
  6. Tie ribbon around card base
  7. Stamp sentiment.
  8. Cut out on of the leftover flower images, add a red brad, and adhere it to the card base using a dimensional.
