Pacific Point Paisley

Pacific Point Paisley

I really wanted to stamp the big Paisley background with Pacific Point ink for this card (and I really liked how it looked), but I didn’t quite know what to do with the rest of the card. I decided to try the SCS color combination challenge (by adding Basic Gray and Certainly Celery) and use Beate’s weekend sketch (#66). The ribbon flower was an idea I picked up at Stampin’ Up!’s regional seminar last week.

I stamped the snowflake from the Scandinavian Season set on the non-textured side of the Basic Gray card stock and then punched out 1/8″ holes along the image for my ribbon flower. I threaded a 14″ long Whisper White taffeta ribbon through the holes, and placed a Build-A-Brad in the center of the flower. The flower images on the Build-A-Brads were stamped with the Paisley background and punched out with a 1/2″ circle punch.

The Chit Chat rub-on was cut in four pieces so that the sentiment would fit in the small space next to the Basic Gray panel. I love the variety of sayings in this package of rub-ons!

Thanks for stopping by!
