When Stampin’ Up! came out with the Big Shot this past summer, I finally got my first die-cutting machine. Now I know what I’ve been missing all these years! I pre-ordered the Sweetest Stem embosslit, which will be in the Spring-Summer 2009 catalog, but I hadn’t used it yet. When I was putting this card together, it just was the right embellishment to fill in the space on the Top Note.
The colors I used are from Kristina Werner’s 36th Color Inspiration challenge. I started by stamping the Baroque background with Old Olive ink on the Old Olive card. I ran the Top Note die through the Big Shot twice, once with Rose Red card stock, and once with Pretty in Pink Prints Designer Series Paper. I trimmed the Pretty in Pink Top Note by cutting on the perforated stitches and adhered it to the Rose Red one.
The sentiment from the new A Little Somethin’ hostess set was stamped with VersaMark on Old Olive card stock and white embossed, then punched out. A Pretties flower and some Whisper White taffeta ribbon finish off the card.
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy New Year!
