Then I cut out a circle using my mega circle from Marvy and a scalloped circle using my Giga punch from Marvy. I then used my Faux Ribbon scalloped stamp and made it into a "not so perfect" half circle..LOL and stamped it onto the white card stock circle. After adding the birthday sentiment from Birthday Basics I stamped the background pattern image once in the center in soft sky.
I then chopped the circle off so that you would not see it sticking out from the ribbon I tied around the center. I matted it all on Aqua Mist card stock and then onto my Stamper's Select card base. Doesn't the soft sky and Aqua Mist make a great match?
At this point the card was lacking something so I started digging through a can of buttons my Gramma gave me and found these buttons that closely match and best of all the white thread was already tied through them. Perfect! I used tombow to glue them down in between the raised squares.
I think this picture gives a bit better view of the dimension. It also gives a sneak peek at the inside of the card.
I simply stamped the same colors, same image along the top and bottom. I added the faux ribbon scallop as a top and bottom border. Then I stamped 3 of the blue images and the chocolate sentiment over top.
All in all a great card! I would like to see this combo in other colors too....imagine chocolate and pink or yellow or purple...Oh the possibilities!
