Cherish Simple Joys
Hi!! Finally made it to post a card!! I've had an idea floating around in my head about using bits and pieces of things suspended on ribbons...and this is what I came up with. I used 3 different stamps: #C104 (Maddy & Pip), #B104 (Flower Border) and #6005 (Cherish). Next, I used different punches to cut out just parts of each stamp, then attached a ribbon to each piece.
The card I used measures approximately 3-1/2" x 5"...I cut 2 pieces of printed cardstock into 3-1/4" x 4-3/4" pieces. I glued the first piece (dotted paper) onto the card. For the second piece (floral paper), I cut out the center... leaving a 1/2" border all around. Then, I simply taped each ribbon to the back of the frame (see below for picture) and mounted the whole thing on pop dots. (I even put pop dots behind each of the punched pieces to keep it more stable).
Paper used: Scenic Route - Canal Street Floral. Happy stamping!!!
