March 16 - Best Wishes Card

Today is my mother-in-law Jill's birthday. :) We had a family dinner at our house last night for her and I made her this card. Some of the products used are from the new Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog that is available on April 1st. The scalloped oval punch is quickly becoming one of my new favorites - you know how I love my punches! :)

Best Wishes Card

Ingredients:
  • Oval All Stamp Set
  • Scalloped Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch
  • Forever Flowers Wheel
  • Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand, Kraft and Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Chocolate Chip Ribbon
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip
  • White Signo Pen
  • Pearl
  • Scalloped Edge Punch (Fiskars)
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
Instructions:
  1. Score and fold your card from Baja Breeze cardstock. Using your scalloped edge punch, punch along the bottom of the front of the card.
  2. Cut a 5 1/2" x 2" strip of patterned paper and adhere it to the inside bottom of your card so it will show through to the front.
  3. Stamp your Best Wishes oval on Sahara Sand and punch it out using the large oval punch. Punch a scalloped oval from Kraft cardstock and adhere one on top of the other. Add a pearl under the sentiment.
  4. Adhere a strip of your ribbon across the front of the card and using that as a guide, roll your flowers wheel with Chocolate Chip ink. Color in the "dots" from your wheel stamped image with your white Signo pen.
  5. Adhere your oval sentiment shape with dimensionals in the middle of the card.
