Boho Friend

That's Boho, not bozo or boohoo. Just Boho! It's the name of a trend. Kind of western and kind of modern. You know - Boho! O.k. I have no idea what I am talking about but it is a trend in stamping. And this card is made with stamps from the Boho Backgrounds. I really love this set!

This card layout was one I saw while cruising the blog world last weekend. Of course she used paper that we don't sell but she did use the flower medallion thingy that comes in the set. And I thought to myself, "I can do that same thing with product that I sell!" So, I made one! And it's so super simple! The hardest part was getting the words on that tiny sliver of paper that I used! I think an easier way would be to stamp it on white and then use the cutter to cut it out!. The words were just a little too big for my word window punch, otherwise I would have used it.

The words come in the set but they are just one tiny part of the stamp. So, I had to tape off the other parts of the stamp that I didn't want and then ink up the stamp. Then BEFORE I stamped onto my paper, I removed the tape (this is a very important step if you use this "technique"). The medallion was stamped with Purely Pomegranate onto Purely Pomegranate cardstock then punched out with the scallop punch. Then I stamped the same image onto Pretty In Pink cardstock with the same ink. I used a circle punch to punch out the middle (and now I can't remember which sized circle punch I used). I put a rhinestone brad in the middle and popped up the pink circle and the scallop piece. Enjoy!!
