SSC 244

Good morning everyone! And happy Leap Year! Boy did this month just fly by! And the week is going by quickly, too! It has been good so far! 

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Stamping 411. Specifically, I was inspired by Tammy Fite's card. I loved the way she incorporated the Doily die with the sketch. And I haven't used my Doily die all that much so I set out to see what I could do! I wanted to keep it really simple and so I ended up with a black and white card. I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and wrapped a piece of Basic Black satin ribbon around it. I stamped the greeting from Just Believe in the lower right hand corner in black StazOn. Then I adhered it to a card base of Whisper White. Then I took another piece of Whisper White and ran it through the Big Shot with the Doily die. I popped this up onto the card. I used the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch and punched Basic Black card stock and the circles #2 die to cut a Whisper White circle. I stamped the stem from Just Believe in black StazOn onto the circle (twice). The circle is adhered to the scallop and the scallop is popped up onto the doily. I added two rhinestones under the greeting and called it done! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
