I really like how this card turned out. Neither my upline or me is into bright colors, but these worked so well together. And she gave me an awesome idea: see that strip of paper at the bottom? It's patterned paper with a roller stamp over it! Who would have thought to stamp on patterned paper? That stitched grosgrain ribbon is awesome, too. I made the bow using, of all things, a fork!

This card features a stamp that is on my MUST HAVE wish list -- the "thinking of you" sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (item #115370 for wood mount and #127802 for clear mount), which can be found on page 133 of the 2012-2013 catalog. I was so excited that I stamped it perfectly with Red Razzleberry the first try! I'm normally a hit and miss stamper, but with Stampin' Up products the only thing I ever mess up is alignment (stamping at a slant...don't you hate that?!). We used the little hearts edge embossing folder for texture, and I love how SU has coordinating stamps and punches. That scallop would have been a pain to cut out without the punch! Then we added the designer paper and some of the baker's twine. I added a clear heart button to the center of my bow.
Now this card was the most challenging. I used the striped embossing folder and forgot to just emboss the front...I embossed front and back! Oops! Nothing a little cardstock can't fix, though :) This is a stamp set I never would have thought of purchasing, but it made a lovely card, designed by Peg Adams. This card features Stampin' Up's new seam binding ribbon, which I am in LOVE with! That linen thread goes great with buttons, such an easy vintage look! (Product List Below)
