300! Post.......

Gosh! Just noticed this is my 300! Post on my little old Blog, surely I haven't made 300 cards??? No wonder I working my way through the whole of Stampin' Up Cardstock Supple:-(

This card is mainly using the Seeing Spots Stampset.....I made the base card from Pink Passion cardstock. Its half a sheet of 12 x 12, scored at 4" and 8". To get the tag shape, I measured 1 1/4" from the edge and 1 1/4" from the score lines and cut away the bits in between.

I used the 1/4" square punch to thread the ribbon through.

The front has a clippy bookmark to can remove and use. The paperclips are from Staples. I used 2 scallop circles and the circles punches 1 3/8 & 1 1/4 ones to make this.

The cardstock used is Pink Passion, Pixie Pink and Whisper white. I stamped all over the whisper white piece of cardstock in both Pink Passion and Pixie Pink ink with 2 of the stamps to form the background. I used the Happy Everything stamp set for the sentiments. The bottom piece of cardstock is only taped down on the bottom and the 2 sides.

I did some pricking around the edge and went over it with the white gel pen. I added the ribbon before I added the whisper white layer to the actual card.

For the middle layer I used the Stem Sayings stampset to make the flower Stems then added a couple of 1 1/4 circles that I had stamped with one of the spots in Pink Passion.

I added a couple of flowers that I had cut out.

I used the corner rounder to make the scallops at the bottom.

For the last layer I split the cardstock, used the spiral punch down the left hand side. I added a couple more flowers, and used the sentiment from the Happy Everyting stamp set again,

Although this is quite a large card it does fit in a normal envelope.

Thanks for looking,
