If I can post the picture, you can make the card

This card is incredibly easy to make. It uses Heartfelt Thanks, a floral set from Stampin Up!, to make a holiday card (a great way to justify the purchase!!) Here's how I did it....

1.On a 3 1/2 square of Very Vanilla lightly trace a circle using a pencil. I traced an eyelet container.

2. The stamp the flower image in Mellow moss all around the circle.

3.Stamp the overlaying flower image in Always artichoke.

4.Stamp the "berries" using Purely pommegrante.

5.Using the double circle punch, punch out the two circles and thread artichoke ribbon through them.

6. Mount on a 3 3/4 in square of river rock, wrapping the ribbon around the river rock.

7. Mount on a folded piece of Artichoke at 4 x 8 1/2. Giving you a finished card front of 4 x 4 1/4.
8. Using the cropidile lightly "emboss" circles across the bottom using the A1 setting.

9. That's it!!!

My first Blog entry....

So I am blogging now. I never thought I would but, well all the cool kids are doing it. Anyway I hope to continually post some great ideas to inspire you to stamp and/or scrap.

Just so I can see how this whole thing works I am going to post a picture of a card I did at my last workshop. Let's see how I do...

Wow!! This is just as easy as stamping!!!
