Pocket Silhouette Stamping 411
I have recently discovered a great blog which inspires and helps direct me in the design of cards. You will want to visit Stamping 411 for great ideas, measurements, and an opportunity to post your creations. This card starts with a piece of Dusty Durango measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". To add texture to the card and carry through the polka dot theme from the ribbon, I ran it through small polka dot Stampin' Up! textured plate from the Backgrounds 1 (114512). I then cut a piece of Sahara Sand patterned paper from the DSP III series (level 1 hostess benefit) measuring 2 3/4" x 3 3/4". I cut a piece of Always Artichoke paper measuring 5" x 2 3/4". I used a 5 3/4" piece of Dusty Durango 1/2" polka-dot grosgrain ribbon (115609) and another piece to create the bow. I then cut a piece of dusty durango card stock measuring 1 1/5" x 4 3/4" and a piece of sahara sand at 1 1/4" by 4 1/2". I stamped the image using the Pocket Silhouette stamp set (111672) using Dusty Durange, Always Artichoke, and Soft Suede class stamp pads. I stamp the "thanks so much" on Sahara Sand card stock and punched it out with the Word Window punch (105090)and then punched a piece of Dusty Durango using the Modern Label punch (116630). Use your 2-way glue and some dazzling diamonds glitter, and you are all set!
