Good evening! I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday weekend. We had a fantastic time visiting friends and Aidan had a great time playing with his "cousins" and was sad when it was time to go. We were also able to be out for Black Friday shopping and had a great time nabbing some great deals in the middle of the night. I was very excited when I saw this weeks Stamping 411 challenge, not only is it pretty simple, but I'm known for keeping my designs pretty straight and inline and this card was fun to be a little "off kilter."
This card uses the Holly Berry Bouquet Speciality DSP as the focal point and to draw all the colors used. I also used the new Houndstooth embossing folder with the Big Shot on the Early Espresso layer for texture. The greeting is from the Bells and Boughs stamp set. I also used the Pines and Poinsettias stamp set and Wild Wasabi ink to stamp the background on the tag before punching it out with the Decorative Label punch. I used the Modern Label punch and the same DSP to punch out the backup tag and cut in half so I could extend them to show behind the greeting. The final touch is a small bow with the Real Red 1/8" taffeta ribbon.
This card is so pretty and simple that it would be great to make multiples and show off some of our fabulous designer series paper. I hope you enjoy and have a great week.
