Boho Backgrounds 5

Another card I sent in for Display at Leadership.

This one I wanted the medallion to appear to be background designer paper. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig, to evenly stamp the medallions with Night of Navy on Whisper White cardstock. After I made several rows, I cut it down to a 2" strip. Then I used the slit punch to make a scallop for the left side...punching a 1/16" hole in each scallop and adding a Pretty in Pink mini brad to each hole (my favorite part of this card!)

The navy "stripe" you see on the left is actually Navy grosgrain ribbon to hide the seam between the two separate pieces of cardstock. I stamped the medallion and punched it with the Scallop Circle punch...then behind that I punched two Round Tab punches in Pretty in Pink and layered them as a "faux" circle behind the scallop. Thanks So Much from Think Happy Thoughts is stamped with Navy and punched with the 1" punch, the center flower is stamped with Pretty in Pink and punched with the 3/4 circle punch...all the circles are layered together and then popped with dimensionals.

Had a fun class today...a couple people couldn't make it at the last minute so it was small, but hey...they received my individual attention, right? Tomorrow I'm volunteering for Stampin' Up! with Ronald McDonald House. We are converting old card front swaps into cards for the residents to use.

Have a great weekend!
