My first card today is one I did before we left for vacation. Don't tell any of my Stampeas friends but this is for a challenge for Winterfest also...shh... it's a secret. Background is masked with versamark and then distressed with T.H. Distressing inks. Sentiment is Unity, BG stamps are Unity and Close to My Heart combo.
I did this one last night playing with my new Sizzix dies on my Cuttlebug. I just love how you can use any brand or type of die-cut with these simply by playing around with what plate you use. This is one of the old fat ones, and I simply removed the 'A' tray and used to 'B' plates. The flowers are cut from some of the paper staks that I bought on sale in Florida (DCWV), ink distressed and mounted with pop dots. I embossed the flower centers with Swiss Dots and mounted flush on the card base. Card base papers are an old MM stack. Green ribbon is CTMH, pink is new Target $1 set. Make sure you check out their new ribbon sets, thre are some real cute cupcake ones! I bought 6 sets last night. Sentiment stamp is Studio G.
