I am loving my Big Shot at the moment! Well that's nothing new, but I have been using it a lot lately. I can't imagine being without it in fact.
Today's creation is inspired by a card on page 150 of the current IB&C. Everytime I see that card it pleases me. It could be colour combination or the balance in the elements, but what I like a whole lot is the texture. And that is all Big Shot!
Anyway, without CASEING the IB&C AGAIN.......here's my version
Stamps: Perfect Punches (I'm getting my money's worth out of this set too)
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Marina Mist & Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy
Big Shot, Elegant Lines embossing folder & Floral Fusion Sizzlits Die
Scallop Oval Punch
5/8" grosgrain ribbon in Night of Navy
Basic Jewels - pearls
The ribbon is a formal bow - very easy to do. Simply take your desired length of ribbon and fold each of the ends back and glue together to form a loop. Take another small length of ribbon (I used the same colour) and wrap it around the centre (perpendicular to the loop) to flatten the loop, adhere with snail. I then stuck the bow on top of a piece of ribbon that I'd already stuck to the cardstock.
Enjoy stamping today.
