I really liked this as it is both a card and a gift.
As you can see in the picture of the inside it holds a magnetic book mark and some chocolate.
I cased Pennie McCallum a fellow demo
The instructions can be found here.
I used the following supplies for this project:
Stamp Sets: Bold Blossom from current Mini and Punch Bunch SAB
Paper: Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla cardstock, Sweet and Sour Specialty DSP
Ink: Rose Red, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Scallop and 1" Circle Punches, Real Red Taffeta ribbon, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, magnetic sheets
Lorraine was really appreciative of this little token of appreciation and it was really fun and easy to make.
Thanks for stopping by....

I didn't forget the birthday....this year, just to post the card that I made for our brother-in-law. His birthday is New Year's Eve so it gets missed or forgotten a lot ;-(
This year I was on the ball and didn't forget it, YEAH!!
I love the Circle Circus set, it's so versatile and can be glammed up or toned down, it can be used for any occasion.
I actually used my Color Coach for this card and created a card front using Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Rich Razzleberry, and Real Red inks and the different circles in the set.
I used a piece of Real Red that has been scalloped with the Bigz XL die, Tasteful Trim, they were mounted on a Marina Mist card base,with a piece of Daffodil Delight 1/8" taffeta ribbon wrapped around it.
The sentiment is from the set "On Your Birthday", stamped inside the dotted, real red, circle from the set on Whisper White, inked with Marina Mist. This is punched out with the 1 1/4" circle punch and mounted on a Real Red 1 3/8" circle and this was all popped up on dimensionals on to a Marina Mist Scallop Circle that has white gel pen dots on each scallop, then attached with adhesive to the card front.
It's a pretty card, I will have to use the Color Coach more often.
Thanks for coming by!

Colors are Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo.
The DSP is retired from last year's Occaisions mini.
Nothing fancy just simple and cute!
Have a great week!

She chose the colors and then she punched out circles in 1/2", 3/4" and 1" sizes of each color ( Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz).
She then had a great time gluing them all on to the card front ( Poppy Parade) that she chose as well. She looked at all the SU embossing folders and decided that the perfect polka dots folder went best with the circles.
We ran this through the Big Shot and glued it onto a Whisper White card base. The sentiment is from Word Play it was stamped on Whisper White then punched out with a circle punch and matted with a Pear Pizzazz Decorative Label punch. We also added a Peach Parfait Twill Ribbon to the top to complete the card.
I think she did a wonderful job! Don't you?
Thanks for visiting.
