Today’s card incorporates one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! products (I know, I say just about every Stampin’ Up! product is my favorite), but one of my favorite favorites, is the antique brads. They add a gorgeous, vintage touch to any project. For this card, I stuck with simple because I liked the way the brad stands out and echoes the round “For You” stamp. Here is a close up:
And the very best thing about this card? The ribbon is a clearance item, normally $6.95 and on sale for $2.79! Yippee!
The card is 51/2″ by 41/4″. Run the front only through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder. Punch the hole in the card front using the 1-3/8″ circle punch. Stamp the “For You” sentiment and then punch it out with the 1-3/4″ circle punch. Using dimensionals cut in half, adhere the “For you” sentiment to the inside of the front cover, centered in the circle. Stamp the itty bitty “Thank You” banner and run it through the Big Shot with the matching framelit. Attach the “Thank You” banner with dimensionals. Tie the bow. Then use the piercing tool and piercing mat to pierce through the center of the bow and the card front. Attach the brad. The back of the brad will be inside the card. To cover up the back of the brad, adhere a piece of 51/4″ by 4″ whisper white cardstock on the inside front cover.
