Card No.6

Back with Card No. 6. I am entering this card in the December Sir Stampalot Challenge which is to use the bingo card below and choose three squares in a row and use that formula on your creation:

I chose to go with the bottom row and use ribbon, a tag and a punch on my card:

I used my corner punch to round the corners of my base and main layer. I then used a negative circle die cut to act as a reverse mask on my card front and used a tiny flower from Beautiful Blooms II to repeatedly stamp within the circle with Tempting Turquoise ink. I stamped the umbrella handle from Scattered Showers in Early Espresso ink.  I embossed the bottom of my main layer with my Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and then tied some brown and white twine above the join. This was then threaded through a die cut tag that was stamped with my Celebrate sentiment using Early Espresso ink before threading through a pink button. The main umbrella image was stamped in Melon Mambo on some spotted pink card and hand cut before being adhered with dimensionals above the umbrella handle.

I rounded the corners of my inside layer with my corner punch and then embossed the bottom again with my Elegant Bouquet folder. A thin strip of the pink spotted card was adhered above this and the sentiment from Scattered Showers was stamped in Early Espresso ink. To finish off the inside, I stamped the small flower randomly around the sentiment in Tempting Turquoise ink.

Okay, I am off to try and get all my presents organised as the big day is approaching too quickly!!
