Another Razzle Dazzle

Hi All! Here's another card using the new Razzle Dazzle set from the 2009- 2010 Idea Book and Catalog. I used some scraps I had left over from my last card to create this birthday card for my sister in law. The new In Colors are so pretty and here I have used Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo. The recipe is:

  1. Crushed Curry card stock is cut in half at 5 1/2" on the long side. The finished card will measure 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".

  2. Stamp the main floral image with Crushed Curry ink on the Crushed Curry card base front at offsetting intervals to make a tone on tone background. (*You can use a Stamp a Ma Jig for exact placement.)

  3. Stamp the same floral image on a scrap piece Melon Mambo, then punch with 1 3/8th" circle punch. (Faux stitching around circle with white gel pen.)

  4. Stamp small "stem-less" blossom on scrap Whisper White---five in Melon Mambo, five in Crushed Curry. Punch these out with the 1/2" circle punch.

  5. Adhere these "blossom" circles to the back of the stamped Melon Mambo circle all around the edge. Sponge edges of these with Melon Mambo.

  6. Ink "striped" background stamp. (* you can ink up your stamp on your lightest color pad (Crushed Curry) and add accents with your, Melon Mambo. Stamp on Whisper White then cut out.

  7. Stamp sentiment on this striped image and sponge edges. I added a stemmed flower cut out as an accent.

  8. The Melon Mambo rectangle measures 3 x 2 and has faux stitching around the edges. Ribbon is cut to approx. 9" and tied around this piece. Trim as desired.

  9. Attach all elements to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
