Today's card was made with one of the newer MS punch sets called "Vintage Floral" and the bird cage stamp is from Studio G. I cut my book page paper to a 3.25" square and punched the corners first then the sides. The pretty floral ribbon was on a bolt from Hobby Lobby in the clearance isle so I bought the whole thing. The sentiment is from SU "Fabulous Phrases" and then punched out with the "Modern Label " punch.
I don't remember the name of the Sizzix embossing folder I used and I apologize for that. Here is a little tip when you are embossing light colored paper. Take a blender tool or sponge and apply some Distress ink- the raised design will really pop as the ink gives it some depth . I like to use Antique Linen but on other cards that are a medium or darker color, I have used a white opaque ink.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. I am sorry for the delay between posts but during the summer I don't like to be tied to the computer. I have been very excited about the new Stampin' Up catalog and with CHA right around the corner there will be oodles of new "yummies" for us. Has anyone seen the new Spellbinders that are soon to arrive. They are beyond awesome. Start saving your money ladies. I will be found checking the cushions for extra change.
~Have fun and enjoy!
