Button Bouquet Top Note Card
Well, here it is... another sample from the wonderful Love You Much Bundle! These cards were so much fun to do. This one incorporates the Big Shot and SU!'s exclusive Top Note Bigz Die along with the Candy Lane Designer Series paper. I love the added touch of using the Pink Pirouette button from the Button Bouquet Designer Buttons and the half pearl from the Pretties Kit. What an elegant element to add using just a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the half pearl to the middle of the button. So simple!
Here's what the card looks like from the side. To make your base card, take your cardstock, fold it in half and position it on the Top Note Die just below the top blade. Roll it through your Big Shot. Take a piece of Designer Series paper about 4-1/4" x 3" (enough to cut from the top of the Top Note die to just below the middle points) and run through the Big Shot. Then, using your paper trimmer, cut the paper just above the middle points making sure that your height is the same above as below the points (this is the pink pattern strip in the middle). Line up the Designer Series paper on top of your base card and adhere. Adhere the strip of DSP showing the opposite pattern. Stamp the Love you much stamp using Close to Cocoa classic ink and mount to a Riding Hood Red square of cardstock. Mount that to your card using dimensionals. Mount the button to the card using a dimensional.
I hope you enjoy this card. Come back tomorrow for another Love You Much Bundle sample. Until then... happy stamping!!
