You Are Absolutely Fabulous!

Happy New Year!! 

I wanted to create another card with the new set, Fresh Vintage along with a new embossing folder and decided to use this week’s CQC117 ColourQ Challenge colors- black and white with a pop of color along with the SUO35 Feel A Little Punchy Challenge.  If you have not had the chance to check out their site, the Design Team samples and all of the other entries are absolutely fabulous!

I chose a yellow pop of color (Crushed Curry- I know not everyone's favorite but I have quite a bit in stock) for this quick, easy and fun Clean and Simple (CAS) card :-)!!

To create this card:

With the Big Shot™ and the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die cut the large flower from Crushed Curry.  Emboss the flower with the Perfect Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder  and emboss a piece of Whisper White with the heart strip from the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder set.

De-static a piece of Whisper White with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the round image from Vintage Stamp with Versamark® ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  Once cooled, punch out with the 1 ¼” Circle Punch. 

Repeatedly stamp the floral scroll image using Crushed Curry ink on the smooth edges of the embossed Whisper White background and attach two strips of 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon. 

Stamp the sentiment using Basic Black Classic Ink onto Whisper White and use the Decorative Label punch to punch out the sentiment along with the Basic Black layer.

Layer the pieces and add the pearl to the center of the flower to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Fresh Vintage,  Absolutely Fabulous (retired)

Ink: Versamark™, Basic Black, Crushed Curry (retired)

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Crushed Curry (retired)

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Adorning Accents (heart strip) and Perfect Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Punches- Decorative Label, 1 ¼” Circle, Pearls, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon

I hope all of you have a wonderful (safe) weekend celebrating with family and friends!  God Bless you in 2012- you are all absolutely fabulous!
