I stamped 3 identical images onto Very Vanilla Cardstock using Basic Black Ink. I punched 3 circles in Riding Hood Red & layered them over the top of the stamped images. I adhered the DSP to the bottom of the Very Vanilla & run the whole lot through the Bigshot using Square Lattice Embossing Folder. This was adhered to Basic Black Cardstock & then to the Base Card – Riding Hood Red.
Base Card – Very Vanilla – 5 7/8 x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 – Cherry Cobbler – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Using a pencil & ruler, I measured the middle of the Cherry Cobbler Card & placed the pattern square in the middle. I then used my Square Punch to punch the centre. Once completed, the Iris Pattern was placed in the middle with a small piece of sticky tape.
I cut 2 long strips of DSP, folded in half lengthways, opened & adhered together. I repeated this step for the 2nd piece of DSP.
I then followed the pattern with my DSP pieces, cutting & sticking the ends down as I went along. The end result is a lovely little centre piece for stamping an image.
I punched Very Vanilla Cardstock using the Square Punch. I stamped a couple of images onto Very Vanilla using Cherry Cobbler Ink. I adhered this to the centre of the Iris Fold.
I placed a piece of Lace Trim Ribbon towards the bottom of the Cherry Cobbler & tied a bow. I stamped the sentiment using Basic Black Ink, punched out with Oval Punch & stamped a couple of flower images onto the same piece as the sentiment. This was adhered to a piece of Basic Black Card which had been punched using the Large Oval Punch.
