Happy Moments


I made this card for a small swap I was in at the end of December.  I love using the Scallop Square die for the base of my card!  In this case, it is a cardfront, so I only used one layer of the Scallop Square.

I started with a base of Old Olive cardstock and ran it thru the Big Shot with the Scallop Square die.  I stamped the tree limb image from Cheep Talk on a square of So Saffron Patterns Designer Paper, then stamped the bird cage from Stampin' Up!'s Happy Moments Sale-A-Bration set in Chocolate Chip as if it were hanging on the limb.  I added a small Gold Mini Brad as a hanger.  Then I stamped Love You Much from Well Scripted in Chocolate Chip in the bottom right corner.  This piece was layered onto Chocolate Chip cardstock. 

I cut a piece of Very Vanilla and used the Scallop Trim Border Punch (another Sale-A-Bration option!) along the right side.  I used my Paper Piercing Tool to punch holes along each of the scallops.  I wrapped some Kraft Taffeta Ribbon around the left side and adhered it to my base card.  That bird cage is my favorite stamp in that set!

I hope you have a wonderful day.  I'm starting to see areas of my floor in my studio again.  Need to get it mostly picked up today so I can get ready for tomorrow's Stamp Club members!
