Best Wishes

Don't you just love white and navy together? First of all, I cut my card about 1/2 inch larger than the size of the Snowflake Embossing folder which I just received. I added the navy ribbon before gluing it down to the card so the ribbon doesn't show on the inside.

I cut out my scallop and then cut out the straight rectangle, both from my Spellbinder collection of Rectangles. Sometimes the stamped image is much easier to add after the mats are cut and other times it is easier to cut after it is stamped. It just depends on what I am doing.

I love this elegant owl from the Inkadinkadoo Flourishing Bird Set and I thought the clean, crisp feeling of this card was determined by him. I popped it up using dimensionals and added a slightly blue bling to make sure he got all the attention he needed.

I stamped Best Wishes from the Special Occasion Stamp set by JustRite Stamps. Then I determined the best size of circle I needed to add a tag at the bottom of the card. This also carried the navy to the bottom of the card, which I felt it needed.
