Quick Card: Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek
Created by Stacey Cogswell
Here is a quick, but yet classy card featuring the stamp set "Fresh Vintage" from the upcoming Sale-a-bration catalog. I saw the original design for this card on Mary Fish's blog and loved the color block look. I used the 1 1/4" square punch to quickly punch out all the of the background squares and then arranged them on a piece of Crumb Cake paper, (which will be trimmed down later), leaving just a little space around all the blocks. (Note: No square is needed in the center) The next layer is a 2 1/2"x 2 1/2" square with a 2"x2" white square in the middle. Stamp the flowers, punch out with circle punches and layer with a punched scalloped circle (here I used a scrap of designer series paper.) Cut a 1" strip of paper for the banner, stamp/heat emboss greeting and then use the corner of the square punch to create the end "flag" points. Trim other end to fit the card, adhere and add flower over the top with dimentionals. Add three little mini brads and you're done!
