#2 panels are 2 1/2" plus the 1/16" white border and each individual piece is as follows in width:
Dotted Swiss - 1 1/4"
Striped - 2 1/4"
Floral - 2"
Image panel - 2 3/4 x 2 1/4" plus 1/16 and 1/8" borders
-The images are colored with Prismacolor pencil and mineral spirits. The sky is sponged in using a hand made cloud template.
-I cut the length of cardstock needed for the Cuttlebug panel plus a bit extra, cut it in pieces, did the negative effect embossing technique, punched the two slots for the ribbon after measure and marking with a pencil, taped them back together and taped to the white panel below it. Oh, and I tied ribbon on it somewhere along the way.
-The small scallop is done with Fiskars scallop scissors.
-Punched hearts (Fiskars) were glued on after the paper piercing.
-The image panel sets up on foam squares.
I like how the flowers from CHF that I cut out match in shape to the one on the embossed panel. Those are brads in the center.
