This card was heavily inspired by a card I saw in a blog called Sentiments by Denise. http://sentimentsbydenise.typepad.com
It's the first Thinking of You card in the October 29th post. Thanks for the inspiration, Denise!
The base of my card is Bravo Burgundy. The Paisley is inked with Bravo Burgundy craft and stamped on Sahara Sand. The bottom corners of the Paisley panel are punched with the Ticket Corner.
I used the Giga Oval Scallop punch to punch out some Ivory cardstock and used my Bravo Burgundy Stampin' Marker to outline the scallops. I used the Mega Oval Scallop to punch out some Sahara Sand cardstock, on which I stamped the Pinecone in Chocolate Chip craft ink. I embossed the pinecone with Holographic embossing powder and dotted the scallops with my White Gel Pen. The card is finished up with some ivory picot ribbon from Michaels.
Materials all by Stampin' UP unless otherwise noted:
Stamps: Peaceful Wishes, Paisley
Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Sahara Sand, ivory
Ink: Bravo Burgundy Craft, Chocolate Chip Craft
Tools: Ticket Corner Punch, Signo White gel pen, Giga and Mega Oval scallop punches by Marvy Uchida (www.joann.com), Holographic Embossing powder by PSX which I don't think is available anymore. Stampin' UP carries Hologram Highlights embossing powder which is very similar.
Embellishments: ivory ribbon from Michaels
