Yes, You're the Best! This card is showcasing several things I want to point out. The bold paper both in color and pattern really draws your eye to the greeting. It's the Bohemian DSP from the new catalog! The colors in it are; Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Very Vanilla, Island Indigo, Delightful Dijon and Rich Razzleberry. This card was inspired by a picture I took while on Stampin' Up!' Grand Vacation a few weeks ago.
Here is how I did the focal point. I started with a 3 1/4" square of the Bohemian DSP. I then put the notetag punch all the way in and punched - and then did the same thing from the opposite side of the paper. This is a technique I learned at a Stampin' event with local demonstrators in April. I then stamped the greeting (inked with markers) in the opening.
I finished the card with the silver metallic Baker's Twine and a piece of the Bermuda Bay sequins. The textured embossing folder you see is new too - Boho Chic. I can't wait until June 2 - Miracle Day as I am calling it. . .to order more of the goodies from the new catty!
