A2 cards and 2 patterned papers were run through the Big Shot with the Sizzix Card Fronts, A2 Eyelet & Ornate die. after die-cutting the papers, they were put into the paper trimmer and cut about 2/3 down from the top, so that they could be alternated on each card. Button die-cuts trimmed with ribbon were placed across the 'seam' with foam tape and two more die cuts were layered on for lots of dimension.
The stamps used for the sentiments were stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia. The stamp sets used were, of course from Paper Wishes: Birthday Greetings and Stamp & Punch.
After the greeting was stamped on the patterned paper, it was punched with a 2-1/2" punch. A 3" scallop circle punch was used for the mat layer. After I saw the inside photo, I decided it needed a piece of knotted ribbon attached ~ sorry, no pic!
This is a shot of the dimensional elements.
This is the second card, with more layered die cuts and a pretty bow, laced through one of the die cuts.
All the pieces were inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I am really happy with the turnout. Stay tuned to the blog for more Chocolate Dipped cards, coming soon!
