Its a Party on Sycamore Street!

This Card was so easy and fun I used our circle punches ranging from 1 3/4, 1 1/4, 1, 1/2 inch. I would also use the punches one size up to punch out the paper except for the 1 3/4. I cut paper 2 x 2 to glue behind that circle. So here's what you do.
Your base card is 4.25 x 11. Then cut a piece of white cardstock 4 x 5.25. You will punch your circles out first. Quick Note leave enough room to tie ribbons at the bottom. Then using quick dry glue glue them down with the design you want. I used the Sycamore street paper because with Sale-a-bration we all need lots of ideas. Then I ran it through the Big Shot using our Polka Dot embossing folder. Then tied to ribbons on the bottom again Sycamore Street Ribbon from SAB.
I used dimensionals to lift it on the base card then sprinkled it with our Rhinestone Jewels. The greeting was from Bloomin Marvelous again SAB and the 1.25 scallop circle punch. Oh yeah Island Indigo Ink.
I hope you Love it and thanks for stopping.

Bleeding Hearts

This card is Super Simple and can be done in a rainbow pattern or in Manly colors. It also gives your Big shot a work out. I choose my colors and cut the cardstock 5.50x4. I had each person pick the embossing folders they wanted to use and using the Big Shot emboss each color using a different folder. Then punch out 7-8 circles the size is 1.25 of each color. I over lapped each row Varying the circles which cant be seen really good here. Since Valentines is coming I choose to use With Love as my greeting. Tied it all up with a 1 inch satin bow. My base card was cut 4.25 x 11 in whisper white. Thanks for stopping!

The flags are punched out using a 1 inch punch and folded in half, glued in half onto plain white Bakers Twine. One of the flags I used a print from the Summer Smooches paper.  I used a 1 x 5.50 strip of white and using the scallop trim boarder punch. The strip of pool party is from the 12 x 12 designer series stack and it is cut
1 x 5.50. I dazzled a bit with some rhinestones on the flags. The greeting is stamped in Indigo and punched out with our new mini scallop punch. It is popped up onto a Framelit from the Apothecary Accents. The greeting is from our Sale-a-bration set Bloomin Marvelous. Thanks for stopping!
