I'm making 40 of these for a baby shower my Son's Girlfriend is giving. This stamp set is: Elements of Style and I got it FREE for attending leadership in January. This set is in the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog. Oh my! its going to hurt when I place my pre-order on April 1st. You will be able to order on May 1st.
I started off with a Mellow Moss base. I roughed up the edges with our Cutter Kit (page 191 in big catalog) and used the distressing tool. Autumn wanted them to feel like it was natural, green. After I distressed the edges, I sponged Chocolate Chip all around the base. The image was stamped in Vanilla Craft Ink on Kraft card stock and embossed with clear embossing powder on our Top Note die. I trimmed the edges around where the stitching line is and matted on another Top Note in Chocolate Ship. After I embossing the stamped image I used a sponge dauber and sponged over the entire Kraft Top Note, then tore in a few places and curled the edges. Added a piece of Vanilla 5/8" Satin Ribbon (all of the satin ribbons in the Occasions mini catalog are carrying over to the next mini, Yeah!) I stamped the You're Invited in Chocolate ink on Kraft card stock. This stamp set I got for FREE from Sale-a-bration, its called, Introducing. I used this set on the inside as well. I punched out with the Wide Oval Punch and added a button from the Button Latte collection, with some Linen Thread. I almost forget the Medium Jewelry Tag stamped in Chocolate Chip on Kraft. I stamped Baby & Boy on each tag and used the Linen Thread to hang it from the Vanilla Ribbon.
