It seems these past few days that Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip are “always on my mind”. Combine these colors with my newly found passion…the Stampin’ Around wheel…and you have the basis for today’s card. The two hearts reflect the sentiment, while the paper piercing mimics the eyelet border. A small Button Latte flower button to compliment the scallops is the finishing touch. Like several of the cards which have preceded this one, the emphasis is on clean and simple, quick and easy!
- Make a card base from Baja Breeze and score at the top.
- Snap a Chocolate Chip cartridge and the Always in Bloom wheel into the Stampin’ Around handle. Using the Stampin’ Around Wheel Guide, stamp a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock. Tip: I prime my wheel by running it over a piece of scrap paper. This helps to ensure even inking.
- Use the Eyelet Border Punch to create visual impact. Adhere to your card base as noted in the picture, adding Chocolate Chip 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon to finish the edge.
- Ink the “Always on my mind” sentiment from the “Always” stamp set with Chocolate Chip and stamp onto Very Vanilla. Punch out using the Scallop Oval Punch and layer over a Chocolate Chip oval punched with the Wide Oval Punch. Tip: I popped it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
- Using the Full Heart Punch, punch out Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip hearts. Pierce the edges of each heart. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere the hearts and the sentiment to the card base as shown. Tip: Stampin’ Dimensionals allow the base colors to show clearly through the piercings.
- As a final touch, add a Chocolate Chip flower button from the Button Latte collection to the sentiment!
