Merry, Mary!

I love this card! It's so... "Merry!" Well, one reason is Mary Fish, my upline! She had a tutorial she calls One Minute to Wow and you can see her tutorial and card HERE. I used her technique, but made a different card. Below is my photo tutorial.

1. Use a background or large "busy" stamp. I used the Hydrangea from Because I Care (hostess level 1). Ink it up with VersaMark.

2. Emboss with gold ink.

3. Using my 3/4", 1/2" and the circle punch from Itty Bitty Shapes punch set...

4. Cut out as many circles as you can. I used the extras on other projects. See what you can create! You can use the circles as flowers. You can matte them for a more dramatic effect.

Card Supplies:
Card Stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Old Olive
Designer Series Paper: Nite Owl from Holiday Mini Catalog
Stamps: Because I Care, Christmas Greetings (sentiment), Tree Trimmings (ornament hangers)
Ink: Gold, Real Red
Punches: 3/4", 1/2", Itty Bitty Shapes
Extras: Old Olive 5/8" satin ribbon, Mini Glue Dots

I hope you enjoyed looking at my creation. Please remember to place your orders for Stampin' Up! using my Website.
