I used my Tasteful Trims die to make the rick-rack..I saw someone do this with actual grosgrain ribbon but when I tried it the ribbon just frayed...so next time I will probably put some double-sided tape on the ribbon before sending it through the Big Shot...I'll let you know how it works...
Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, Cool Carribean

This little snowman is retired (actually he is from one of my very first stamp sets)...I paper-pieced the snowman and the ornaments for some color and dimension (hard to see)...he's actually stamped on the Very Vanilla circle and then the white snowman is trimmed and popped up along with the ornaments...
The D/S paper is retired SAB...
Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla

The patterned paper is 4 x 5 1/2...the top layer is 4 1/4 x 3 and is popped up with dimensionals...the top layer can be stamped or embossed...here I stamped with the French Script background stamp...the white circle is 1 3/4...the cut out circle is 2 1/2 punched slightly off center...
I think this would make a great Get Well, Sympathy, Birthday and Thank you card...wait till you see the other cards I made with this layout!

Just stamp the leaf/frond on the Old Olive piece in same ink color, emboss a long scrap for the accent piece, stamp the image and tie a rope and done!

I love that this card is a 'male' card...look at the detail on the embossed piece...I just lightly sponged the embossed piece with some Chocolate Chip ink...very lightly! The 'ribbon' is a piece of hemp rope that I had-sitting around the house, not my stamping room-I untwisted it and wrapped it around the center band...
Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
