Baja and Rose

Another square card today! I remembered seeing a card made like this, using scallops and pearls and Baja Breeze - yum!

All supplies used for this card are from Stampin' Up! except for the wording and image. I dampened the seam binding before crumpling it all up and then used my heat gun while I kept crumpling it in my hand. I think in hindsight that I need not have had such a crinkled look for this card but all done now!

Now I really must go get some cards ready to send to the Tourist Centre to sell. I have fun making them but do not enjoy the finishing bits like adding inserts etc. I do wish Stampin' Up! would bring out more stamp sets with verses that are suitable for the insides of cards.

Stamps: JustRite Stamps
Card: SU Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Baja Breeze Designer Pattern paper, Springtime Vintage DSP
Ink: SU Pear Pizzazz, Rose Red, Versafine
Other: SU flower punch and dies, Nestabilities Labels die, SU seam binding and pearls

I love the amount of "crumpling" you did on the seam binding. I think when you don't do enough, it ends up looking like you were just too lazy to iron your ribbon! So this looks like it is on purpose and really looks great! Love these colors together and the image is perfect for your card! Best, Curt
