OK, this card literally only took about 10 minutes to make. I'm finding that the Big Shot is making scrapbooking and card making so much more simple! I just cut the Raspberry Tart paper to 4 X 5 1/4 and ran it through the Big Shot Machine in the Manhattan Flower embossing folder, sanded it and tied a ribbon rose around it, mounted it on a So Saffron card with a Certainly Celery mat. After stamping a sentiment from the Cute and Curly stamp set in Handsome Hunter the card was done.
Don't you love the ribbon rose?? I found a video for it on this blog, it is so quick and easy but the perfect touch for a wow effect on a card or scrapbook page. I figured it would be better to post her link than to try to do a tutorial. It helps a lot to be able to watch her do it than to just see pictures. One of these days I'm going to figure out how to post videos. . .
The second card also uses the ribbon rose and didn't take long either. I double matted the Big Shot Top Note die cut out of Raspberry Tart paper. Then I trimmed off nearly half of another Top Note die (did I ever say how much I love that die??) and punched with the eyelet border punch. I tied a ribbon rose around it and added a sentiment from the hostess set, A Little Something.
