Baja Congratulations!

Club card one from the weekend. The one that almost did me in!! I survived, and the end result was very well received!

Isn't this just beautiful?? Love this new set-Love & Laughter in the Occasions Mini Catalog. My struggle was with the cut and embossed image at the bottom of the card. We have some new products for the Big Shot (yeah!!) but I was having trouble. Granted, it was very last minute and I wasn't very patient!! So, I will be doing some research and playing more with them to get them figured out!! The girls actually just had the embossed image on theirs and it looked just fine.

The new items are Edgelits Dies (see that scallop cut on the bottom of the card front?) and Adorning Accents Embossing Folders (the embossed scallops). The Adorning Accents are not full size folders like we've had before, only about 2" wide. There are 3 images. My scallop die worked just fine on the two samples I did, but it wouldn't work at all well when I tried to cut them for the girls.

Card base is Baja Breeze. Congratulations was stamped in Basic Black above the Embossed Scallop. For the dress, we stamped the image in Baja Breeze on Shimmery White CS and cut it out. We attached a Baja Breeze Pleated Satin ribbon at the bottom edge and a Designer button to the dress. The dress is attached with dimensionals to another rectangle of Shimmery White CS. That is layered onto Baja Breeze and Basic Black and attached to the card base with dimensionals. Pretty quick and easy!!

I will do more later with the Edgelits once I have them perfected. Let me give you a tip though for using the Accents folders. Well this scallop one anyway. Use some temporary adhesive (Dotto) to hold your cardstock to the folder. They want to move around VERY easily!!

Let me know if you have any questions!!
