I stamped "enjoy" in Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock and layered a 1/2" circle of Blue Bayou Textured card stock and a 1/4" Square of Saffron on the "o." I scored the top, folded it over and popped in two black eyelets with my Crop-A-Dile. A piece of Hemp Twine is a perfect "rugged" touch to "tie" things up.
The horizontal banner begins with a layer of Blue Bayou Textured card stock with both sides ripped using a Tearing Strip. TIP: The Tearing
Strip has two different edges, each creating a consistent and distinctive ripped/distressed edge. It looks much more polished than when I do it on my own. I topped it with a layer of So Saffron and a couple thin strips of Blue Bayou card stock. TIP: This is a quick and easy way to create a striped look without having patterned paper.
Using the Canvas Background inked in Blue Bayou, I stamped it on So Saffron card stock and layered it on a card base of Blue Bayou Textured card stock (4.25 x 5.5).
The sentiment "life" was stamped on Whisper White and layered on a
Large Oval of Blue Bayou. I fastened it down using a Hodgepodge
Hardware Styled Silver Label Holder and Brads (exclusively available
through Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Mini).
