My card base is 4.25 x 5.5 and scored at the top. I used a Scallop Border Punch to doll up the bottom (and the back). TIP: I initially went longer than 5.5″ by about 1/2″ (top to bottom) since I knew I would lose a little length when I used the punch.
No stamps or ink required. The pear is from Stampin’ Up!’s Bright Delights Rub-Ons. Crisp and easy placement on a 2 x 2 square of Whisper White is a snap. A white Latte Designer Button with a sliver of Chocolate Chip card stock threaded through gives the pear 3-D pizzazz.
After piercing the edges, the pear panel was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to Chocolate Chip. TIP: I prefer using dimensionals when I layer paper pierced panels so that the little holes don’t get smashed by layering paper to paper. Kiwi Kiss card stock follows.
I layered a Chocolate Chip checked pattern from Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper (2.25 x 2.25) over another square of Kiwi Kiss. The horizontal panel above the scallop edge is a combination of Kiwi Kiss card stock and a Hidden Garden Rub-On.
The final touches are two more Latte Designer Buttons (I gotta order more of these guys–love ’em) and a “perfect pair” sentiment from Chit Chat Rub-Ons. TIP: Buttons stay securely in place with Mini Glue Dots.
