I played around a tiny bit with my new Big Shot and made a card for a new hostess who booked a workshop. I used the Top Note die and the wonderful Parisian Breeze textured cardstock:
You're probably getting sick of seeing this cardstock, but it is so pretty! I cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/4" x 8" and scored it at 5 1/2". Then I cut the Top Note and mounted it on top as shown, added the ribbon and button and a NEW sneak peak--a scalloped oval punch and coordinating set that will be in SU's Occasions Mini! The set is called Oval All and it fits in the large oval punch perfectly. I LOVE my Nesties, but it is nice to just pull out some punches and have matching shapes! Then I took the "negative" piece from which I punched the Top Note and made this card:
And yes, I went against my tradition and put on a big honkin' bow!!! These cards were soooo easy! I cannot wait to play some more! I can't sleep at night thinking of all the stuff I could be doing! Hopefully the Mojo Monday sketch will be posted soon, (although I already saw it on Mary Fish's blog here) and perhaps I'll have time to do that today also!
