Leftover Makeover

I had the "parts and pieces" of a card leftover from a Technique Class I taught, so I wanted to use them rather than just put them away.  I really like to learn new techniques, but I consider myself a "lazy" stamper at heart.  When I sit down to make a card, 99% of the time it's not going to get more complicated than using my Big Shot and sometimes heat embossing.  So, I passed on the idea of recreating the technique card (Baby Wipe) and instead came up with this card.  I have much more fun with punches and my Big Shot!

Here's what I used:

Teeny Tiny Wishes

Rich Razzleberry
     5-1/2x8-1/2 Card Base
     3-1/8x2-3/4 Layer
Old Olive
     4x5-1/4 Embossed Layer
Whisper White
     3x2-1/2 Embossed Layer (that's the approximate finished may
        want to start larger)
     Scrap for Greeting (I stamped the greeting near the bottom of a piece of paper
        and then punched it out with my 1-1/4" Square Punch so I could get straight lines.)
Cottage Wall DSP
     Scraps for Butterflies
     1/2x3 Striped Layer

Black Stazon Ink Pad

Butteryfly Punch
1-1/4" Square Punch
Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack
SU! Square Lattice Embossing Folder
SU! Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder
Narrow Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon
Silver Brad
Paper Piercer & Mat Pack
Stampin' Dimensionals

Have a great week!
