March's Creative Cafe' kit - Fabulous, Gorgeous, Beautiful You!

Hey there....Laura here today in The Rubber Cafe' with a another soft, pretty card using the gorgeous stamp set from Creative Cafe' March Kit.  These cards are out of my typical comfort zone, since I'm in a family full of guys....so I'm enjoying the chance to get full of glitter and frills with a card like this one:


The Base:
Dark Brown cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card size

Layer 2:
Gold zigzag pattern cut to 4 1/4" x 2  1/2"

Layer 3:
White swirl cardstock cut to 3" x 5" as mat for embroidery hoop print
cut to 2 3/4" x 4 3/4"

The Tags:
The words "fabulous and gorgeous" are stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento on the white swirl cardstock, then trimmed down to about 5/8" wide, and 1 3/4" long.  Then clip out a "V" of each to make a banner.
Adhere these to the tags, add a jute bow and enamel dots.

The Center Panel:
Using the Spellbinders Mega Classic Scalloped Ovals (3rd size down), cut a mat using brown cardstock.  Stamp the hat on the stand, and the "you're beautiful" sentiment over it on cream cardstock, then line up and cut out using the Spellbinders Mega Ovals (3rd size down). Ink edges, color stand in with Copic markers.  Stamp a second hat, color with Copics and cut out the hat only.  Adhere second hat over first hat with foam tape, then adhere entire oval to brown scalloped mat.  Adhere to card.

Finishing:
Adhere completed tags to right side of oval.  Add crinkled seam binding bow.
Take paper rose, brush on a bit of Scrap Happy Glue, then sprinkle with You're So Fine Glitter to give the petal edges a gilded look:




Adhere rose to center of bow with Scrap Happy Glue.
Add 2 large enamel dots in upper right corner.

Thanks for stoppin' by today.....remember to take the time to make something beautiful everyday!
