For my cards I used this new background stamp that is becoming a fast favorite. I cut a circle with a Spellbinder circle die and used pop dots to raise my panel. The embellishment on the ribbon is the cutout circle...I just trimmed it down a little bit to make it smaller and added a large pearl.
You might notice that I have been using Labels 1 MEGA die from Spellbinders. Worth every penny for me because it's hard for me to make a 4x6 card. Here is another set of cards I created with the mega die and it's the same technique that I used for these cards.
I embossed the image with clear embossing powder on some water color paper. Before I emboss I like to use this tool with powder to get a crisp image.
I used three Mix & Match papers from Penny Black, two distress inks & SRM sticker sentiments.
If you look closely at this card you will notice that I added a white dot to each little fleck in the circles. It really makes a difference ... promise.
