Wish Big!

I was inspired by a gift bag at target to make this card.

Paper: Melon Mambo and Vellum cardstock
Stamps: Artistic etchings, Word Play
Accessories: 5/8” Black satin ribbon, Pearl, Scallop edge punch, 1-3/4” scallop circle punch, dimensional
Ink: Versamark, StazOn

- Fold 4-1/4” x 11” Melon Mambo piece of cardstock in half so seam is on the top of card
- Stamp circle design from Artistic Etchings on cardfront using Versamark
- Cut vellum cardstock to 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”
- Stamp circle design on vellum using StazOn ink, I prefer to let dry for a few minutes (no smudge)
- Using Scallop edge punch, punch 5-1/2” side of vellum (be careful, the punch might not easily release the vellum)
- Adhere vellum to cardfront lining up scallop edge with bottom. There will be a ½” – ¾” space at top.
- Tie Black satin ribbon around card front and tie in a bow or knot, cut ends at diagonal
- Stamp “Wish big” from Word Play on scrap of Melon Mambo
- Punch out using 1-3/4” scallop circle punch
- Adhere message under knot using Stampin’ dimensional
- Optional: add half back pearl on ‘i’ in wish
Ta-da! So easy and so cute!
