Garden Party for September 9

Its Tuesday - Garden Party day where a clipping from the "Inspiration Shoebox" is used for card inspiration.

Well, I wanted to toss this one aside and pick something else - but I was told that would be cheating.

So I attempted it. This one was a real stumper for me. My first card was yuck - big time. I thought maybe a beautiful stamp image might save me from myself.
So here is my attempt. I don't know about the card in total - but I ended up having fun with elements of it.

First - I got to use some Black Magic cardstock and one of the new Cuttlebug Embossing Border sets. Now these are fun! Oh My - you can place them anywhere on the card. They are so cool.

I used the embossing border on the Black Magic cardstock and sanded the raised area to expose the color.

This stamp is Victorian Rose from Impression Obsession. I love the swirly goodness. (the greens match better in real life).

The corner on the top was made with the scalloped corner punch and then embossed with the embossing border to match the strip. I gotta tell ya, I could play with this cardstock and the cuttlebug folders for a long time.

So here is the picture for next week. If you decide to play along, just leave a comment here with a link to your creation and I'll highlight your card in next weeks post.

Happy stamping everyone!
