Hit the Top Note with a Reason to Smile

I thought you would like to see another card using this month's EXCLUSIVE stamp set - Reason to Smile.  



You can get this stamp for FREE with a order of £60 or more or, if you would rather, you can buy it for £18.95 (wood mount) or £14.95 (clear mount) - more details here.



The flower image was first stamped onto Confetti White card using Basic Gray ink, then using the Stamp-a-ma-jig the coordinating image was over-stamped in Real Red and Old Olive inks. The sentiment from Hopeful Thoughts was stamped in Basic Gray, again using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure it was in the correct place. This piece was matted onto Basic Black card. The Top Note Bigz Die was used to cut a piece of Real Red card using the Big Shot which was then embossed using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  A piece of Basic Gray Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Paper Stack was added to a card base in Basic Black.  The card was assembled and finished with a piece of Real Red Satin Ribbon tied in a bow.
