CSS Alumni Limited Supply Challenge

Hello and welcome to another fun Blog Hop with the CSS Alumni Team, featuring Gina K. Design Stamps. If you have come from Cheri's Blog you are in the right place, if not, you can start from the beginning over at StampTV.
This time our challenge is a "Limited Supply Challenge", using only these items:
  • One Neutral color for your card base: White, Ivory, Black, Brown or Kraft
  • Two different colors of card stock
  • One patterned paper
  • Three buttons
  • One color of ribbon
  • As little or as many images as you'd like
So, here are the cards I created:

Best Friend: Very feminine card :)

  • Make card from card stock.
  • Die-cut scallop frame. Mat card stock and patterned paper, Add stitches. Adhere to card.
  • Stamp sentiment and die-cut and emboss. Ink inside edges. Mat it with another piece of card stock using foam tape.
  • Add button in left corner.
  • Adhere ribbon with button.

Such beautiful cards, Giovanna!! I love the sentiment on the Best Friend card and the pretty colors you used, as well as your sweet ribbon treatment.
The punched circles with the strip of designer paper over them is such a cute and unique idea! I love it!
