Hand Penned Makes a Card!

Hand Penned (pg 15 Holiday Mini) makes any plain card special.  Check this one out which was made at my last retreat...

Start with a piece of old olive and run it through the Big Shot using the oval designer frame (pg 218).  Round the corners of this piece and a piece of whisper white cut 1/4" wider on both sides.  Then punch out another piece of old olive using the Lace Ribbon Border punch (pg 211).  Make sure your piece has three "flowers" to be sure it's wide enough for the next step.

Now attach this to a piece of Real Red cardstock and punch out an ornament making sure the flower is in the center.  A little bakers twine and a pearl, and you've finished the focal point...

Well, maybe the Hand Penned "Merry Christmas" is the focal point.  It's a win - win!

Retreat starts tomorrow ... yeah!

This is my favorite and think I have all the necessary equipment!!! Will have to use a different green but then...mine will be original (after I make the copy!) Thanks Bonnie for the great card ideas - this will be one that I will sure want to do over Thanksgiving.
