My first attempt using the Lace Ribbon Border punch

A quick and simple Thank You card this time round. I made this for a friend who was my first customer, as a thank you for her order. This is the first time that I used the punch, in fact I have to admit that I borrowed it to try it out, but I will most definitely be putting it on my next order. Shush, don't tell my husband because the list is getting longer by the day.

The card is a piece of Melon Mambo card stock made into a 3.75" x 3.75" card base. Using the new Lace Ribbon Border punch I punched a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock. I also punched out three 1" Old Olive circles using my 1" Circle Punch. These were fixed behind the card ribbon and then the whole thing was matted onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.

I used a Melon Mambo marker on the oval stamp from the Perfect Punches stamp set and the message was from the Just Believe set and was inked using an Old Olive marker. I used my ever trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure the message was central in the oval before punching out the oval using my Extra-Large Oval punch.The message was fixed to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I love using the Stampin' Write markers, they give stamp sets many additional uses as you can simply ink up the parts you want to stamp and then you don't get the parts you don't want to use. You can also ink up parts of the stamp in different colours to get different effects. I'll post some samples of this later in the week.
