How beautiful is this?! Paper threading, folks!! To recreate this beauty, use the Circle Border die on white cardstock & thread your favorite colors of colored cardstock through the holes after cutting to size. This Birthday sentiment is from Paper Smooches, Sentiment Sampler.
Can't pick your favorite color of paper? Try a Simon Says Stamp custom assortment pack from Bazzill!
card stock in this pattern before die cutting, but you could also just run the circle border die through with your favorite patterned paper! Tie if off with your favorite ribbon!
Lisa put a holiday spin on this card design! I think this is totally beautiful and elegant, and yet, it could be mass produced without a great deal of time!

I'm too shy to post my examples here...they're not quite worthy compared to the skill level I see here...but I'll keep working on it!ReplyDelete

What beautiful cards. Love how Lisa threaded cardstock to make those cards pop. Never would have thought of that to do. Brillant. I own a few of SSS dies and stamp sets.

These are so fabulous! I love each one. I need that circle die...it's on my wish list! I would use it as intended but I see other possibilies too!
