All About The Big Shot...


I made this card tonight at a demo meeting with my upline, Sandra, who is just wonderful. This card is just great, I love it! Look at that gorgeous edge, that is the beauty of the NEW Eyelet Border punch from SU! The bird and flowers are dies from SU's Birds & Blooms. The branch (we used 2 of them) is SU's Little Leaves die, that is cut on Kiwi Kiss textured cardstock. There is a SU fire rhinestone brad in the center of the flower as well. The base of this card is Riding Hood Red, the pink is Pink Pirouette which was run through the Big Shot with the SU texture plate called SU Backgrounds. Sizzix did a great job with the Big Shot, this is one awesome tool. However, I must say, the exclusive artwork that's found on the SU dies just can't be beat. They are all so pretty. The bottom left hand of this card is where I will stamp a sentiment later tonight. I can't wait to make some more of these! And I had forgotten how nice it was to make something that someone else has cut, it's been about 6 months since that last occurred! I am thankful to her for making this card with us, and I am glad to be able to post it here as I haven't had much stamping time this past week. Hope you like it!
