Vintage Vogue Congratulations Card

I created this card for my boss's anniversary with the company, but it could easily be adapted to fit other occasions (feminine birthdays, Mother's Day, thank you, thinking of you....) with a different greeting. It's actually a lot easier than it looks! So start, I stamped the foliage/filigree stamp from the Vintage Vogue set in Old Olive on two opposite corners of whisper white cardstock. Next, I punched out ten Chocolate Chip tags using the Medium Jewelry Punch. I adhered the first row of tags so that the bottom of the tag lined up with the bottom of the white panel. Then I lined up the second row of tags on top of the first, covering up the round top part of the bottom tags. Next I cut a strip of cardstock the same width as the tags, and laid that across as my horizontal part of the fence. Now for the fun of embellishing! I stamped the small flowers from the Vintage Vogue set onto Whisper White cardstock with Dusty Durango and So Saffron ink and then cut them out using our small snips. I adhered those to the stamped white panel, making sure to adhere a few with Stampin' Dimensionals to give them a little lift. I embellished them with pearls from my stash. I also used the Embosslits Beautiful Wings die to cut out a butterfly to adhere to the fence. I finished it up with a piece of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon and stamped greeting (I used the Well Scripted set).
