Today's cards are two that I had planned to post last year and did not get around to it – sound familiar?  
First card uses International Bazaar Designer Series Paper (retired) as the focal point of the card.

Stampin' Up! Jeannnine Tarrio DSP Focal Point

International Bazaar friend to friend


1.    Emboss White CS with perfect Polka Dots folder and glue to right side of Pacific Point card about ¼” frome edge.
2.    Punch 4 1 /4” squares from International Bazaar DSP and round two opposite corners only (watch direction of design when punching).
3.    Stamp saying on white scrap and punch with Word Window punch.
4.    Punch Pacific Point with Modern Label punch and glue behind white piece.
5.    Attach to bottom of embossed white piece with mini glue dot.
6.    Lay out DSP squares and glue to embossed white CS with glue stick or Tombow.
7.   Attach ribbon to card with Snail and trim ends.

Don't have any of this paper lying around?  Try substituting Island Indigo for the base card and All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack for the squares.  Or, Calypso Coral cardstock and Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Second card – Life in the Forest:
