I love using the top note die and decided to combine two different ways to use the die on one card. I m happy with the result and suits my style (even though I did sponge the edges!). I just started doing Big Shot classes for my customers and this is one of the items we will be doing at the next class. You have seen a few of the projects in previous posts and I just had another class last night, and will post a couple of those projects this week.

To create my focal point for the stamp: On the bottom layer, I die cut the cardstock with the Top Note twice and I die cut the top layer with the Top Note four times. I used the Thumping Technique on the leaves and flowers. If you don't know how to do the thumping technique, check out my Thoughts and Prayers card where I posted the directions.

Wings of FriendshipDetails: notice the "thread" I used on the  button?  It is paper thread made by cutting a sliver of paper with your paper cutter and then threading it through the button  and tying in a knot on the back side.  The attach to ribbon with a mini glue dot.  Easy peasy!  Click on picture to enlarge.
