Dollar Deal Delights Part 3

Today's precious little dollar deal card is very simple, but also very striking! Supplies:
  • flower stamp (was originally a dollar, but got it on clearance for 50 cents!)
  • Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black
  • cheapo ribbon: pink and black
  • Nestabilities Sets: Petite Ovals Large and Petite Scallop Ovals Large
  • sentiment stamp: Hero Arts
  • LePlume Markers
  • scrap card stock
I created this card by first stamping and coloring my image on scrap white card stock. I die cut this using one of the oval dies. Using the next size up in the scallop set, I die cut a piece of scrap black card stock. On the card base I adhered a length of pink ribbon then layered the thinner black ribbon on top (I thought it gave it more visual interest rather than just plain pink or black). The scallop and image were adhered together with dimensional adhesives then adhered over the ribbon with dimensional adhesives as well (these dimensional adhesives aren't very thick so the affect is subtle, but lovely). Lastly, I stamped the sentiment a long the bottom and rounded the corners.

And there it is... the perfect card to brighten a friends day!

As always


  1. Beautiful card! I also love making cards, although I generally only make them around Christmas time! I get together with two of my friends and we spend an afternoon making Xmas cards for everyone, bringing along and sharing each other's scrapbooking supplies. So much fun! :)
