Gabby's One of a Kind

Yes, I said Gabby's one of a kind ~ but not made by Gabby, just sent to Gabby!

My dear friends birthday is on the 2nd and I made this card to send to her. I used my new set One of a Kind.

The base card is Chocolate Chip. Is this a new fad or am I just seeing a lot of Browns lately?

I layered it with paper from my Creating Keepsakes slab (that I scored on from BIG LOTS! It was only $6.00!!!) and placed a HUGE flower from Heidi Swapp that I sponged on Rose Red ink on to. I first punched a scallop circle with my Marvy Giga Scallop punch and used the colozzle to make the circle with out of the dotted paper.

I stamped the flower from One of a Kind 3 times with Rose Red ink all on different paper from the slab. I carefully cut each layer and placed one on top of the other with pop dots. I then placed that on top of the flower. In the middle of the flower I took a button (she loves buttons!) and threaded some waxy floss thru it then glued it to the center of the flowers.

I stamped the saying with Chocolate Chip and Rose Red ink on to some scraps. I placed that in the lower right corner. It was fairly easy to make, it just involved a bit of cutting.

What I didn't tell you was I messed up on the cutting and actually had made 2 other flowers that I cut out and just did not like. But all in all once I was done I knew that she'd like it. Hope you do too!
