My First Heaven Blessed Card

Hello, fellow stampers!  I hope you're all having a wonderful week.  Today's card is going to be one of the cards that will be made at my Hello, Spring! Stamp Camp next month (March 27).  I just got this cute set a week or so ago, and this is the first time I've had a chance to use it.  The set is in the Occasions Mini, and it's called Heaven Blessed (p. 20)  The images in this set are so cute.  The little boy and the bunny are two separate stamps.  You can stamp a different scene with this little boy, and the girl that is also in the set.  There is also a stamp with another bunny laying down, a stamp with little baby chicks, and 2 greeting stamps.  The "Happy Easter" I used on the card is one of the greetings.  The other Occasions Mini item I used was the designer paper called Twitterpated DSP (p. 13).

The white circle was die-cut with the 3" Originals Die (p. 220), and the scallop circle frame was die-cut with the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die (p. 222).  I embossed the top of the Baja Breeze card stock with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder (p. 219).  The border was made from two strips of card stock (Riding Hood Red & Pear Pizzazz) punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch (p. 211). 

Here's how I made the border.  I started with a 4" x 1" strip of Riding Hood Red card stock, and punched one long edge with the Scallop Edge Punch.  I punched a 1" wide strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock that was a little longer than the red strip (around 4-1/2" long).  I then lined the scallops in between the red scallops and attached the strips together.  I then trimmed the Pear Pizzazz strip so it was the same length as the Riding Hood Red one.  I then attached them both to the bottom of the 4" x 2" Twitterpated DSP strip.

The bow was made with a 9" strip of Pear Pizzazz 1/2" Seam Binding (p. 195).  I made the strip into a loop, squeezed the loop together, and put the center into a 2011-2013 In Color Printed Designer Brad (p. 199).  I then punched a hole into the Baja Breeze layer, and inserted the brad.  I learned how to make a "Faux Bow" on Dawn Olchefske's blog.  She has made a great video tutorial, and you can see it HERE.  I then added everything to the Pear Pizzazz card.
