Carosel Notes Part Two

Are you enjoying these cute new carousel notes? I was really happy to see Stampin' Up! come out with these... they are really neat... unique... different. And did I mention how much I LOVE the chocolate envelopes? Oh yeah, I did mention that on the last post. Well, I really do.

On this card, I used the Creative Memories circle cutting system to cut a Chocolate Chip circle and then another circle out of the Afternoon Tea designer paper to mount on top of the carousel note. This may open up a whole can of worms here... but I'm just gonna get it out of the way. I'm really am a Stampin' Up! purist. I only use Stampin' Up! products to stamp with... to the point that I drive many of my customers batty. But, I simply CANNOT STAND the Coluzzle and I just have to admit that the Creative Memories cutting system is the best circle cutter on the market... so I just broke out of my SU comfort zone and got it and I do love it. Here are the results.

Now that that is out of the way... I used the flower from the Close as a Memory set and embossed it in white and then for words used the chocolate Love and Happiness rub-ons. For a little detail I used the crop-a-dile to dry emboss the little circles around the edge of the card. And then the taffetta chocolate ribbon adds a little texture and finishes of the card. Very very simple but elegant card.
