This is the first time I have tried the technique of punching down the sides of a card and unfortunately I didn't have the retired Stampin'Up! Ribbon punch to use, but I am really happy with the punch I have used (even though it is not SU).
As you can see I have combined a lot of Stampin'Up! products with a number of other beautiful items which I have been collecting (charms, flowers, bling swirls, metal embellishments, doily). I think they have all come together beautifully.
I created my own jewelled stick pin and cut the letters for "Mum" with my Big Shot from the new and stunning Champagne Glimmer Paper.
Not a lot of stamping on this one, although I have stamped on the inside of the card where my message will be.
Happy Birthday Mum. We love you very much.
