Blogger's Challenge: Patriotic or Baby Cards

I thought about doing a Patriotic Baby card and then just had a small piece of inspiration with this card...

Yes, I used the Top Note Die and my Big Shot! I LOVE my BIG SHOT! This is one of the exclusive dies available only from Stampin' Up! (Sales plug: Big Shot and the accessories will be available for all customers to purchase on Tuesday!!!!)

I layered strips of leftover cardstock onto Vanilla cardstock and used that piece to die cut the "top note". When turned, it looked like a medallion and the card took off from there!




Thanks for looking and be sure to see what the other members came up with by clicking on the Blogger's Challenge link on the right side of my blog. Which card did they choose to make? I'm off to find out myself!



Recipe:
Stamp Set: Nursery Necessities
Cardstock: Real Red, Very Vanilla and Night of Navy
Ink: Very Vanilla Craft Ink
Punches: Large and Small Star
Other: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Night of Navy Grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals

Nicely done. It's great to see what can be done with the Big Shot (which I haven't yet purchased). Love the way you created a Patriotic Flag with it.
