For this very feminine card, I paired the Collage Curios stamp set with the Tea for Two designer series paper. The stamped flower matches the flowers in the paper so well.
I used markers to colour directly onto the stamp before stamping onto Very Vanilla card stock. The two colours in the paper – Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade – are both found in the 2012-2014 In Color Markers set. If you don’t want to invest in the ink pads, the markers are a great way to own all the new In Colors and spend less.
The stamped image was punched out with the Small Oval punch and layered onto a 1" punched circle of Lucky Limeade card stock. I inserted the image into a Soda Pop Top that I flattened with my Big Shot. Simply sandwich the Soda Pop Top between two clear cutting pads and run it through on tab 1. I tried flattening the Soda Pop Tops with and without an added piece of card stock or lightweight cardboard on top of the Soda Pop Top and thought they warped a little more with the added bulk.
A couple of different ribbons layered together with a big bow and this card was finished. It would be handy to have a few of these on hand and add a greeting inside – happy birthday, thank you, thinking of you – as needed.

Oh to flatten or not to flatten,
that is the questions that I ask of ye…
This first time I made this card I left the Soda Pop Top unflattened as below. But it seemed too harsh for the softness of this card so my final version has a flattened Soda Pop Top. Which do you prefer?
This set is such a great value. In clear, each stamp is only $2.20 each.

These are the perfect retro accent for the Collage Curios stamp set as images fit just right. The 1/2" and 1" circle punches are sized to match.
