One Card, Two Ways with the Big Shot Pennant Die

Stampin' Up! Canada Sweet Pea

It’s amazing how the same card layout can create two very different looking cards. How can you ever run out of stamping ideas when a few changes makes a card completely new again?  Here’s a challenge for you today – take a favourite card and recreate it with new products. 

I have been stamping for almost 12 years now and it is the first hobby I have ever stayed with. But wait, not only do I still stamp but this fun, creative outlet actually pays the mortgage.  I still can’t believe it. What keeps me stamping? There is always something new to learn.

So, what did I learn today? That the scalloped circle from the Stampin’ Up! Pennant die fits perfectly behind the 1-3/4" circle punch. I have owned this die for almost two years and did not realize the two pieces worked together until today. Isn’t stamping exciting?

I took my new discovery and made two cards – one is fun and one is more elegant. What’s your favourite?
