Bella Toile meets Vera Bradley

I decided to try a new design challenge this morning.  The challenge is to design a clean and simple card using this Vera Bradley purse as inspiration.  At first, I thought I'd like to use the Medallion background stamp, but I quickly saw that it wasn't the right feel.  So I pulled out another background stamp, Bella Toile, which I haven't ever used!

 

So here's my card:

 

 

Now, remember, the challenge was to make a SIMPLE card!  My card base is Confetti White card stock and meaasures 5" x 5".  Next is a layer of Ruby Red card stock  The Chocolate Chip card stock has been heat embossed using Bella Toile background stamp stamped in Craft Whisper White ink then sprinkled with White Embossing Powder.  The Stampin' Up! Heat Tool is just the thing to get a beautifully embossed image.  I layered that onto an additional piece of Confetti White card stock, then used some of my rubber scraps to pop that image up.  The sentiment comes from Sincere Salutations and the small flower is from One of a Kind.  I used the Wide Scallop Punch to punch out the image after doing the stamping.  But I didn't have an additional larger punch to border that with.  So I adhered the white oval to a piece of Ruby Red card stock and carefully cut around it freehand.  My Paper Snips really did their job!  I think it turned out pretty straight–maybe not perfect, but certainly good enough!  That image is adhered to the card with Dimensionals.
