Demonstrator Stamp 'n Chat Project

This was my project for our monthly demonstrator stamp 'n chat. I made the pocket using the Petite Pocket die. I even embossed the napkin using the square lattice embossing folder. The Designer Series Paper is from the new Summer Smooches. (only available now through April 30th, otherwise you have to wait for the new catalog to come out on June 1st)
This could be a fun way to decorate for a summer get-together. The napkin and fork are tucked in securely. You can add a small tag to the ribbon with the guest's name on it. Fun!

How Ribbon Rose is supposed to look

Here is the card (my version shown yesterday) with the ribbon rose how it is supposed to look. I just couldn't get it to look like this. I think both are lovely, just different styles.

Card from Upline meeting

This is the card that we made at the upline meeting. My ribbon "rose" looks more like a ribbon flower, but I still like it. This card is very heavy duty. The embossed card stock is layered onto a light cardboard to make it sturdy so that it won't fall over with the added weight of all the embellishments on the front. The stamp set is one that I don't own, because it is one from the new catalog that will come out in June. Demonstrators who attended Leadership received the stamp set free.

Make 'n take from Upline meeting

Here is the make 'n take card from the upline meeting. It was tricky to get those circles lined up just right. What a cute card, don't you agree?
