I was just playing around with a few scraps on my table and put this lovely together in just a few minutes. I kinda went crazy with the arrows, but it's still cute. Even with the crooked greeting...

  • Crumb Cake card stock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
  • Card stock scraps: Coastal Cabana, So Saffron
  • DSP: Retro Fresh
  • Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Express Yourself
  • Ink: Coastal Cabana, Early Espresso
  • Accessories: Arrows embossing folder, Deco Labels Framelits, Label Card Thinlits, Chevron Ribbon, Silver Glimmer Paper, 2-Way Glue Pen, Stampin' Dimensionals

To make this lovely start off by folding the Crumb Cake card stock on the score line. Then run it through the Big Shot in the Arrows embossing folder. Now wrap a piece of Chevron Ribbon around the card front and tie it into a knot. 

Take a scrap of Coastal Cabana card stock and run it through the Big Shot with the 2nd from smallest Deco Labels Framelits. Stamp the splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge onto the label twice in Coastal Cabana ink. Then run this panel through the Big Shot again with the arrow framelit from the Label Card Thinlit set. Stamp "bravo!" from Express Yourself onto the label in Early Espresso ink.

Take a scrap of Retro Fresh DSP and glue it onto the card front with some glue stick. The piece just has to be big enough to cover the die cut arrow completely. Now stick the label onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals so the patterned paper is inside the arrow window. 

Now use the framelits to cut two more arrows, one from a scrap of So Saffron card stock and one from Silver Glimmer Paper to add some sparkle. Glue those arrows on pointing toward the greeting with some 2-Way Glue Pen. 

That's it! Super fun and simple!
