Scallop Circle Flowers

I bought an old dictionary for 50 cents at a local resale shop just for the sole purpose of using the pages to punch out, ink up, and distress.  There are three generations of names (year of ownership and phone numbers) of the previous owners written on the inside cover! 

 Here's what I came up with....

Using the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, cut out 5-6 circles from old dictionary.  Crumple and open.  Stack together and pierce hole through all layers.  Secure with a brad. 

For the background, cut Basic Black cardstock to 5 1/4 x 4, and spray with Silver Foil Smooth Spritz.  Allow to dry.  Then, use Kind Thoughts Brocade Decor Stencil and add Basic Black Classic Ink on top for added dimension.  Attach to standard size card (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded in half).  Add punched flower, tags, and ribbon to finish card.
Here's another one...

Happy Stamping!  Bye for now, Maria
