PPA Challenge# 30 - KISS (Keep It Simple Sweetie)

My Great Niece Anna's Baptism is today! Congratulations little Anna!

I made her a card for her Baptism and decided to enter the PPA Challenge, KISS.

It's been a while. This is a new technique for me so I was pleased with the way it turned out. I used the "Finial Press" embossing folder from "Stampin' Up!" and I learned how to put a flat oval in the center of it. It was very simple and when I first saw one made this way I thought they bought the folders like this. I found a tutorial on Tammi White's Blog that showed me how to do it. You can find her blog on the left side under Blogs I follow. I used some embossing powder and one of the new punches (I love the new punches!), the "Scallop trim border" punch. You can find this punch in our "Sale-A-Bration" Catalog. *Remember, spend $50 and get a free item from this catalog until March 31st! Just click on the "Follow Me" button at the right and ORDER NOW!
This card was very easy to make and took very little time. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think. Thanks for looking!

Stamp Set: Special Blessings
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Gray
Ink: Versa Mark
Other Supplies: Finial Press embossing folder, Scallop Trim punch, Silver embossing powder, Filigree Designer Brad, Crop a dile Punch, Stampin' Up! heat gun and the Big Shot
