My First Bella Card

Today's the day!!! I fly out this morning at 11AM for my VSN getaway and true to my last minute personality it's 1 AM and I'm still posting, packing and trying desperately to find the email with my flight confirmation on it! LOL!
I just got this Bella in an image swap and thought I'd take a stab at my first Bella card. What a fun little thang Miss CosmoBella is! She just looks like the life of the party! I think I picked this card tonight because I might be needing a little something for my nerves before I get on that plane in the morning! I'm okay once I'm in the air... but the take-off and landing just leave me terrified. If you've ever seen Meg Ryan in the movie French Kiss, then you have a little idea what I'm talking about! LOL

I colored Cosmo with prismacolors and mineral spirits, added a little sparkle to her martini with my stardust pen, stamped cheers in Black Stazon with my Karen Foster Snap stamps and doodled a border around the edges. Next I framed her on some green Phoebe Basic Grey paper and added two photo corner punches to opposite corners. Next I matted more Phoebe paper on a Chocolate Chip card base and accented the circles with Dazzling Diamonds and Crystal Effects.

I originally had a different layout in mind for this card, but I messed up the doodles on the corner by the cheers, so I had to figure out a way to cover it up! Primas to the rescue! Turning Cosmo askew, I used my craft knife to slit a hole in the cardfold large enough for the ribbon to pass through on the top and bottom. Finished off with some Prima Forever Flowers and a rhinestone brad.

  3. What a beautiful Bella! Have a wonderful time with your stamping friends...you deserve it!

    Quick question for you when you have the chance, do you actually have a photo corner punch? Can you tell me who makes it? I checked my Archiver's last week and didn't find one, but if I know that they're out there, I'll be on a punch mission.
