ENJOY EVERY MOMENT ...

I was instantly attracted to THIS clear envelope brag book by mzrobin on SCS, and HAD to case it into a card (then a second card). I love how Robin's design incorporated so many NEW Stampin' Up! items: the stamp set, Enjoy Every Moment, Bali Breeze DP, Striped Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon, Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets, and Antique Brass Build-A-Brad.

My cards measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", smaller than mzrobin's brag book. My first card is a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Pumpkin Pie CS, scored at 5 1/2" then again at 6 1/2". The Rose Red CS piece on the scored end of the card measures 4 1/4" x 1". The Daisy Dash Jumbo Wheel was used on the Pumpkin Pie CS background with Versamark. The flower center of the Antique Brass Build-A-Brad is from the Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons.

RECIPE
Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment, Daisy Dash Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Bali Breeze DP, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Taken With Teal, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink Pads
Embellishments: Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Antique Brass Jumbo Brads, Antique Brass Build-A-Brad
