Challenge Two-fer: TSSC 30 & OCC Limited Supplies

I've been using a lot of designer paper in the cards that I've recently done and I thought that Our Creative Corner's Limited Supplies challenge would be a Challenge. Also as often as I can, I like to use the designs that MaryJo presents at her blog, Technostamper.

So tonight's card uses the OCC challenge of: NO designer paper, along with MaryJo's design drawing for this week.

All of the cardstock used in this card comes from my stash. I shudder to think how truly old it is!!! The little leaves were stamped on the top of the main panel using Versamark, while the bottom of the main panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug distressed stripes folder. (Though you might not be able to tell that the bottom half was embossed from this photo!) The two squares were stamped with Versacolor bark ink; the squares were punched out with a Marvy Uchida square punch, then edges were inked with the same bark ink.

The two squares were mounted with mounting foam to provide a little more interest. I looked at assembling the card without the ribbon or with a bowless ribbon. But in the end I liked the look best as it looks now.

Materials used: cardstock (unknown); stamps: mini leaves, Winter Holidays (Autumn Leaves); ink (Versamark & Versacolor); ribbon (Michaels); adhesives (Pioneer mounting tape & 3M pop-up foam squares); Cuttlebug embossing folder & machine; square punch (Marvy Uchida).

As always, thanks for looking.
