I started with an A2 card (5 1/2"x4 1/4") in Old Olive that I ran through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I stamped the Solid Stripes background stamp in Old Olive onto a 2" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and added a narrow border of scalloped Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I used a piece of Rich Razzleberry 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon across the striped paper and popped up the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals. The stamp I used is from the Summer Mini. It's a set called Pretty Postage. I stamped it in Rich Razzleberry onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then punched it out with our new Postage Stamp Punch available in the Summer Mini as well. I then mounted it to Old Olive cardstock and cut it evenly on all sides with my paper cutter.

Have a great day and remember to keep it simple!
