She's All That Times Three

I purchased this cute stamp set from SU! and it sat without being used for far too long! I finally decided to correct that! I made three different variations of this card...all with the same paper, ribbon and stamp, but with subtle differences in how they were assembled.

The stamp set is She's All That. The ink is from is called 'Blush'. I used decorative edged scissors to cut out mats for the main image on all three cards.

In this first sample I messed up the mat so many times while cutting that it ended up being cropped very close to the image! I cut the image out with my Coluzzle knife and oval template, and then used the oval template to cut out the mat in one size larger. Once I had the larger size oval, I used the decorative edged scissors to cut around the mat to get the fancy edge. I then pierced along the top and bottom of the card. I used my SU! punch to punch the slits in the image oval and then I threaded the ribbon through and tied it in a bow. The papers are from.... who am I kidding...I have no idea! The ribbon is from Michael's....isn't it pretty?!

On this version I used my corner rounder and skipped the piercing. A couple of cute pink brads on the bottom corner (Making Memories) and it was done!

On this version I used my ticket corner punch from SU! and pierced on all four corners. The rest is the same.

So, what do you think? Which one do you like the best?
