Every Little Bit Beau Chateau

I am really liking this Beau Chateau decorative paper.  I ended up purchasing the download so I could print out the pieces I wanted to use.  Today this is my favorite piece in the pack.  I'm sure tomorrow it will be something different!  LOL

The center focal image is from the "Every Little Bit" set.  Among my favorite sets to play with!  

This card needed no words.  It can be used for quite a number of different occasions.  And you all know I love that whole concept in a stamp set!

My colors here are Marina Mist (the base of the card and the layer behind the decorative paper), Old Olive and Very Vanilla.

I have used this layout many times because I love it for the smaller images.  

To make this card do this:
Cut your card stock on the short side at 4-1/4" and fold it in half.
The Old Olive layer is cut 3-1/2" x 4-5/8"
The Marina Mist (smaller layer) is cut at 2" x 4-1/8"
The decorative paper layer is cut at 2-7/8" x 4"
The piece the image is stamped on is 2-1/2" x 2-1/2"

Stamp the image and color it in.
Tape the Old Olive piece on the Marina Mist base card.
Put a dot of tape on the decorative paper, about where the hole will be punched.  Layer it on top of the small Marina Mist piece. Take the 1-1/4" punch and punch through both pieces.  Let the layers drop to the bottom of the punch (closest to the handle - the paper can't go in any further than that) and center it.  Punch them both.  Then take the decorative paper and lightly affix it to a piece of scrap copier paper and take the 1-3/8" punch and punch out an even ring around the hole.  Tape those two pieces together.
Add Dimenisonals around the hole and center the image.  Tie your ribbon on and then add Dimensionals around the rest of the piece and set it in place on top of the Old Olive.  That is it.  Easy Peasy!!!  And not to mention adorable an fun!!!
