Tres Chic

Today's CAS (Clean and Simple) Challenge at SCS is - CAS169 - It's time to be Chic!!

I watched a video by the talented Valita on how to make this hat (I improvised a little because I didn't have the exact punches she did).  I then just "winged" it to figure out the punch art stand.  Really happy with how this turned out and think it is very "tres chic"!!  Hope you like.

"Tres Chic"

Stamp:  Sentiment is computer generated
Paper:  Soft Suede, Whisper White, Basic Black (SU!)
Ink:  Soft Suede (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  medium oval punch, small oval punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1/8" Early Espresso ribbon, Boho Blossom punch (smallest flower), bronze half-pearl, sponge, glue, sticky strips, glue dots, and dimensionals

I punched out the hat as per the instructions on Valita's video (click here).  I then punched out the hat stand with Basic Black cardstock, using a small oval punch for the bottom, a medium oval punch for the top (cutting off a bit at the top so it fits inside the hat rim), and for the piece in-between, I punched two medium ovals quite close to each other and then used the shape in-between them for the post.
