Monday's 3D Challenge~Coaster Birthday Date Book using Friends 24-7

Morning everyone!

I know where have I been right? Ever have a day that doesn't go as planned well that was my hole week! lol My washer and dryer were not working well so we ended up getting new ones amazing how that can tie up two days. Then we had some sever weather. We had 39 confirmed tornadoes go through our state and for sure 5 of them were around our surrounding area. We had no damage but I had lots of branches and trees go down. So last week there wasn't any time to stamp! Hopefully this week there is :)

1. Cut 4 pieces of Early Espresso card stock 4" x 4". Round all 4 corners using the 3/16 Corner Punch. Using the Big Shot and Embossing Folder Finial Press I ran 2 of the pieces through. I then took the Very Vanilla Craft Pad and ran it over the embossed images. Then snail down the embossed pieces each to one coaster. The other two pieces are for the inside of the coasters.

2. Cut 1 piece of Riding Hood Red card stock 3 3/4" x 3 3/4". I then took the Bella Toile stamp inked it in Riding Hood Red and stamped onto the card stock, using the Cutter Kit I roughed up the edges.

3. Cut 1 piece of Very Vanilla card stock 2" x 3 1/2". I took the En Francais Stamp inked it in Very Vanilla Craft ink and stamped onto the card stock. Now crumble it up good, then using Sponge Daubers I ran sponged Riding Hood Red and Early Espresso ink on the creases. I then ran this through the Big Shot along with the Embossing Folder Finial Press. I took the Scallop Trim Border Punch and punched on edge. I then sponged Early Espresso ink around the edges.

4. Cut 1 piece of Early Espresso card stock 2 1/2" x 2 3/4". I used the Cutter Kit and roughed up the edges.

5. Cut 1 piece of Very Vanilla card stock 2 1/4" x 2 1/2". I stamped the bird from Friends 24-7 in Riding Hood Red and rolled it in Early Espresso ink. I then masked it and stamped the En Francais Stamp over it using Early Espresso ink. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink. I snailed it to the Early Espresso card stock and placed Stampin' Dimensionals on the back. I then added Vintages Brads to the right of it.

6. For the inside inserts I cut 10 out of Very Vanilla card stock 3 3/4" x 3 3/4". I then used the Crop a dile and punched 3 holes through all the layers and tied 1/8 Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon through. I cut the edges and frayed the ribbon.

7. Punch out 3 tabs in Riding Hood Red using the Round Tab Punch. Using the Espresso Marker I wrote Family, Friends and Misc. on the tabs.
