Ombre with Fringe Scissors!

Happy Hump Day Stampers! I have a little treat of a card for you today. This is one of those "Takes Ten (minutes) Cards". Take a look:

Have you seen Stampin' Up!'s new "Fringe Scissors" in our Spring Catalog? They are the hottest new tool around! All I did was cut 4 shades of cardstock to create the "Ombre" look and snipped away with my "Fringe Scissors". How neat is that?

The strips of cardstock measure 4 1/4" x 1 1/4". The colors are Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Marina Mist and Pacific Point. I layered each color about 1/4" higher each time I added a color. I glued all the layers down using "Sticky Strip". I finished off the very top of the last layer using "Coastal Cabana 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim".

I stamped the "Whisper White Cardstock" base using the flower image from the "Peaceful Petals" Stamp Set in "Coastal Cabana Ink". I stamped again on a piece of scrap cardstock without re-inking the stamp image. I then added the sentiment and cut the shape out using the "Decorative Label Punch". I added two "Pearl Jewels" to the flowers and glued the sentiment in place using "Stampin' Dimensionals":
