This project uses a die-cutting machine to emboss the background. But if you don't have a die-cutter you can use the traditional dry embossing method using brass templates, a light source, and a stylus.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Mint green cardstock by Paper Reflections - cut one piece to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and a second piece to 1/2" x 4"
Chocolate brown cardstock by Paper Reflections - cut one piece to 4 1/4" x 11" and a second piece to 1 1/4" x 4"
Express It magnetic stamp set from Making Memories
Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up!
Magnetic stamp base set from Making Memories
1/8" hole punch
1/8" eyelet setter (I use the Instant Setter from Making Memories, which has exchangeable tips for both punching holes and setting eyelets in three different sizes)
Corner rounder punch
Paper trimmer (not pictured)
Big Shot die-cutting machine by Ellison Design (not pictured), or other die-cutter that is compatible with Cuttlebug dies by Provo Craft
Your favorite paper adhesive (I used double-sided scrapbook tape)
Small white silk flower (hint: you can buy a bundle of silk flowers at many dollar stores, and then just disassemble them to get the flower off)
4 1/2" of white 7/8" wide sheer wired ribbon by Offray
Silver 1/8" snap (also called flat-topped eyelets) from Making Memories

Step 7: Adhere

Step 9: Set Snap
Step 10: Adhere to Card Front
Step 11: Make Card Base
Step 12: Adhere Card to Base
Note: because the base of this card is made with brown cardstock, you'll need to either write in it with a light colored pen, or adhere a piece of light colored cardstock to the inside to write on.
