30 Minute Card

This embossed oval card really only takes about 30 minutes to assemble. 

I used the Sizzix oval embossing folder from Stampin' Up and their large oval punch for the center.  Measuring the outer edge of the oval, I cut an oval with my George cartridge to 2 x 2 5/8".  That's a perfect size to fit onto the embossing folder.  The center oval measures 1 3/8 x 2" in case you don't have the large oval punch.

The sentiment is from the CTMH Art Philosophy bundle stamps.
I added some drops of Pearl Pen to the lower corner just to break up the solid blue paper and added a ribbon to conceal the seam between the two papers. 
The edges of the embossed oval were inked with ColorBox chalk ink.
