Beautiful Bamboo

A couple of days ago I came across a card made with a bamboo stamp that I just had to case. Thankfully, the same stamp is in my collection so I made the card below.

I started with a 5-1/2" cream colored card. I cut a 5" cream colored layer and embossed two lines at the top and bottom. I stamped the bamboo in brown (off center) and attached this layer to a green layer. I stamped a second bamboo and die cut it with a circle die. I inked the edge of the circle and sponged on a little brown at the bottom left side. I then attached it to the first image, lining up the stalks. I added a piece of sheer brown ribbon and attached the layers to the base card.
