Today I have a card that was created around some beautiful ribbon I've had in my stash for eons. I bought it because I loved it, but it's just too wide to make a pretty bow for cards because it adds too much bulk for mailing. I decided to tie a soft knot instead of a bow, and I'm happy that I was able to use some of it by doing this.
My card began with a kraft cardbase and a piece of vanilla cardstock where I used a SU! doily background stamp and some Versacolor sand beige ink. Next I cut a SU! paper doily in half and glued that to the top of the card; adding the ribbon right over it. To make things flow toward the bottom, I cut a fancy flourish with a Cheery Lynn die from kraft, then punched 2 different sized vanilla flowers with a large Carl punch, and a small Punch a Bunch matching flower punch. I added some Kaiser self-adhesive pearls to the centers and randomly added dots of Nuvo clear glitter crystal drops around the flourish. I used some Ranger Mushroom ink to stamp the SNSS sentiment.
I'm entering this card into the Double D Challenge which is "neutrals with texture." They've given us this pretty mood board to get us started:
Thanks for stopping by, and as the card says - I am thankful for you for taking the time to stop by and see what I've been creating :)
Have yourself a fantastic day and dance in the rain if you have to :)
