Hey there blog following friends. This is a card I made earlier this evening just because. It’s not for any particular challenge or person. I was looking through one of my card magazines and kinda got the idea from one of the cards I saw in it. Not allot going on with it, but i kinda like it! I changed it up a few times as I was putting it together.
I was just recently in a ribbon swap and received this enveloped stuffed full of ribbon!! One of the ribbons in the envie was ther really cool felt ribbon that I just love! I was looking for something to use to separate my cardstock from the designer paper and this did the trick!!
I have this paper pack from K&Company and their Tim Coffey Designer Paper pack and I just love this pad of paper…..have I maybe told you that already in a previous post…..lol. The flowers are cut out from one of the sheets and then layered together. I didn’t glue the flowers down completely which gives them a very slight dimentional effect that works pretty well.
The card base actually started out white, but I didn’t like the sharp contrast so I grabbed by Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad in Old Paper and inked up the front of the card…..much better and more subtle! The sentiment is from my Close To My Heart ‘Frames, Tags, Borders’ set and I inked it using my Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink in ‘Forest Moss’ . I didn’t have a green ribbon that I liked so I took a cream colored piece and inked it with the same ink pad and it was the perfect shade for my card.
I think I need to start bloggin either in the early evening or morning cause I always seem to be cramming it in right before I hit the hay!! Oh well…..it’s not like I’m one to go to bed early!!! Later ladies…..thanks so much for stopping by once again!!
