I made this card yesterday when I had a few minutes to sit down and play. I just got the 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain ribbon as part of the last product share (yes, I like to participate in those too!) and I wanted to put it to use! Be sure to check out the new Stampin’ Up! Product Shares I posted yesterday!
I decided to use the Sweet Pea Stitched felt instead of a bow to spice up the card a little more. To get the effect I wanted I used a large brad to pull the ribbon together and then adhered the stitched felt to the brad using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The stamp set I used is Heard from the Heart which is a great set that covers several occasions. The colors used on the card are Real Rose, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla.
Can you see the swirly texture on the Very Vanilla cardstock? I used one of the Stampin’ Up! Backgrounds I texturz plates to do this. I wish is was easier to photograph the texturz so you could see it better but . . . .
