I got busy today doing a bit of cleaning around the house so this afternoon I treated myself to a bit of cardmaking. Unfortunately the cleaning didn’t extend itself to my craft desk and after a week of creating it’s looking, well… creative!
Today’s card is one that I think you could change the greeting so that it could go for a variety of occasions, it could be a birthday card, get well card, thank you card, thinking of you, or whatever else.
To make this card I started with a base of Pink Pirouette cardstock and I cut it so that when I fold it, it opens from the bottom. I find that makes it easier when I’m using ribbon to be able to adhere the ribbon ends to the inside of the front of the card. After I finish the card I simply cover the inside with some paper to hide the ribbon ends. To the top of the card I adhered some patterned paper and then punched out two strips of card with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. The scallop borders are done in Melon Mambo (hot pink) and Pretty in Pink. The seam where the Melon Mambo border and patterned paper meet is covered with the ribbon.
The hot pink doily is actually from some patterned paper I have which is laser cut so that the whole 12 x 12 sheet is doilies. I simply snipped off one of the doilies and used that as my main image with a pink rhinestone brad in the middle to finish it off.
So there’s today’s card. I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out but then again I do enjoy making monochromatic cards.
