This card is for Kristina’s Color Inspiration (#45). I’ve been letting the color combo stew in my head all day. The inspiration for this card came as I was trying to put together other cards. I had to stop what I was doing and go after this one so I didn’t loose it!
I had the layout almost immediately and knew what I wanted in each section. My task then was to figure out what stamp image to use. I found a good combo of paper and image, but I didn’t have the right ribbon…so I searched some more. Once I got a little further in my index I found the right stamp set and then the right paper and the right ribbon – woohoo!
The card base is textured white cardstock, but you can’t tell in the photo. I actually had the card together before I decided to watercolor the image – it just needed that little bit. The ribbon is velvet ribbon I kept from a present a year or so ago.
The inside is simple – the image is from the same set and the paper is from the same pack – I like that it looks sorta like ribbon.
