As promised here is the start of the cards I showed at Stampin’ Up! Convention in Melbourne last week. This card I showed how I cut my wide striped Grosgrain ribbon down and melt the edges with my lighter so they do not fray then showed how I tie my bow. You can view the video here.
I love the colours in this card, for the background I have clear embossed the Medallion on Autumn Spice DSP from the Summer Mini then brayered over the top with Pear Pizzazz ink to make the embossing pop a little. Along the bottom is just Rich Razzleberry cardstock that I have clear embossed with the blossoms stamp from Elements of Style then stamped a little script from “French Foliage” in Early Espresso. I have used Stampin’ Up! Watercolour paper cut out with the Sizzix Beautiful Butterflies die, I again used the blossom stamp from Elements of Style with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Markers to colour the flowers and leafs then I water coloured lightly with Watercolour Wonder Crayons. I like adding a little vintage feel by stamping the script and ink splat from “French Foliage” and sponging with Tea ink from the SU! Distressing Essentials kit.
Inside….. oh pretty……
