Stars and Stamps sketch challenge #107. I was able to make a masculine birthday card by using up a couple scraps from my bin. The black panel was done with a Sizzix ef, and I used Copics in 3 shades to add some gradient color to the sentiment. The ribbon slide was cut with my Quickutz die and embossed with silver ep. I added some faux stitching and turquoise ribbon for the finishing touch.
Stars and Stamps ODBD challenge to use ribbon. I used a piece of polka dot dsp and embossed it with the petals a plenty ef from SU, dotting the flowers with a spica glitter pen. The image is sweet peas from Flourishes and I did a little paper piercing around the outside edges. The sentiment is by Verve stamps, and the ribbon is one of those little bobbin ribbons I picked up at JoAnne's. I tied a knot to the vertical ribbon first, and then added a separate bow done with the Bow Easy - fastened on top with strong tacky glue. The dsp and card stock is all from SU!
