More Cards

It's getting redundant, but this is what I love to do the most, make cards!

When I sat down and designed this card, it was meant to be a wedding card, but I think it could be used for other occasions, too.

I couldn't find a ribbon that I liked for this so I bought two. A thin pink one, and a wider white one, I simply glued the pink one on top of the white one. (If you do this, you'll want to work with the ribbon quickly, once the glue dries it's no longer soft and pliable). I adhered that ribbon to a pink piece of card stock, all across the inside and front of the card, in one continuous piece.
On the inside I then taped down a square of green paper on the right hand side, where you would write the message.

On the outside, I took the same green paper and cut a pretty looking 'medallion' out of it, I stamped the words "on your special day' onto this piece of paper, and used the same ink to "stain" the edges.
I adhered this with 1/8" thick foam squares, so that it is popping off the card a little. I then stamped a heart in the bottom right corner and lightly shaded in the heart with a colored pencil.

Like before, I couldn't waste the scraps, so I made gift tags with the extra!
