Soooo, this started out as a card for my husband's Grandma, whose birthday it is while we are away. I like it so much though that I don't want to give it away.
To make this card, I used a LOTV die-cut and took my colour theme from there. I used kraft paper and some paper which, I think, came from an old Papercrafter kit, but I'm not really sure.
I inked the edges of all pieces of paper and the die cut with brushed corduroy distress ink. I then stitched all the layers together.
The lace ribbon is actually some self-adhesive paper lace which I wrapped around the panel before stitching the image on.
I have also used some craft gauze, an ivory heart charm which came with a previous Crafty Creative box, some blue ribbon to tie a bow around this and some paper flowers from my stash.
I had a wooden star lying around on my work desk, so I decided to add that too, as it went with the theme.
I also die-cut a Cheery Lynn small exotic butterfly from some blue scrap paper.
To finish the card, I added a flat backed pearl to each corner and added a silver sentiment. I love these sentiments, but have nearly run out. I have had them forever, so I don't think I will be able to get any more.
I want to enter this into the following challenges:
