RRR challenge #40 Second Entry


This is my second entry to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Valentines Day Challenge. There were so many great entries that I wanted to try to make a fancier card. The back of the card was made by using a Martha Stewart All Around the Page punch. I punchd a piece of green paper 6.75" X 5". I then made a card to fit in the the middle space. I inked the background of the card with Tattered Rose Distress Ink. I used the same ink to stamp a word background stamp. I used a stamp by Stampabilities. I cut out a heart and placed it on the left of the card. I traced around it and then made the wreath with a stamp set by Rubber Stamp Tapestry called Holiday Stocking. I only used the flower, leaf, and star stamps. The ink I used were all Distress Inks: Fired Brick, Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, and Iced Spruce. I basically just followed the directions given with the stamp set to make the wreath using only the 3 stamps instead of all 5. The large ribbon was white sheer. I inked it with the Peeled Paint to match the wreath. The small ribbon was also inked with Peeled paint. I used a mini Bowdabra to make the bow. I used a corsage pin with a pearl on top. Using Copic Markers, I colored the pearl and clear faceted bead. The rondelles were just pink ones that came in a multicolored package. Use a little clear glue on the last rondell to hold everything in place and stick through the knot. I cut a label using my Cricut and Fancy Label Cartridge. Stamp the label with a sentiment. I used a clear Stardust Gellyroll Pen to add glitter to the words. (I love this pen!!) I inked clear bling with a Copic and applied it to the label. The size of the small ones had to be really small because of the small size of the label.
