We are back with a sketch challenge this week at Merry Monday! I seem to be having setbacks getting back into the groove of making Christmas cards…..or maybe it is all of the fun NEW Spring/Summer products I have to play with! After mulling over numerous stamps to put in the circle shape…I decided to make another ribbon wreath card. I previously made one here and it was a very popular post. These are so simple to make and the end result is gorgeous! I would have loved to use the falling snow embossing folder I keep seeing on everyone’s blogs…but have yet to score one for myself…so polka dots it is! here is a look at the original sketch-
Here is a close up of the ribbon detailing. The white double bow was tied with a Bow-Easy. I know many of you think I am the bow tying queen….but I can barely tie my shoelaces! It was the best $5 I ever spent! I don’t have a source to send you to, if you google Bow-Easy, I am sure you will find numerous places to purchase one from. They should run you are around $5.
My bling is combination of glitter buttons with a sparkle gem center. The sparkle gems by Close To My Heart fit perfectly in the buttons in the Bohemian Collection. Super cute bling in a little package!
I kept the inside clean, with a strip of ribbon for additional detail.
