The last of a set of monochromatic cards created with coordinating papers
Check out the other two sets here and here.
For my first card I started with a dark maroon card front and layered on strips of two of the other papers. I added a length of wide coordinating gros grain ribbon adhering one end to the inside of the card using double sided tape and the other flagged end to the card front using double sided tape as well. I applied glue stick to the area in between to get a smooth ribbon. I created a little laser printed greeting which I trimmed with scalloped decorative scissors, pierced each scallop and sponged on a bit of colour. I mounted it to the bottom edge of my large focal element before adhering it to the front of my card overlapping the ribbon using 3D foam tape.
I am happy to have made six cards with this challenge!!! I have a few more sheets to go and we will have to see what comes of those. Therese
