Our hostess, Denise, is challenging us to create a card or project this week where we layered some ribbon (FTTC214). Take a wide ribbon and layer a more narrow ribbon over top of it, layer two or more colors of twine together, etc. Get creative!
This week I'm headed home to Ontario for about 6 days and I'm lucky enough to be going out with my 3 girlfriends one evening, two of which, have birthdays this week. So I knew I was going to need some fun birthday cards to take home with me; hence all the matchy-match birthday cards!
For my violets (and sentiment), I used the violet bouquet image from the "Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1" stamp set using Memento's "Pistachio" ink. I think this image looks almost water coloured using the green ink instead of black ink.
Birthday Doily Violets
Perfectly Pierced Classic Window die using Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock and inked up using Ranger's "Old Paper" Distress Ink.
Black Tuxedo" ink onto vellum paper and die cut it out using the Spellbinder's Perfectly Pierced Classic Window die.
Square Violet Birthday
For my final card, I again used Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock with Memento's "Black Tuxedo" ink and the "Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1" stamp set. For my layered ribbon this time, I used the sheer green ribbon with some multiple strands of Flourishes Metallic Silver String.
I used a variety of Copic Collections today to colour in all of my card images:
