This week seems to be flying by kind of…..anyone else out there think so? I always feel like some weeks fly by and others so go slow when really they are all the same. I find that super crazy! If your week is going slow…..this Hope card will give you the strength to power through to the weekend! 🙂
This card could be created in many different colors. I know that different ribbon colors stand for different types of cancer and diseases. Also, the fun floral pattern can be colored any way you wish for any type of thinking of you card! I love it!
I started with a Pink Pirouette card base. Next, I die cut out the letters in Rich Razzleberry from the Large Letter Framelits. Rather than using an “O”, I used the ribbon from the Support Ribbon Framelits Dies. I die cut out 3 ribbons in Bermuda Bay and then stamped the floral image from the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set onto Whisper White. I stamped the ribbon in Memento Ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. Most of the images were so small that I didn’t blend much but just colored light and dark in spots.
Now it is time to assemble it all. First, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the background. After placing the letters and ribbon on it, I realized it looked too plain. Using the flower from the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set, I stamped it all over the background. When I did this in class, one of the ladies used Pink Pirouette for the little flowers rather than Rich Razzleberry like me. I think I liked her’s better because it filled in but was more subtle.
Using the Fine Tip Glue Pen, I added the letters and layers of the ribbon. The extra layers really made the ribbon pop and I loved that look and texture! The hardest part of this card is just the spacing and making sure the letters all fit. I find it best to place them down and then pick up one at a time to glue down.
