Hi friends! It's been a while since I made a card that wasn't for a DT assignment or challenge of some kind, so I decided to sit down for a few minutes this afternoon and make something just for me. I recently Pinned this photo for inspiration and immediately sketched an idea for a card.
It's pretty obvious how I was inspired! I wanted to replicate the broad red stripes, so I stamped them onto white cardstock using PTI's Faux Ribbon. I tucked strips of navy cardstock under the panel at the top and bottom and pinked the edges, then added a stitched "seam".
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler, and I balanced it by adding three navy buttons threaded with red and white baker's twine in the top corner.
The subtle texture on the striped panel comes from PTI's Linen & Canvas impression plate.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Enchanted Evening, White)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Faux Ribbon), Paper Smooches (Sentiment Sampler)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Real Red, Not Quite Navy)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate), Fiskars (pinking shears)
Accessories: Papertrey Ink (buttons), The Twinery (Maraschino baker's twine), thread
I've noticed a lot of designers posting cards that were inspired by photos on Pinterest. I have a ton of pictures saved that I'd like to use as inspiration for cards, so maybe I'll make this a semi-regular feature. What do you think?
I hope your weekend gets off to a great start! I'll be back in the morning with a new Card Patterns sketch!
