Hi there folks!
I have a post at Really Reasonable Ribbon today. You know all the mixed media we’ve been doing on my youtube channel? Don’t throw away those juicy scraps with all the lovely colors on them! I’ve been saving mine, and had a chance to die-cut what I had left using my Sizzix dies to make a pretty, vibrant card for my niece’s birthday.
I had a large piece of yellow cardstock left from one of my Scraps of Darkness kits and used that for my card base. I had some Bristol vellum left from who knows what project. That made the inner square. The purple flower was die cut using a Sizzix Flower, Daisy #658502 Sizzlit die. I didn’t use it for another project that will post at Sizzix shortly, so I threw it into this project. It was stamped with Hampton Art and colored with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos.
Can anyone guess what I used to get the patterns on the inner doily shape? That one was colored with Clearsnap SMOOCH Spritzes and cut with a Decorative Frames Set #657094 Sizzix Sizzlit. But remember these are all scraps. The media mixin’ happened days before, so this card came together uber fast! All I really did was outline the shapes with a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist Pen, add some minimal doodling, and wrap with this gorgeous Yellow Iridescent Organza from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Oh my word that stuff shimmers in every type of light. This card will go to my niece, along with a little moola and some pretty, girly ribbons. Bright and pretty. One of these days, she will have to come visit and craft with me in my studio. That would be loads of fun!
