The finished card I'm quite pleased with. I don't often do distressing, I much prefer the clean look of a perfect card. But I had opted for the Kraft card from Docrafts (LOVE THIS!) and I felt it just needed some inky edges on the paper.
The topper was part of one of the decoupage packs - Me to You with Love... absolutely perfect for any occasion really, and the glittering on the images is just perfect for a bit of glitz!
I inked up the edges first with Artiste ink. This was done with dye inks in Chocolate and Black, then scratched around the edges with a craft knife. Yes.. it was a blunt one. I'm really not safe with a sharp one.. lol.
The ribbon was created with raffia, which is a perfect combination to the kraft card. I made a raffia bow, then took some bakers twine and created another little triple bow, cut the ends and fastened it to a button.
This little card was a very very popular one at my recent demo's.
It is literally around 5cm wide with a little topper stuck to the top. The topper is from the card kit and just simply mounted onto a scallop circle die cut from kraft.
See the glittering on the heart? Just perfect! The raffia this time was knotted a few times, then threaded through the button.
I hope you like these cards... something a little different from my ordinary style.
Happy Crafting everyone!!!
