I love these patterns, and I have wanted to use them for a while but I didn't have the right idea for them until today. These are Jillibean Soup patterns, and I love how graphic and bright they are. I decided to use a kraft base, and since I can never leave well enough alone I decided to round all of the corners on all papers and ink the edges with brown.
I embossed the sentiment on a small piece of kraft, banner cut the end, and inked the edges of this piece as well. I had chosen this lovely piece of green seam binding to coordinate and was just going to put that around the middle, but felt it was not enough, so I added some kraft washi tape with printed text underneath the ribbon. I added the sentiment with some foam tape, and adhered some coordinating Prima flowers with Zots.
I still felt as though something was missing so I added some different sized self-adhesive pearls, and placed them as if they were sprinkled over the sentiment. Lately that is one of my favourite things to do. :)
For the inside of the card I corner rounded some leftover scraps, inked them in the same brown ink, and embossed the matching sentiment in the same white.
I really love how this card turned out and I hope my friend I had in mind while making it will enjoy receiving it!
