Hi again. Today's project is one I made for Cathy, a lovely Diamond Stampers team member whose birthday was yesterday. Happy birthday again Cathy! I know Cathy has received her card, so I can safely show it to you now.
To make it, I inked up the heart flowers & stem (from 'Love Defined') with celery & rose red markers & added some cute punched flowers ('Itty Bitty Shapes') & basic pearls. Both the set & punches are new to the Summer Mini. Then, a first for me - I added some ruffled taffeta ribbon. I was happily surprised to see this is really simple to do & looks very effective I think. You can see it closer here:
If you'd like to try a bit of ruffling yourself, take some taffeta ribbon & pull one end until it starts to fray & expose the threads. Pull a centre thread & the ribbon will start to gather up. Push the gathers up the ribbon until you get the effect & length you want. Then, attach to your project with extra strong tape to hold it firm.
Oh & before I go, here's the inside of the card, which has some more flowers - this time with dry embossed centres.
Hope you liked today's card. If you have any questions about anything else, just drop me a line or leave a comment. Back soon with....
Inky wishes, Di
