The Ribbon Girl - October Card Challenge


It's time for another Ribbon Girls card challenge today. Don't forget you can enter with any design as long as it takes the form of a card. You can find details of the prizes at the end of this post.

As you know I don't make a whole lot of fancy cards lately, my style seems to have permanently drifted over to CAS in the main, but when I do I like to play around making cards without stamped and coloured images.

Today is no exception to that and I've used some beautiful papers, chipboard, flowers, beads and embellishments to create a pretty card that could be used for a wedding, engagement, anniversary or Valentine's day.

I distressed the edges of my papers with a blade, adhering and cut a frame from the pink paper using 2 circle dies. I glued my papers to my card base and popped the circle frame up with some foam tape.

I wanted my chipboard heart to stand out against my paper, so I sponged it with Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick. These inks are great for colouring chipboard. I then sprayed it lightly with some Gold Glimmer Mist and left it to dry before gluing it inside my circle frame.

I made a triple bow with my pink ribbon and arranged that and a mixture of flowers, leaves, berries and sprays on my card, around my frame, gluing them all in place with my glue gun.

I finished with a mix of flat back pearls.

All items used (apart from Dies and Ink) are from The Ribbon Girl and are listed below with links to the items in the shop.
