Friday

Simple Gratitude



Hello again and happy Friday to you! How about a down and dirty, quick and simple card today? This gratitude card was put together for a swap with my upline and sidelines recently. The main flower panel was stamped with the flower sprig stamp from Embrace Life in Basic Black ink on Rose Red cardstock. The flowers were bleached out using the liquid from a bleach pen and painted on with a small paintbrush. White grosgrain ribbon was knotted around the main panel, then it was mounted on Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. This was adhered to my Rose Red cardbase. I punched 4 white circles from my 1/8 hole punch to make faux brads and glued them into the corners. The gratitude sentiment from Define Your Life was stamped in the lower right corner in Basic Black ink. I softened the edges by sponging on some Craft White ink on the cardbase.
I hope that you have a great day and a most enjoyable weekend! Come back soon...

Great card! I like the faux brad idea. Never thought of that. Also like the softening of the edges w/ the white craft ink.
