I used Victorian Frippery from Waltzing Mouse to make the background of my card. I stamped the images with Versamart Ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I wanted a little shine on the card without using too much bling. I dry embossed my center panel and punched the edges. I was wondering after I made the card if that was even worth it, because you can barely see it under that huge ribbon! Haha! Oh well! It still looks good to me anyway! :)
The frame underneath the ribbon was made with my Cricut. I made a whole bunch of them with this very very thick cardstock. It's so thick it's almost like chipboard. I actually found it at my husband's local comic book store. They sell 100 sheets for $7. I've had them for a long time now and haven't even gotten through half of it! Anyway, I tied the ribbon twice to make it look big and tied the pearl button in the middle. I just love adding twine to ribbons. I think they add a lot of texture to what's already there.
I actually took the picture during the day hoping it would turn out beautifully. But it's a little gloomy out so I didn't get the full effect I wanted. Nevertheless, I still like the end result. Enjoy your Saturday everyone! I'll probably have some more cards out later on today. Thanks for stopping by!
