Friday's card...

Hi and welcome to our last card of the week!

Here is todays sketch....



And this is the card to go with it...

First i ran a piece of green card measuring 10cm by14cm through the cuttlebug in the dotted embossing folder. And then i inked the edges.


I then cut a piece of white card to the size 7.5cm by 14.5cm. Then i used a corner punch to scallop the edges. I then inked the edge and drew a thin line just inside the edge of the scallop.
Then i cut out a piece of pattern paper to the size 5.5cm by 14.5cm. Then attached it to the white scalloped card and adhered to the green dotted card.

I then chose a contrasting colour pattern paper and cut out a strip of it to the size 14.5cm by1.5cm. I inked the edges...

And then tucked it under the edge of the righthand scallop.

Then using a circle cutter for the Cuttlebug i cut out the circles and then adhered to the card. I inked the edges before i stuck it down.


Then using two ribbons one bigger than others i adhered them to the card.

I then used all the supplies in the photo below. Layered them one on top of each other.


And stuck it onto the card.



Then using the same smaller ribbon as before tie and then attach the bow to the card.



I added a few gems to the scallops and then adhered the whole thing to a white card.
Then your card is complete.

I quite often leave my cards blank until i know what i am going to use them for, that way i have a card for any occasion.

Thanks for popping in everyday and seeing the sketches and the cards. Dont forget to make a comment on one of this weeks card post before you leave, to be put into the draw for all the supplies to make all the cards this week.

And then pop back tomorrow for this months competition with a prize.

That's a great idea to leave cards blank until you know what you need it for. A lovely collection of cards too - thanks! :o)
