2" wide ribbon
heat embossed background stamp
raw unpainted chipboard alphas
I have a great background stamp and some gold embossing powder, and the shape had to be square or round and the only square cards with envelopes I have are red so that narrowed things down a bit. I knew I had some wide ribbon but discovered that most of it was not wide enough and a few were too wide. I opted to cut down the too wide to the 2" requirement so I am now down to my last choice. I went in search of my chipboard and tried to think of how I would use it. I thought about a monogram - but for what or whom? Then I searched out letters and found that NOEL would fit so now I am ready to create. I also had a chipboard square that I thought went well with the design. I wanted to put something inside of it and had some real searching to do. After trying several things I discovered this little red cardinal on a circle. This worked perfectly and would also meet another challenge over at Shopping Our Stash who has a challenge to use an animal or bird on our card for this week.
Here is the sketch:
Not sure if I will get to more creating this weekend as it is Michael's birthday but if I do I'll be sure to post! Hope that you have enjoyed stopping by. Have a great weekend!
