I don't know this maybe because I made this card. But everyone who takes a look at the picture of cards where I have used my own dyed paper and have given it a distressed look with faux stitching, asks "What kind of fabric is this?" "Where did you get such thin leather from?" And I am like WHAT?! Hey?! I still have no clue as to why people think that this is fabric or leather. Can I get away with "Faux-Fabric" or "Faux-Leather"? LOL
Even my dad said that it looks like leather when he saw the complete "Circular Design" card. Hmmm, it must really look something like it then. Anyway, let me know so I get my eyes checked again :-p
Again I tried to do something different with the ribbon. Could not find "orange" gem to stick on the ribbon :-( otherwise I would have added that to the ribbon.
The small flowers are REALLY very small! LOL I drew them on the self dyed orange paper and when I was cutting them I realized they were rather "too" small, hence the untidy cutting :-( But after the placement they looked cute :o)
I made the swirls using embossing cone and applied some embossing paste in the middle of the flowers and sprinkled very little orange/rust glitter on it.
I have also dyed the brown paper myself, this is the same left over paper from the circular design card. I just did not want to throw away the pieces. Faux stitching always looks good on it. Especially with a gold pen.
