Hi folks! I have always wanted to do something like this where I have TEXT as the “focal point/part” of my card. As I don’t have such stamps, I decided to print out the darn text! LOL I think it came out fine, the font could’ve been a size smaller but what the hey!
So here is my card… and there is one thing to note in this card… my FAUX BRADS. I made the faux brads the same way we make flower centers… by embossing the circle… but in this case I used a flat tip as I didn't want a dome shape but a flat top like those of regular metal brads.
Don't mind the cats in the background… they kept bumping the card with their head! Hence the weird positioning of the card!
I used a metallic gold paper for the FAUX BRADS and the pattern paper is a freebie that I printed on “fast normal”. I made the scalloped green part using a compass :o) Applause Applause! LOL
As you can see the pattern paper is kinda dull so to pop up the card and give it a bit more colour and bling, I added three different ribbons. The flower and swirls as always are handmade.
I used a lot of distressing because the ovals in the middle are not drawn using stencils or templates, I don’t have those. These are freehand drawn ovals and I really didnt want people to notice how irregular they were… distressing saved me from that. For next time I think I will print them out too! My printer is my best friend from now onwards.
Here is the inside. Not a good pic, sorry!
Have a good day!
P.S. This was one heavy card!
