This is one of those incredibly useful cards that takes minutes to make and can be used for almost anyone on any occasion - male, female, birthday, thank you, get well, wedding, anniversary, notecard etc.
Here's how to make this card:
- Cut a 3" square piece of Patterns designer paper in Night of Navy.
- Apply Snail to a length of striped grosgrain ribbon and wrap it around the designer paper, securing at the back.
- Stamp the image in Night of Navy ink on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock and trim around it. Pierce the centre of the image and decorate with a brad from the Hodge Podge hardware kit. Apply dimensionals to the back of the image and attach to the designer paper panel.
- Fix the panel to a Very Vanilla card base using more dimensionals.
- You could add a sentiment centred below the focal panel if you wanted to.
Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Ink: Night of Navy
Card stock: Very Vanilla
Other: Patterns designer paper in Night of Navy, striped grosgrain ribbon in Night of Navy, brad from the Hodge Podge hardware kit
You may be wondering what the text on the paper says... well it's one of Shakespeare's sonnets - this one:
I never saw that you did painting need,And therefore to your fair no painting set;
I found, or thought I found, you did exceed
The barren tender of a poet's debt:
And therefore have I slept in your report,
That you yourself, being extant, well might show
How far a modern quill doth come too short,
Speaking of worth, what worth in you doth grow.
This silence for my sin you did impute,
Which shall be most my glory, being dumb;
For I impair not beauty being mute,
When others would give life, and bring a tomb.
There lives more life in one of your fair eyes
Than both your poets can in praise devise.
Isn't that beautiful?!
