Sketches! Challenge #107

Welcome to Wednesday! This week at Sketches! it is a recipe challenge. The recipe this month is to use Staples, Stamps and Stitching (real or faux). With the recipe challenge you can choose to use it on a card or a layout, and this month I chose a card.
Here is what I came up with:

This card was super simple - I ran the red bazzill through the Cuttlebug with the raised inside of the folder inked with white Colorbox ink. I then stapled on the ribbon and adhered the red card to the dark brown cardstock. Once in place I used a ruler to mark on the white Signo pen for stitching, and stamped the adore stamp twice - once with brown ink and once with red ink. I circle punched the brown stamped image, and cut the top and bottom of the circle from the red stamped image and layered it over the top. A large scallop circle punched from some red card finished with some white Signo stitching, and attached to the ribbon via a paper clip.

  1. Love your colour combo! This is a really cool card!
    I've tried inking up my ebossing folders but maybe I've been inking the wrong side becoz it never looks any good. xx


Thank you for taking the time to share a thought with me.
