I've been on a mission lately to use the supplies that I have on hand. I happened upon a new challenge called Card Patterns and decided to give it a whirl.
And so the pattern . . .
I find with sketches it is all in the interpretation. The toughest part for me on this one was that swirly black border under the ribbon. Here is what I came up with for my design:
My "black swirls" ended up being Staz-on stamped on a piece of clear acetate. I had some Staz-on in other colors, but I thought the black would really make things pop and add a bit of elegance. All supplies are Stampin' Up except for the acetate piece that I had leftover in my stash.
The card would be great to give to someone who has learned they are expecting. It's a cute stamp. I definitely want to try stamping on the clear sheets with a scrapbook layout in the near future. It's a great look!
