Look, no stamping!

This is another card made for the same sketch challenge. It went a bit wrong but, as you know, there are no mistakes in rubber stamping. I cut the curve on the wrong edge of the Designer Series Paper – it was supposed to go the other way. But never mind, it works just as well this way. There is no stamping at all on this project – the image is just cut from a piece of Tea Party Paper. You can’t see too well on the photo but there are dots of Crystal Effects® on all the So Saffron circles on the image. I applied these with a cocktail stick – didn’t want to risk squeezing too much out in one go.

The ribbon is made from three pieces: one goes all round the card with the join at the front. The second is just a flat loop, with a third short piece wrapped around it. The two joins are at the back. I don’t like to see joins, as you’ve probably guessed.

The fancy edge is made with the Scallop Edge Punch and the Crop-A-Dile™
