On to the card. This card is being submitted for this week's challenges at Hand Stamped Sentiments and Pals Paper Arts.
It's quite hard to see in the photo, but the dry-embossed layer was first stamped with various images from Established Elegance and Artistic Etchings in Crumb Cake ink. Then I ran it through the Big Shot, lightly sponged Crumb Cake ink over the raised portions and finally cut it into strips.
The seam binding flower was made by pulling a center thread in the ribbon to gather it and then rolling the ribbon into a flower shape and sticking down to some sticky strip. A pearl peeks out from the center of the flower.
Thanks for looking.
