My card today was inspired by the Studio Calico May Card Kit Camelot.
This kit was a box full of ideas and although it included many colorful elements, I opted for some of the more muted tones so the gold embellishments would stand out. Don’t you just love that herringbone vellum? It is so unique. I also used a sewing machine for the first time to stitch gold thread along the top of the champagne grosgrain ribbon that was included in the kit. I think it tied it all together (pun definitely intended).
I hope you enjoyed. Leave a comment below and check out the other submissions for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches #139 by Rita.
P.S. Here’s a little tip.
To prevent the grosgrain ribbon from fraying, I squeezed out a thin line of Ranger Multi Medium Matte on a craft sheet then dipped the ends of the ribbon. The edges keep their shape and you can’t even tell it’s there!
