Ribbon Squares

Today I cooked up a little number for you with the newest Verve release, Asian Flair, and this week's SCS Sketch Challenge. The how of the card is pretty straight forward. I cut nine 1.25" squares and then stamped 5 with the square stamp in Certainly Celery and then 4 in Soft Sky. Next I matted with black cardstock, added black dots to each of the corners of the squares and then lined the squares all up on a 4.5" square card base. Next I tied a little black grosgrain around the card and added another knotted bow on the other side for symmetry.

For the main panel, I stamped the sentiment in the center of a 2.5" x 2.25" square and then stamped the flower ribbon stamp below and the butterfly above.Next I stamped the flower and the butterfly again and popped them up, coloring with Soft Sky and Certainly Celery ink. I finished off with some dots around the panel and voila! A card was born!

Although I didn't look at the sample cards, I must have subconsciously remembered Jen's (designer of the sketch) original card, since my butterfly is almost in the exact same place and colored pretty similarly!

Be sure to check out all the new releases at Verve!
