Card for a friend...


I created this one to meet the following challenges: Created by Hand (inchies), Gothic Arch (create an ATC, Gothic style), Timeless Tuesday (use dimension...pop it up) and Secret Crafters (use three ribbons). I created an inchie envelope, then masked and stamped it with this design stamp from Quietfire. I accented the border and the tiny heart with Glitter Ritz Stardust Opaque Microfine glitter. I used Sookwang double sided tape on cardstock, then punched small hearts and covered them with Glitter Ritz Grasshopper Opaque Microfine glitter. I cut the Gothic arch from this beautiful classic Italian Portofino paper, edged it with Krylon 18 Kt Gold Leafing ink, then glued the inchie envelope and pop dotted the glittered hearts onto the arch. I attached the arch to a Cuttlebug embossed gatefold card, and wrapped a length of ecru double faced satin ribbon 'round the card.


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today. I hope YOU have some time to create something beautiful!

Hi, Deborah! Such a pretty card! I love the Italian patterned paper that you picked. And all the little details ... the ribbon, the texture, the inchie and envelope, the glitter hearts, and more. So beautiful! :-)
