Patterned Packages Tied Up With Strings
I made this card for the sketch challenge at Fab Friday. I have a bunch of pre-cut paper leftover from last week's Christmas Card Buffet, so I decided to put some of it to use. I used the paper that I had cut for this card as my starting point and then combined it with the sketch. I had to incorporate my favorite Patterns DSP, so I used some of the Pool Party striped paper from the In Color stack. I stamped the "happy birthday" from Sassy Salutations and then decided that the card needed a couple little presents off to the side. I realized that the presents in the Patterned Party set would work great, so I inked just one of the three presents with my Island Indigo and Wisteria Wonder markers. I separated the stamped image and the dsp with some Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon and then layered that panel onto Island Indigo and Pool Party card stock. I textured my Wisteria Wonder card base with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and then added the layered panels to finish the card.
