PPA69: Elements of Style

This week's challenge was all about Element of Style: using ribbon or fabric in a card design.
I used this opportunity to reach back into the archives for a retired stamp set that I just loved. Bella Blossoms. The card designed was cased from one I saw a very long time ago from Mary Fish at Stampin' Pretty.  I used my element very differently for this challenge in that it is more of an accent than the star of my card, but I think it works perfectly with this card design, which is for a co-worker who suddenly lost her father. For these cards that will be signed my whole department, I always go bigger with 5x7 design.
  • 5x7 Card base in Whisper White
  • Two layers in Chocolate Chip and Nursery Suite DSP with corners punched with Scallop Trim corner punch
  • Using Big Shot and Scallop Oval die cut to create the base for the image
  • Image from Bella Blossoms is stamped two times in Baja Breeze, Marina Mist and Early Espresso
  • Using paper snipers, cut elements of the flower out and add to base image with Stampin' dimensionals
  • Sentiment from Because I Care, Hostess set is stamped in Baja Breeze on Whisper White
  • Using the small and big tag punch to create a layered label
  • Paper clip and Bashful blue taffeta ribbon make the final touches.
