First off, I keep saying I'm not a card maker, blah, blah, blah, but for some reason I've sure had a few cards on here lately. And another one today! This one is for Kazan's sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I changed it up a but with the horizontal line, I put it as my ribbon, you can see below her sketch and then my card.Mine is pretty simple and plain, it's for a wedding, their colors are red, black and white, obviously....
The white "cardstock" is actually watercolor paper, I get huge poster sizes of watercolor paper and I love the effect it has because it's so raw and grainy... Anyway, I used that as the base because it's thick.
This red paper was some out of a 4th of July paper pack, I just cut it a 1/4 inch shorter all around and centered it on the water color paper.
The "A" is on regular white card stock, a 2x3 piece, I did the calligraphy myself and finally got it right after a few tries! A is the initial of their married last name. :) I put this white piece on another type of redish/blackish paper and rounded the corners after matting. This this wide ribbon was off of another card I got, I tucked it between the white and red paper and it is sheer enough to see the A underneath. The little chipboard on the right side was already black, I just glued it to the card, and tucked the ribbon under.
I also got my white gel pen out and traced around some of the corners of the chipboard. I think for not being a "card-maker" this one came out really good. I am proud of it.... and I hope they like it. :)
