The Sketch from Sketch Saturdays
Here is the Card I made. I took 3 different kinds of Ribbon. The fat White shimmery Organza, and the very shiny silver, and then another white shimmery organza with the wonderful lace like trim on both side of it. I then snailed them all together to make the one piece of fat ribbon going down the page.
I decided on Pink Pirouette, that wonderful shimmery silver (my very favorite paper ever I think), whisper white and Black for the colors. I choose to make the card a wedding card this time. I used Stamp sets SU She's All that, Voila' to Go Accessories, and the Double Heart and the double rings are UID (unidentified) hobby lobby stamps from way back when Marvin and I got married! I used them on our Christmas letter that year.
I embossed the Bride, Rings, and Bride and Groom stamps with shiny silver embossing powder.
I stamped the double Heart with Pretty in Pink, and then outlined it with my Silver Gel Pen.
The pink paper is all Su Pink Pirouette, distressed on the edges with Pretty in Pink, the Silver Paper is the Shimmery Silver heavy wt. Card stock you can get from SU. The other cards stock is just our high quality Whisper White, and Basic Black. I think that pretty much explains it. I love all the shimmer, and shine, and elegance the shimmer ribbon, and paper's add to the look! Not sure how much of that you can pick up though.
Just some close ups of the smaller details. You can see where I outlined the heart with my Silver Gel pen here. You can also see the distressing with the Pink ink around the edges of the CS. Here is the Vintage Bride, embossed in shiny silver. I think this set is just gorgeous! I love Vintage and Retro sets! Not that any woman is or should ever be that skinny though! I just took this picture to show you the 3 different ribbons I used. The silver does not show up true to form, but the other two you can see how delicate and shimmery they are.
