I’ll admit that yesterday’s card followed the sketch pretty much, but it didn’t seem really clean and simple to me when it was all finished, so I went back to the figurative drawing board for my sample card for this challenge. I decided to use a lighter color scheme and less cardstock layers. I did, however, choose to layer two ribbons. In retrospect I probably should have done the two pieces of pear seam binding first, and then the narrow blue ribbon over both. But I suppose this looks all right. I used my Xyron to adhere the ribbons. What a timesaver that proved to be, rather than trying to use glue dots or my most narrow sticky tape. I briefly considered keeping my card a square like the sketch, but opted against it so I’d have more open space in which to stamp the sentiment. The focal panel is adhered with dimensional adhesive.
