The Belli challenge for the next two weeks is to use anything that begins with an ‘R’. I had a great time going through my stash looking for supplies that would fit the bill. I ended up creating this card:
The Belli premise is to use old and possibly forgotten embellishments- I had fun with ric rac that I purchased a LONG time ago- from the Target $ spot…… I cut a piece to fit my card, and then cut another piece and wound it around itself to create the braided look that I sewed down over a red strip.
keep winding…it may want to twist a touch
I used an image from SU. The DSP is from My Minds Eye. I added RED cardstock (SU) with my blue sparkly ric rac braid. There is a layer of Soft Sky under that punched with the SU scalloped edge punch. I colored the image with Copics and used Polar White Flower Soft on the coat trim and the snow. The snowflake is punched in Soft Sky and acetate. I covered the acetate with Creative Inspirations Paint and added RED rhinestones in the center. Finally, I added RED thread in a Zig-Zag stitch around the edge of the card.
(HERE is a tutorial I wrote about sewing on cards.)
