I have a faux inky card to share. The inky background is a piece of faux inky card from the Walmart Momento 8x8 paper pad.
My background is from the Maja Designs Vintage Summer Collection. I won that paper pad in a prize draw from Maja...lucky me as it is gorgeous paper.
I stamped the Inkadinkadoo Meadows stamp with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut the image with the Sizzix Banner die. I used a snippet of Michael's purple 120 pound card for an off centered mat.
My NBUS item today is the Tutti Designs Happy Birthday Topper die which I cut from another snippet of the purple card. I really like the die, but it was very hard to cut it cleanly. I shimmed with two extra pieces of card and used wax paper as well. I still fought to get it out of the die.
The purple rayon ribbon is from a huge roll that my local paper craft store had on clearance a few years ago. The bow was made on it's own and I then glued it to a flat strip of the same ribbon that I'd wrapped round the base card. It seemed the easiest way to keep that ribbon from looking tattered. I find the rayon ribbon can look that way so easily if I handle it too much..
This is another card for the finished cards box. I never seem to have enough in there!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
