Red & White Card

I'm here with another card! I'd like to tell you a little about my style...I like simpler cards because I actually like to post them to people. When there is too much stuff on them they are too thick unless I put them in a box first and by then it costs a fortune to post 

I also like to use lots of papers and accents that I print from my computer. I use lots of digital scrap kit and papers.

The card above came about as a theme for a card swap I belong to here in the UK. It was a crimson/red/pink theme. It all started with the red gingham ribbon and went from there. I made the big bow from 3 ribbons, 2 buttons stacked and white thread.

White card base from The Paper Mill
Red generic cardstock
Flower and Dotted papers designed by me in Photoshop, printed with Epsom printer.
Gingham ribbon was free gift in a crafting magazine.
All other ribbons from Ribbon Oasis
3 mini sentiment clear stamps by MSE (My Sentiments Exactly)
red ink
white embroidery thread.
