What I've Learned From the Pros



Here's the card I came up with for my workshop on Thursday. I'm pretty happy with it! This card demonstrates something I've learned from the pros: It's the little details that take a card to the next level. On this card, I added a buckle to the ribbon instead of just a knot. I added a photo corner on the main image. I stamped the main image in Basic Brown on top of the VersaMark image to add emphasis. I added paper piercing to the photo corner and the upper right corner of the main image to tie into the dots on the patterned paper. If I wanted to take it up another level, I could add a background in the same color ink to the card base. I could add cardstock layers behind the 2 square images. I could use the ticket corner punch on the bottom layer of paper. You get the idea! Somethimes, it's just the little things!

For the main image, I stamped the image twice with VersaMark and sponged over it with Really Rust. Then I stamped the image again in Basic Brown. This layout is Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge # 20.

Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Stem Silhouettes; Paper: River Rock, Glossy White, Apple Cider designer paper; Ink: VersaMark, Basic Brown, Really Rust; Accessories: photo corner punch, crafters tool kit, Aged Copper Hodgepodge Hardware, Wild Wasabi double stitched ribbon, sponge

Love the card and you are right about the little things making the difference between a good card and a great card. Something I have been neglecting to do on my own cards lately. Thanks for the reminder.
