First, my heart goes out to all those effected by the recent storms. You are in my prayers!!!
And now on to this card. It's been in my drafts for quite some time and finally I can share it. The quote is a stamp from Quietfire Design, you can find it HERE.
I took a "mop-up" piece of cardstock... translation - a piece of paper used to pick up extra color from a craft sheet while working on a project. This piece picked up excess from more than one project.
I decided on an area for my quote and stamped it with Archival Ink jet black.
Next I placed a Spellbinder's die over the paper, used a marked ruler to be sure the quote was straight and evenly spaced within the die, taped the die in place with removable tape and ran it through my Vagabond.
I tied a Distress Ink colored 4mm silk ribbon around the piece. My layers are cut from Core'dinations Adirondack cardstock and distressed with a sanding block. Four black, sticky-backed gems.
