this is a birthday card (obviously) for my older sister. red & black are such classic colors (and her wedding colors, now that i think about it...) and i wanted something clean & timeless.
i trimmed the patterned paper to size & wrapped the black ribbon and secured. i then stamped the sentiment in red on grey paper (scraps! yay!!!) and popped up on foam tape over the ribbon & embellished with pearls.
materials used: Lush Red Diamonds by My Mind's Eye double-sided cardstock, MS small pearls, Paper Smooches Chit Chat stamp set, Black Satin Ribbon
