The Elegance of Velvet

I love velvet ribbon. It adds such elegance to any project. Sometimes I start my designs with an image, sometimes with a particular paper that I want to use. Today's design started with this elegant and gorgeous 3/4" Burgundy Velvet ribbon from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Sharon carries a wide variety of colors and widths HERE. I wanted my card to look like a fancy wrapped package.

The Spellbinders Persian Motifs dies work well for the illusion of snowflakes. I chose a patterned paper to coordinate with the Burgundy ribbon -- Kaisercraft's Christmas Carol 6x6 pad. My sentiment, stamped in Memento's Rhubarb Stalk ink, comes from Just Rite's Christmas Vintage Labels Four stamp set. It was cut out using Spellbinder's Classic Circles dies. I added a few tiny Kaisercraft Pearl pearls as accents.

To finish, I added May Arts Gold Wired Beads and a pretty White Prima Le Mia flower for my "package's bow."

All linked supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Gorgeous card, thanks for playing at ClF. Unfortunately you don't qualify for a prize as there is no stamped image.
