Card Inspiration Part 1: Modifying Another Card

Where do you get your inspiration? There are lots of places of course.  One way is to simply modify someone else's design.  And one of the benefits of being a demonstrator is that I have hundreds of trade cards to use as samples.

Well here is one idea for you.  I designed this card for the April Stamp-a-Stack.  It was designed because one of my stampers said she liked "white-on-white" (thanks Barb). This was the result.

The top and bottom are 2 separate pieces, each  4.25 x 2.75.  The top was embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and the bottom was embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  These pieces were glued to the card face. 

We made looped the ribbon back and forth on a separate strip of paper. The flower layers were made with the Boho Blossom punch and attached to the ribbon strip with a brad. HINT:  the only way to get a hole through the brad was to use the Crop-a-Dile. A paper piercer or needle did not make an effective hole through the satin ribbon.

The tag was stamped with words from the Tiny Tags stamp set and punched with the Tiny Tags punch.

I did make some other colors of ribbon available and these are some of the other cards the ladies came up with.

Check back tomorrow for more ideas for where to find inspiration

Happy Stamping
