Basic Gray Brad folded around as ribbon slider. You can cut off the ends with wire cutter, but I like the look of it, Or just skip it all together.
I think the only thing that needs explaining here may be the flowers hugging the ribbon. I marked the ribbon placement lightly with a pencil, then, I simply cut around everything in the way then inked the cut areas to hide the white edges.
I inked all over to add an antiqued look. The frame was made using a rectangle mat first, added the sentiment, then tucking the punched pieces along the side, and adding 4 cut triangles of the same card stock for the corners.
Inking note: When using the ink for antiquing I use a damp baby wipe to blend when it looks over patterned, or blotchy.
I adore this card, I am happy with how it turned out.
I hope it inspires you, please comment!
