Steampunk and Seam Binding Thank You Cards
Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge: Looky What I Got for Christmas!
Hello Ribbon Lovers! Who loves Steampunk and Seam Binding? I do, I do! And that’s why I created a couple of steampunk and seam binding thank you cards for the latest challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon. It’s time for first challenge of 2016 where we all share our new Christmas goodies with you all. I was a very good girl in 2015. Well, I was good. Well, mostly good. OK…I tried real hard to be good, and that must have done the trick because Santa brought me the new Steampunk Debutante papers from Graphic 45 along with some fabby seam binding from RRR.
Oh, I had fun making this one! I used one of the chipboard die cuts to make a frame over my steampunk lady and then filled it with a combination of Glossy Accents and copper mica chips. I really wanted to pick up on the teal tones in the paper collection, so I combined two gorgeous shades of seam binding in my bow. Noble Peacock is the darker shade, and Peacock Alley is the lighter shade. They look amazing together, especially when topped with a natural burlap string bow.
My sentiment is held in place with copper brads. And nothing looks better with copper than teal. So I created a wreath of butterflies and teeny tiny teal roses and a Petaloo stem. You can see the embedded mica chip fragments a little better in this photo.
For this Steampunk and Seam Binding Card, I stitched the designer paper to burlap and then added my fussy cut Steampunk lady with foam dots. The Noble Peacock Seam Binding bow is simple, and that’s just what I wanted on this card. It adds a beautiful pop of color, but doesn’t compete with the card itself.
Now it’s your turn! We want to see what YOU got for Christmas! Link up your project over on the RRR BLOG and we’ll be popping by to take a peek!
Oh, and Happy New Year, too!
