PPA Challenge - Velvet

Over at Pals Paper Arts, the challenge this week is to use this photo as inspiration. The girl in the photo has a dress made of various fibers.  I selected some ribbons and scraps of velvet from a discontinued fabric sample book.  I sewed them together and used as a base for my ornament.

The outline of the ornament is cut on gold Stampin' Up! cardstock on my Cricut using SCAL software.  The gold paper is in the accessories section of the SU catalog behind all their regular color groups.  It really adds a lot to cards particularly at the holidays. It comes in silver also.

I didn't have a spruce like greenery stamp so I used one from Hero Arts that is meant to go with one of their ornament stamps.

I'm really delighted with how this card came out.  I may do some others in this arrangement using paper rather than fabric to reduce the bulk.

Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients:  Stamps: Magic of Christmas by Hero Arts; Come to Bethlehem by Stampin' Up! (greeting)
Ink:  Not Quite Navy, Garden Green
Cardstock:  Gold, Night of Navy
