Little changes

Ahhh, I finally got some cards made. It seems like it has been forever since I had work night. And even longer since I had work night where I got to work on my own stuff. LOL I recently got some new rubber, and to be honest with you, it felt sooo good to ink those babies up!!

Here is what I have to share today:

I wanted to show you how to take a basic layout and by making minor changes you can change the whole look of the card.

This was my first card. Stamped image, colored with markers, matted, and pop dotted. The edge of the card front was embossed using the Scor-pal, a little ribbon was was tied with a east/west knot and a sentiment was stamped to the card front.

(Gallon= white, quart=pink, pint= black)

Pretty much the same exact card- except here I used the black and white ribbon. And I added some green to the stems. (Gallon=white, quart=black, pint= pink)

So here is the same layout- but changed up a little more. Same stamp, matted and placed in the same location. But, this time I knotted (no ribbon tails this time) the wider ribbon, changed the sentiment and left the edge plain. (Gallon=white, quart=red, pint=black)
