A 5 or 10

A 5 or 10 min. card that took me forever, AND made quite a mess. LOL

We had bought a really cute gift card for Danny's mom a while back that I fell in love with it, so I thought I would case it. Now I didn't take a photo of it, but it had a really simple embossed flourish border on it with a ribbon down the side with a beautiful heart charm, and a scroll type sentiment in the centre.
That being said, I had a sm. jar of flocking, bought when or where?... I don't remember, and thought I would give it a try...... I mean this was a simple design right?

It turned out taking me forever to finish and it really dosen't look anything like the inspiration card, but I am pleased as punch at the end result.
First I stamped the card front with my Palette stamp & stick glue pad, dumped the flocking on and hoped for the best. LOL
I think I over loaded the glue when I refilled the pad because I had one super sticky mess on my hands, desk, cs...........well everywhere, but I'm thinking because of that the flocking clung REALLY well. ANYWOOOOOOOOOO, the sentiment is from a foam stamp that Is one line, but I broke it up to fit the card front. I added the ribbon across the bottom instead of down the side like on the inspiration card, and replaced the heart charm with a broken earring with no mate that I found in my jewellery box.
I really like the christmas cards I did with the matching flaps, so I stamped this one also with black StazOn.

The stamp was purchased at the 2007 London Scrapbook Expo, but I can't remember from which booth, and it has no co. stamp on it.
The ribbon is a scrap piece I had laying around.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by

I love, love, love what you did with the card and the envelope. I may have to CASE this one. The ribbon and the slide on it make it even more perfect. TFS.

Like it? I LOVE it, scrumptious elegance. The only time I have ever used flocking, there was more stuff on me than on the paper. I was well and truly flocked!!! :)
