I decided to use two different ribbons to create the look of a whimsical ocean-themed baby mobile!
I started off by taking a piece of white cardstock and die-cutting the circle with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles die. Then I used my MISTI to curve the sentiment from Hero Arts above the circle and stamped it with versamark. I also stamped the rest of the sentiment with versamark and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder.
Next I inked up the Hero Arts Waves background stamp with various shades of blue Hero Arts shadow ink and stamped it onto a piece of scrap cardstock. Then I stamped the Hero Arts whale and starfish onto white cardstock twice and fussy cut them. I used the second stamping to create a sandwich for the ribbon and string. I sandwiched the white iridescent string between the whale and starfish and adhered them to the top of the sentiment panel. Then I adhered a few pieces of the pearl string to the sentiment panel to give the feel of bubbles in the water.
To finish the card I adhered the wave background to the circular opening and then mounted the panel onto a top-folding A2 cardbase of white cardstock. The iridescent string really sparkles when it catches the light and it looks like water glinting in the sun!
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you enjoy the rest of our month collaborating with May Arts Ribbon!
