#GDP082 and Ribbon of Courage

The Global Design Project #082 is a sketch this week.  I decided to play along.

I just got back from OnStage in Savannah.  One of our all attendee free sets was Patty Bennett's million dollar sales set Ribbon of Courage.  I made this card for Mike.  He is starting chemo today.  My prayers go out to you Mike.

Ribbon of Courage

  • Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.
  • Use the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack (on the Retiring List).  The dots sheet is 1 1/2 x 5 1/4.  The diagonal stripe measures 2 1/2 x 5 1/4.
  • A strip of Copper Foil 1/2 x 5 1/4 was attached to the side of the dots paper.
  • The word courage is stamped on Whisper White card stock in Versamark and embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.  Use that Embossing Buddy first to keep away stray powder.  Heat with your Heat Tool and then cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies.  Cut a copper oval the next size up with the same framelits.  Adhere the two together and add dimensionals.  Before sticking this to the card, add some Copper Thread sticking out from the back.

The thread is a little hard to see in my picture.  Finish off with a bow made from the 1/4" Copper Trim.  I borrowed that from a project we made at OnStage.

Here's the inside of the card.  This sentiment is also from Ribbon of Courage.
