his easy card is a birthday wish that will work for just about anyone. Switch up the DSP and colors and this versatile layout can be used over and over again.
Lost Lagoon: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Basic Black: 5" x 3 3/4"
Whisper White: 1 3/4" x 3 5/8"
DSP: 3" x 3 5/8"
Black Stitched Satin ribbon: 5"
Stamp the greeting on the Whisper White cardstock using Lost Lagoon ink.
Tip: Use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get the image lined up straight.
Adhere the stamped piece to the Basic Black mat leaving the same amount of black showing on the sides and across the top.
Adhere the DSP to the lower part of the black cardstock, again leaving the same amount of black showing on the sides and the bottom.
Note: there likely is a gap between the white and the DSP - you will cover this with ribbon.
Lay the black ribbon over the division between the white cardstock and the DSP. Wrap the ends of the ribbon around to the back and tape them down.
Adhere the layered piece to the center of the Lost Lagoon card base.
