I adhered the checkered patterned paper to the backside of the paper and then matted it on a piece of sage card stock and stitched around the perimeter with vanilla thread to give the black a bit of POP. I layered the sentiment over the stem of the flower and popped it up on dimensionals.
I used some of the same October Afternoon patterned paper I used yesterday, but this time I added some fun "vintage" ribbon. The gingham ribbon was black and white, but I used my Copic E51 to dye it to match. Love that.
I added a row of pierced holes along the bottom because it needed something there. I didn't use a template. I just pierced inside each square as to not throw off the checkered pattern (hello OCD).
Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow with a Pure Innocence card. I'm goin' back to cutesy. I couldn't stay away THAT long. I need to coo ya know?
