I had a request from a friend for a Bollywood style Wedding card. I started out with lots of bling but it just did not come together like that. I admit I spent hours playing with ribbon and I must have made these swirls a half dozen times, with shimmery paper and without, with spritz, then with glitter and finally with a nice thin coat of Mod Podge.
I have to admit, I was not fond of working with satin ribbon. I ended up making two little bow ties and using my glue gun to hold them together. I topped it with this beautiful brad. I added the sentiment, which has some foam tape underneath to hold up the middle. I finished with somehalf pearls and crystal gems.
Supplies: Natural white and brown card stock, Designer Paper – Authentique, TPC – Congratulations, K&Company brad, satin ribbon, Sizzex die cut, misc pearls and gems.
The card was happily received :) even without a while lot of glitter and glitz.
