Another card for the Venture Club and Stack Parties.
You might have noticed that I used Always Artichoke ink for the string of the ornament even though there is Old Olive in the Designer Series Paper and the scalloped trim. Normally I wouldn't do this because it isn't a perfect match. But when you are preparing cards for a Stack party, it is best not to "share" inks between the various cards. So, I needed to use a different green. Gold didn't seem to show up very well and I didn't like it in red for some reason. So Always Artichoke it stayed.
By the way, you know that vertical gold strip? Those were made from pieces of card stock I had saved and had been sitting in my pile for a very long time. Those little pieces do come in handy eventually!
Oops. I just realized that I forgot to take a picture of the card after it was altered. On the completed card I added a scalloped border in Old Olive card stock across the card (5 1/2" length); on top of the red, gold and white card stock. I used the Dotted Scalloped Ribbon Border Punch. It just seemed to finish off the card. You'll have to use your imagination to visualize it. :)
