Pink Stripes Card

Scalloped stripes of pink card stock and lace-edged ribbon, with a paper flower, tiny pearls, and a large sentiment "So sweet."

The sentiment was computer-printed in deep rose-colored ink, using an outline version of "Brush Script Standard Medium" font. It was cut out freehand, leaving a white border, after coloring with RV02, RV06, and RV34 Copic markers and underlining with pink Copic multiliner (a dark rose color), and fl. pink Gelly Roll pen (bright pink).

The top and bottom strips of white ribbon were colored with Copic markers RV10 and RV02; the middle strip was left white. Three self-adhesive pearls (3 mm size) embellish each end of the white ribbon strip.

The flower is a 3/4" white paper Hero Arts flower, colored with RV10 Copic marker, and its center is a few threads of embroidery floss. The card stock, edged with Fiskars scallop scissors, is Papertrey Ink hibiscus burst (1" wide top stripe) and raspberry fizz (1" wide bottom stripe), on a white card base with its bottom corners rounded.
