A panel of black card was die cut using the Mega Curved Rectangles Nestabilities die and embossed using the Cuttlebug Diamonds in the Rough embossing folder. The raised areas of the panel were coloured with a Versamark pen and silver shimmer chalks dabbed over the top from the Papermania Earth Tones set of shimmer chalks.
A panel of the burgundy geometric paper from the Papermania Red Hot Capsule Collection paper pad was punched using the XCut Diamonds border punch, then matted onto the burgundy and black card. A length of black grosgrain ribbon was then attached across the panel.
Black embroidery thread was knotted through a red button and added in the top right corner of the patterned paper panel.
The sentiment, from the Hero Arts Anytime Messages stamp set, was stamped using Versafine Crimson red archival pigment ink and the corners rounded using the small Avec corner rounder punch. This was matted onto the burgundy and black card and attached over the edge of the image panel.
