My sister in law, Kelli just earned her black belt. She has worked so hard to accomplish this..years of training. (Now Kelli is a tiny little thing. If she weighs 100 pounds i would be very surprised. but she had always had this amazing upper body strength! When we all get together to make homemade raviollis, she's in charge of making the dough! and we make lots of dough! )
I wanted to make a little something for her to let her know how proud we are of her. I also wanted to keep it simple. I knew that i wanted to add a belt to this card and wanted that to be the main image on the card.
I stamped white paper with versa mark and then heat embossed it with black ep. used my ticket corner punch, added some brads on each corner. I stamped Congratulations on white paper with black ink, and then framed it with black cs. I tied black ribbon around the band, secured the ribbon with 2 black flower brads and used 2 jewelry charms for the belt buckle and looped the black ribbon through it. It's very simple, but i know that she will get a kick out of this when she receives it!
Thanks for visiting!
