The Hop to Stop, Take 2 ...

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and I created another card for The Hop to Stop. This hop is designed to raise awareness about Domestic Violence, which is an issue that impacts 1 in 4 women.


My card features the Rainbow of Ribbons Stamp Set from MHK Designs, one of the Hop Sponsors. To create my card I started by opening a Word document and pulling in the clear ribbon from the stamp set, adjusted it to size the I wanted, then copied and pasted the ribbon to create my background, added the sentiment to the page and hit print. I colored each of the ribbons with my Copic Markers and cut down my background to size, and layered it on my cardbase. Once the sentiment was cut down I applied distress ink around the edges and popped it on my card with 3D foam squares, and then added the enamel dots.

Let's check out all of the amazing Sponsor's participating to help bring awareness about Domestic Violence

Loved that you made your own background paper, and colored...it's nice when you can do this when you can't find the paper you need. Greaet job and the color combo looks great.
