New Blue Ribbon Card Sketch

blue ribbon fathers day card
I was going through my card stash and ran across an old card that became the sketch inspiration for this Blue Ribbon card.  I made this card for my husband for father’s day.  Using the card design sketch and the color coach to choose a masculine palette this came together very quickly.

This is the card that acted as the design inspiration.  With the Blue Ribbon card I covered the front panel completely with the ‘best’ ribbon.  I also left the corners square on the tab for a more masculine effect.

The design of the blue ribbon makes it super easy to put together with coordinating punches.  And I’ve used this stamp set a lot for masculine cards this year.  It tends to lend itself to a masculine design.   You can see how I punched out this star burst in Early Espresso with the scallop punch here.
