A Cure Must Be Found

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I made a card that I'd like to dedicate to everyone (women and men) who have ever gone through breast cancer, as well as the families who helped support them. The image is an older set from Doodle Pantry called I Will Survive.

I used a spray of ribbons cut file from the Silhouette online store for the base of this card. Before cutting, I created a blue gradient fill for the entire card, and then brought the PRE-COLORED image into my Silhouette Cameo software, as well as the sentiment (both from the I Will Survive set). I then did a print and cut. To make the ribbons show white at all times (representing clouds in the sky), I adhered a piece of white card stock behind the front layer. Here is what the entire set looks like:

Laurie also has two really awesome ribbon sets (Special Ribbons and the brand new Special Ribbons Additions). You should really check them out. They are for honoring those with all different illnesses.

Also, there are still two days left for you to take advantage of the SALE going on at Doodle Pantry. Today you can get 25% off your order using coupon code DAY3TAKE25 or tomorrow, you can get 20% off your order using coupon code DAY4TAKE20.
