Trav's Card Style with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:} 

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I'm sharing a quick start-to-finish card with you!! This card and video are quick today because...

  1. Trav and I leave for a trip to Israel in less than 24 hours!!!!! HOOOOORAY:)
  2. I ran out of time!
  3. Trav kind of challenged me in our interview video (HERE)-- he said if I ever tried "his" card style/design than the video would be quick! That's exactly what I needed since I haven't even packed for our trip yet!!! LOL!  
So I tried Trav's Card Style-- also known as "Stamp Ribbon Done". I think this card turned out super cute.... but I want to add sooooooooo much more! LOL! 

I actually think that I might start a NEW feature here on the VS blog using Trav's Card Style as my inspiration/design! LOL! 

Here's the video:

What a darling card! I just love your videos - you always have a smile in your voice! I think you're on to something with "stamp, ribbon, done!" Hope you have a fabulous trip!

A+++ in following *almost* Trav's advice: you've stamped and 'ribboned' beautifully with this card, and the patterned paper edges and wee heart - we'll just call those special touch embellishments! Stunning card - and yes, it does deserve to be heading to a publication challenge! Love it x a zillion!! Enjoy your trip!! Hugs~c

Sav, this is SOOOO pretty!!! I LOVE it!! The gold embossing, accented by the gold thread is gorgeous! That's really all that was needed!! Trav must be right...ribbon, stamp, DONE!!!

Lovely card! The gold embossing and the golden thread is so beautiful. Have a great time on your trip to Israel! The weather here is awesome right now :-)

Mary-Anne V said...

Wow your hubby has a great crafty side...this is an awesome card. I love the diagonal strips on the bottom and the gold accents.

Samantha Mann said...

Oh I think this card is amazing!!!! You and Travis are so cute together!! I love it!!! And his style of crafting is hilarious!!! Sound simple...but like you said, there are so many questions!! Ha! The gold string and embossing is so stunning!! Love love love love this!!!

Oh Savannah, you're going to LOVE Israel! When I went in 2000, it felt like I was "home!" It was the strangest thing. The Bible just came alive to me and it will to you, too! Every stop we made I picked up something, like dirt, stones, and even water (Red Sea, Jordan river, Med Sea, Dead Se). I brought Ziploc baggies and small containers for the liquids.

Have a wonderful time!
