Suspension Card

Oooh, easy and fun. I like those two things together. Today's technique to try, a suspension card, was cool. Imagine that, "suspension" and "cool" in the same sentence.
I needed a card for a colleague whose wife had a baby recently, so I decided this design would fit nicely. Beate's tutorial is clearly written, and the materials are more common than one would think.
Size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches
Paper: SU! Brilliant Blue, SU! Creamy Caramel, and SU! Tickles patterned paper
Ink: SU! Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Going Gray, and Ballet Blue markers; SU! Blue Bayou dye ink
Embellishments: SU! Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, American Crafts blue grosgrain ribbon, Spare Parts gray brad
Punches: 1 1/4 and 1 1/8 circle punches
Also needed: dental floss, strong double-sided tape
Stamps: SU! Riveting and Little Layers Plus
