Hello folks!! Wow what a busy start to 2012 I have had. I'm in the midst of making my DT cards for Joanna sheen so this will have to be brief. There is a great card challenge over on Scrapology - you have to 'Say it with Ribbons' and it's a 'Love is...' card. Just in time for Valentine's Day. The challenge is sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and the fab prize up for grabs is a set of 16 ribbons, like the ones used by the DT. Do hop over and be inspired by the wonderful DT creations.
I was lucky enough to be sent some gorgeous ribbon to use on my card. A beautiful rich shade of red... which just screamed out ribbon roses to me. I folded the ribbon over; stitched; slightly gathered; coiled and stitched in place x3 to create the 3 flowers. I embossed the black cardstock with my Cuttlebug and lightly rubbed on some silver metallic rub. I matted it with some silver mirri paper onto a black card.
I used my WRMK Sew Easy kit and the 'love' pricking head to prepare for my stitching. Some lovely polka dot ribbon towards the bottom and the die cut sprigs and swirls to finish the card off.
I was so proud of my little card (very different to my usual style I'm sure you will agree) that I showed hubby and told him it was his Valentine's card..... he promptly replied that it must be a Christmas Valentine's card. I looked at him blankly...... then he pointed out it has no L....Doh!
Ciao for now!Sandra x
