Just Add Ribbon

I did a Christmas Stamp A Stack for my sister last weekend and she’d asked for a card using the City of David stamp set.

Knowing my sister and her love of ribbon (not) I decided to make the card fairly plain as I also knew there were some first time stampers coming.

This is the card we made – well one of the three we made.

We’ve used Always Artichoke for the base card and mat behind the stamped image. The images were also stamped in Always Artichoke onto the Naturals and sponged around the edges again using the Always Artichoke.

I’ve cut a piece of the script designer series paper from the Holiday Harmony pack in the Spring Mini Catalogue.

I did explain to the guests that the sample did not have any ribbon as the hostess has a thing aobut ribbon – dont ask me why but it does make you wonder if we are really related!! Or maybe I just got her ‘love of ribbon’ gene!

I did take along a roll of the burgundy grosgrain and the Artichoke grosgrain so if the guests wanted to they could add some ribbon.

Here are two samples of how I added the ribbon to the card.

This first one was just wrapping the Artichoke Grosgrain around the top two layers and tying a flat knot in the centre.

The second one was tying a knot in the middle of the Burgundy grosgrain then wrapping it around the top layer. This is just one simple knot which you tie just tight enough to give you a flat triangle knot in your ribbon.

Now just on the Spring Mini Catalogue I just wanted to remind you that this mini finishes on 30th November so if there is anything in that catalogue you ‘need’ to ring and order soon before it expires. Some things you might like are …
