I know it is Tuesday and I usually do Technique Tuesday but instead we are doing one of Laura’s Quick Tips! This is kind of a technique! It’s a great way to use less ribbon off the spool and possibly use those little scraps you have laying around!
This is a fairly simple card to create. The fabulous colors, designer series paper, and fun greeting make it amazing! To create a bit of texture, I added in the ribbon!!!
I started with a Whisper White card base and layered on a piece of the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper! Next, I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting and fun corner images with Stamparatus. These images are from the Amazing Life Stamp Set (retiring soon). The Stamparatus makes those corner images fit perfectly into place. Using the Poppy Parade Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored in the word Cake! I love how it makes it POP!
One the images were stamped, I layered it onto a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock and flipped it over to add ribbon! Rather than adding one long strip of ribbon that starts at the top, loops across, back across, and comes out the bottom. It was over 12 inches of ribbon I would have needed. Instead, I laid the first piece down, secured it with Stampin’ Dimensionals and trimmed it off. Next, I cut a small loop and secured it to the other side with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I did this with another loop and another end piece. By only using small pieces of ribbon, I saved over 6 inches of ribbon. You could also use ribbon scraps that you have laying around!!
