Creative Card Crew: Ribbon Challenge
Good morning! It's time for another fun challenge from Creative Card Crew; this fortnight our sponsor is The Paper Shelter and the challenge is to use ribbon on your card. Sounds fun, right?!
The Paper Shelter gave me this adorable image to use...it's pre-colored! I had the option of coloring myself, but the colors/coloring was amazing! I simply printed the image, distressed the edges, matted it and adhered it to my card. I added brads to three corners and a "ribbon blossom" to the other.
Have you ever made a "ribbon blossom"? I never had, but I remembered seeing them in the past and thought it would be something fun to try other than just using a standard ribbon treatment. I Googled and did a bit of research before trying mine. I have to tell you, at first it appeared I had a "ribbon sneeze"! Remember the dreaded "sticker sneeze" people used to refer to? I had so many ribbons that I lost track of what I was trying to do! LOL I remembered that I would need to trim the ribbons and after the second "haircut", I thought it was presentable. I was thankful for my old cosmetology skills! This was fun to make and I will probably try one again.
