This is my card for my guest designer spot on the SCS CAS Design Team. Our challenge this week is to use folded or scrunchy ribbon. I had just made a card with scrunchy ribbon, so I opted for the folded technique.
My card base is ivory and I started by sponging around the edge of the card in crumb cake. Then I stamped my focal image in soft suede. I daubed on some pink ink onto the flowers of the image, and stamped and cut out the bird in the same pink. I stamped the sentiment in soft suede using my stamp-a-ma-jig, and adhered my bird using dimensionals. For the ribbon I didn’t have ribbon that matched so….I made my own. I started with ivory ribbon then sponged crumb cake ink directly onto the ribbon, then tattered rose, then crumb cake again. The result perfectly matched ribbon! :) I haven’t had a lot of practice with the folded ribbon technique so I took some time to get that down. Then I wanted to add a pearl brad so I adjusted my ribbon again. I don’t do a lot of “distressed” cards but this was fun. I will have to do more! If you have some time, come and play along with the CAS challenge this week. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
