Have you seen that Stampin’up is offering a FREE spool of Stitched Satin ribbon with every $50 order? I want to give you some ideas of how to use this free ribbon!!! I made two cards that are a bit similar and both use the Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon in 2 different ways… I used the Holiday Collection Framelits dies for both cards.
For the first one, I used the ribbon to create a border on my card. The best way to adhere your ribbon on the card is the Snail adhesive. It sticks very well and it doesn’t show through. For that card, I stamped the tree with the stamp from the Scentsational Season set. I embossed it with the Fancy Fan folder to give some texture and added some Dazzling Diamond glitters on the star and the tree. The greeting is from Word Play. I used the Stampin’ Markers to color it so I would have more than one color on it.
Stamp set: Word Play
CS and paper: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight.
Ink: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green Stampin’ Markers
Tools and punches: 2-1/2 in Circle punch, 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle, Big Shot, Holiday Collection Framelits dies, Fancy Fan embossing folder.
Accessories: Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin, sponge, Dazzling Diamond Glitters
For the second one, I used the Tree Framelit (from the Holiday Collection) to cut out the tree and then I used the ribbon to fill the “space” and create the branches. To adhere my ribbon, I used the snail adhesive all around the outside edges of the tree, on the back of my paper. The ribbon adds a really nice finish to this card! I cut the star in Champagne Glimmer paper (love that paper!) with the star framelit (also in the Holiday Collection Framelits). I used the Label Collection framelits dies to cut the shape around the tree. I added a little border made with the Polka Dot Parade DSP and the greeting is from a set in the Holiday mini-catalogue called Voeux Indémodables.
Stamp set: Voeux Indemodable
