Love and Happiness

Hi everyone! It’s Sunday, and boy how the weekend flies by. I’m excited because I’m in Raleigh and will get a chance to stop by Archiver’s briefly. I’ll definitely get some of their pre-scored cards/envelopes because they are just irresistable.

This card is using Loonie Stamper’s Color Challenge. Obviously, I’m all into this double-ribbon design I’ve started. But, isn’t it just so nice to see all of that ribbon? I really like incorporating ribbon into my designs, so why not two?!

To create this card:

  1. Trim cardstock to 11″ x 4.25″, then score at 5.5″.
  2. Trim purple cardstock to about 3.25″ x 4.5″, then corner round the edges.
  3. Stamp sentiment on vanilla cardstock.
  4. Tie two ribbons into a knot around purple cardstock.
  5. Add vintage brad to the ribbon.
  6. Pop purple cardstock off of the card base.
