Welcome to a week of ribbon love on my blog! I’m always being asked about ribbon, since I just *love* it so much, so I figured a week-long tribute to my favorite ways to use ribbon could be fun. Of course today’s also Sunday, so I’m also on deck for a CAS card…or a SVCAS card (Sandy’s version of CAS!).
This is a supersimple way to use up ribbon scraps…I always seem to cut mine too long when putting on a card, so once in a while I make a bunch of these to use the ends up. Depending on the width, you may need less or more ribbons (and smaller buttons), but the chevron (striped twill) is perfect with a 3some. The yellow textured cardstock on the blue corner-rounded card base gives the busy ribbons something to rest on. If your scraps are solid, you might try something with a little bit of pattern – likely monochromatic so it doesn’t bug out your eyes!
The baker’s twine and button colors alternate between the three colors…
This next one is a bonus card… The card has no ribbon. No Copics. Maybe that would still make it CAS? Hmm. Probably not. Though the color scheme goes nicely with the ribbon card above. It’s for Julie’s Bonus Sketch posted on S&S…she asked if anyone had time to do a sample, and since I had a NEEEED to go make something yesterday, I did! (It was that or go dig more weeds. I chose stamping!) I turned it upside down and put the shaped part at the top, and made banners from the strips. I did have to add the sentiment strip across it – you’re gonna laugh….because the banner pieces weren’t sticking to the embossing very well! Ha! Keep that in mind when you adhere things onto embossed paper, it can be a challenge to get things to stick. So I sewed that strip on…nothing’s going anywhere off this card! Stamps are all by Paper Smooches, see the linky down below to go shop for it.
Hope you’ll be back this week to enjoy some more ribbon love! Remember, I might just have some ribbon candy next weekend for a randomly selected commenter from the week
