Radical Ribbon

So I was sitting here designing the project for my next stampers club and had the idea I would combine our project with this week’s Pals Paper Arts Challenge. So my stampers following my blog will get a sneak peek of what they can expect next month (lucky them!!!).

This week we were asked to use ribbon as the element of style in your design. They had also mentioned keeping the project simple but once I got started I could not stop!!! I love Christmas and everything about it. I am not a huge fan of giving gift cards (as I LOVE to wrap presents) but when you are shopping for that person who has it all sometimes a gift card is just the thing. That does not mean you cannot “wrap” it though J

I choose to make a double pocket card, in the first pocket is a tag which adds a decorative element to your card and in the second pocket right behind the flower you slip in your gift card for that someone special.

My Challenge:

 Tiny Tips:
After finishing my card I really wanted to add a wee bit of sparkle so I gave it a spray with my vanilla shimmer smooch spritz from Stampin’ UP!. My tip for the week is when using your smooch spritz it is a good idea to hold it far away from your project as you spray if you hold it too close (as I did ooppss) it will cause your stamped image to run a little and your card stock will appear to have a wet look to it. We live and we learn J

Thanks for stopping by!
