So I have decided to try something new this week and take part in the Freshly Made (http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/) sketch challenge.
I was very lucky to recruit three new ladies this month with the fabulous promotion Stampin’ UP! offered (A FREE BIG SHOT or $125.00 IN PRODUCT – still time left offer good until October 31st). I thought it appropriate to make a “welcome” card for each of the lovely ladies in a style which I thought best suited them. This is the first card I came up with for my first new recruit.
I love using the seam binding ribbon that Stampin’ UP! sell but the one thing I find tricky from time to time is how easily it frays. This time I decided to use that to my advantage and add it as an element on my card. I rolled adhesive on the back side of the ribbon starting at the point where I wanted the fray to end and then pulled on one piece of thread to give it that wispy look.
Thanks for stopping by!
