I bought this craft book last year in Florida and it just has the best ideas in it! It's from this book that I got the idea to add all of those fancy ribbons to the side of this card. I tied a length of Divine Twine - Cherry 10 yards to the side of the card. (BTW, this is a side folded card, that's why I couldn't get it to stand up straight.) To that, I added 1/2" Ivory Woven Burlap Ribbon, 5/8" Antique Gold Satin Scalloped Edge Ribbon, 5/8" Ivory Satin Scalloped Edge Ribbon, 5/8" Natural Crochet Ribbon, Basque Red Vintage Seam Binding , 1/4" Antique Gold Satin Center Band Ribbon, 1/4" Burgundy Satin Center Band Ribbon, White Hemp Cord, Silver Colored Wire String and 1/8" Curly Sparkling White Trim all from the Ribbon Carousel. This would actually look great as a cover for a mini-scrapbook album...hmm...I may convert it. :) I did also add some 'Ewen'Style' goodness as well, the Zva Creative flourish, some stars covered in German glass glitter and some White Opal liquid pearls.
Wanna play along with the Ribbon Carousel's challenge and have the chance to win a prize? Read on:
We'd love for you to join us this week! Here are the details:
- Make your NEW creation following the ribbon carousel challenge of the week. Any submissions made prior to the challenge date will be deleted. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.
- Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like Splitcoast Stampers, (use the keyword RCC64) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! (A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!)
- Link up your creation using the Inlinkz button at the bottom of this post. Your image may take a little while to pop up, but don't worry, it will appear shortly.
- Come back the Friday after the challenge ends to see if YOU are a Top Spool!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your day!
