Ribbon Frame Technique


Here is a card that I made for today's Ribbon Frame Challenge. You can find some great directions here. Claire did a really good job of giving instuctions for this technique. I just found this ribbon on Saturday at Michaels--on clearance for a $1!! I matches perfectly with Tangerine Tando and I just had to use it today!! What a perfect technique challenge to show off my baragin!! Today I used Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, and Choc. Chip for my colors. The stamped image is from Thoughts and Prayers by Stampin'Up! and the sentiment is from VERVE. I love this tree--I hope you do not get tired of seeing it!! I colored each of the leaves with my marker (an idea that I got from my good friend Teresa Kline) after I stamped it in Choc. chip. It is much easier that trying to color the leaves a different color on the stamp. Plus, I really like the two colors coming together. The sentiment on the card is from VERVE stamps and was punched out using a window punch. I had to had cut the layer--there is a punch I wish Stampin'Up! would make--a layer for the windo punch!! Maybe I will suggest it!! I know I would buy it how about you???
