Creating a background with Scalloped Linen Ribbon

Thursday 10 September 2020 Bridgwater, UK

I'm creating with my favourite Stampin Up! In Colour again! 

I just can't stop using Seaside Spray (I do try) but I naturally gravitate back to it. 

I had a good reason to use Seaside Spray again though - I've only got the Scalloped Linen Ribbon in this colour and I wanted the ribbon to be the main feature on my card.

I created this card with this sketch in mind. I've been thinking about using the ribbon as a background for a while so I created a panel of strips which I adhered to the card using double sided tape. 

It's not the type of ribbon you would use to tie a bow but it's ideal for adding to your card, or peeking out from underneath a sentiment.

I was recently set a task by my upline to create a sketch challenge for the local team of demos I am part of, so I quickly put this graphic together.

I stamps some leaves from the ever so popular Forever Fern stamp set in Seaside Spray and Crumb Cake. I chose Crumb Cake to tie in with the colours of the ribbon.

I used the Forever Flourishing dies, which perfectly die cut the leaves out. I don't mind fussy cutting but coordinating dies just make crafting so much easier!

I used the Layering Ovals dies to cut out the oval shapes. 

I dry embossed the scalloped oval using the Subtles embossing folder to give it some texture before adhering the white oval panel on top. I attached this to my card with some dimensionals before adding the die cut leaves.

I stamped the hello sentiment and punched it out with the Classic Label punch and then added the Scalloped Linen ribbon underneath. 

The final element is some Linen Thread, tied in a loose bow.
