Before I start my post today, I would like to offer a big welcome to my latest follower, 1cardcreator. Thank you so much for choosing to follow me!
Today I have two cards which I made for this month's Design Team project for Fantastic Ribbons - we were asked to make a card/project where we have sewn the ribbons. I had these colours to work with (very Spring/Summer) and I chose to go for fun, colourful designs.
For the first card I went OTT with the ribbons - sewing a running stitch through the orange ribbon and then gathering to form a ruched effect. With the yellow, I just stitched at intervals to overlap the ribbon lengthways.
I used papers from my stash and also stitched around the edge of the bottom layer.
I used the same ribbons for the second card - the pink ribbon is already stitched: although you can't see it, I sewed the little banners along the width of the card and then covered with the pink ribbon. I made the flower with the little bits left over, sewing them together in the middle.
That's it from me for today Friends, thank you so much for stopping by! Why not visit Fantastic Ribbons for a wonderful selection of ribbons, lace, Washi Tape and buttons?
Love and Hugs,
