PPA 117 - Clean and Simple - Ribbon!


Pals Paper Arts challenge this week is Clean and Simple using ribbon. You can use any type of ribbon you like, or you can make your paper act/look like ribbon! How creative can you get?

I chose to use a ribbon I've had for months! I don't believe I have used it before. I wanted to make something really different, and I do believe I achieved that with this card. You will not believe how quick and easy it was!

Card Base: Whisper White card stock, standard finished size 4-1/2 x 5-1/2."
Inset: Crumb Cake card stock cut to 4-1/2 x 3-1/2" and embossed with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder in the Big Shot.
Stem: Lucky Limeade card stock cut to from a piece embossed with Stripes embossing folder in the Big Shot.
Flower: Punch petals with 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch from Peach Parfait card stock. For middle of flower, use a 1-1/4" circle punch (any color card stock). Cover with Sticky Strip. Pull off red backing from Sticky Strip. Start in the middle and use Blue Denim Jean ribbon to twirl and stick tape down, moving in a circular motion until your circle is covered.


Leaves: Tie a knot in a small piece of Blue Denim Jean ribbon. Adhere to stem using Mini Glue Dot.

Sentiment: Stamp sentiment from Party This Way stamp set using Night of Navy classic ink onto Whisper White card stock. Use Word Window punch to punch out sentiment. Adhere using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Wasn't that EASY? Clean and Simple, too!
