Pretty ribbons

Todays card is in honour of my wonderful friends out there. To the lovely Sarah and Christine for their awards - thank you so much, I really do appreciate them. Also it's for a special little lady, I won't say who it is or it wouldn't be a surprise lol! I have great plans for this layout, I have done some in masculine tones and even a Christmas one (eek - I know!) but I am waiting for some red gingham ribbon to finish it off. I have used a masking technique on it, I stamped onto a post-it-note and then punched it out using the 1" circle punch and then over layed it and stamped again, covered it up and so on (hope that makes sense - it does in my brain but that doesn't mean much LOL).

I know, I know, some of you keen eyed ladies out there will tell me, I have used this post title before. But can you blame a girl, how many songs do you know with pretty ribbons in the title, c'mon I had to use it again, especially when there is a FANTASTIC OFFER OF FREE RIBBON from Stampin' Up! this month.

Love the purple & Kraft together Emma - looks fab! And how patient you must be - I'd have given up the stamping after about the 3rd.. ;)

Helen said...

What a fab card but you MASKED it??????? What patience!!! I'd have punched them and slapped them on top of each other and yes, it would have looked rubbish.

Alex said...

Superb idea with the masking, great card Emma.

Thanks for sharing.

Bye for now,

Lol! Yes, I was thinking I'd have punched them all out and layered them, but this is by far the more elegant option! ;o)

'Course, I'd have also stuck a flower on it. But that's just me. If you stand still long enough around me, you'll get a flower stuck on you.

But maybe that's why I love your cards.. they're flower free zones! lol! I love this design, and thank you for the thank you! No, thank you.. No, thank YOOOOUUUUU!! lol ;o)
