Now that the Occasions Mini Catalog is live I can't wait to show some of the lovely things it has to offer. With the Vintage Trend still going strong, Stampin' Up! has lots to offer including the stamp set Bordering on Romance and the matching Twitterpated designer paper.
Today I wanted to show you a card I made using the new Pleated Satin Ribbon as the focal point. Available in 4 colors, I chose the color Blushing Bride to create a simple floral accent for my card.
Note: Another new item this season is the Adorning Accents Edgelit Dies to use with the Big Shot. That is what created the unique scallop at the bottom of my card.
My close up of the ribbon flower. To make this:
1. Punch a 1-3/8" circle of cardstock
2. Cover it as much as possible with Sticky Strip. Remove red strip.
3. Begin in the center of the circle, lay down the end of the pleated ribbon and wrap it around and around until the punched circle is covered. Cut the end.
4. Add embellishments such as a Basic Pearl or Basic Rhinestone.
No twisting is necessary because the ribbon is pleated! These can be made in any size really.
All supplies are Stampin' Up!
