TGIF Challenges | TGIF #217 | Ribbon Ruffles

Hello there stamping friends! Welcome to my blog. Today I'm playing along and entering my card in the challenge over at TGIF Challenges | TGIF #217. This weeks challenge is all about the technique Ribbon Ruffles.

Ribbons are gorgeous to use on any card, which I love to do but when they are ruffled up they give any card that extra special look.

 I've gone for a CAS (Clean and Simple) card today only because I didn't want to cover the beautiful embossing from the Magnolia 3D embossing folder. How stunning is it??? I was really just playing around with the folder to see what I looks like when embossed and was really taken a back with how amazing it is and then my card just evolved from there. I just love the beauty in the simplicity of this card. What's the saying 'Less is More'.

I've created more of a fuller Ribbon Ruffle for my card with a needle and thread. I've sewed a simple stitch along the top edge of the ribbon and Once I was finished stitching the length of the ribbon, I pulled the thread taught to create the ruffles and tied a knot it the thread so that the ruffles didn't unruffle. The ruffle was then adhered to the card with tear and tape.

To add to my ribbon ruffle I layered a smaller piece of one of the Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card Pack cards, that I had trimmed off, and then accented it with one of the stickers also from the Memories and More Card pack. Layered then on that is some coordinating Magnolia Lane Mossy Meadow Linen Thread and the Enjoy Today sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set. Got to love coordination and matchy-matchy!

Just a few little bits of bling to finish it all off. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
