Ribbon Frame...

Happy Saturday,

Dont forget I am demoing with the fabulous jenny and Jane today at the Art of Craft mini show in Farnborough ( More details on facebook!)

I thought i would share a card made using a mix of dies from my new collection but focusing on the ribbon threader die set which you will see popping up on loads of cards as its just soooo flexible!

I used the corner and joiner piece form the ribbon threader die set to cut a square of ribbon thread loops into a piece of white card.  I then cut this out using the press cut stitch dot square dies.  I then threaded the gingham ribbon through the slots finishing with a knot at one corner.

I made a larger frame for this using the press cut plain squares in lilac and placed a gerbera daisy on opposing corners cut in glitter foam and finished with a flower brad.

I cut the gerbera square frame in the lilac and added this behind the frame which fits perfectly ( its almost like they were all sized to fit together doesn't it!)

I foam mounted this over an embossed piece pop wisteria card and added more mats and layers in the 3 colours to frame the card.
