A New Year Card

Hello, and Happy Monday..........oh come now, you knew Monday would be back around after the weekend!  LOL

Today is the start of a new challenge over at The Cheerful Stamp Pad !  For the newt TWO weeks the challenge will be "to use some ribbon".  How easy is that??

Here is my DT project for this week:
Using a white cs base, I ran the front cover through my dot embossing folder, then added three strips of ribbon in a Washi tape fashion, repeating the dot pattern.  I found some matching buttons in my stash that matched the ribbons, so they were added to the far right.  A sentiment from Rogue Redhead Designs on a die cut finished it off.

Quite a simple card, and I really like Washi tape, but it is so expensive and I never can decided on a design/color so I usually walk away without any. :0 !  I have  decided that I can start using that stash of ribbon as Washi ribbon, now HOWS THAT for a new term? LOL

Take some time to join up with the challenge, Sweet Stamps is the sponsor.

  1. Love the way you've used the ribbon - delightful card x

  2. I like the clean lines of the card. I too have passed up Washi tape due to price, maybe I should splurge.


  3. Thanks for you comment - you asked what program I use to make digital cards - usually Microsoft Picture It (one that I've had for years - I have other more modern ones, but still return to Picture It - I like it) x

  4. Love this bright and bold card - so smart!

  5. Pretty use of ribbons! Love the white background! Well I hope you have a fabulous 2014 with plenty of inky days!

  6. Use some ribbon. That's a good challenge and one we could probably all take. I like your stripes of ribbon (faux washi) and the fact that you had buttons to match just makes it!

  7. I confess. I've been huddled with my beloved heater (AKA Bleubeard) and have NOT been on the computer. But I'm here now and trying to catch up.

    I love your New Year's cards from below. That first one is a hoot. That's pretty relaxed (or comatose, whichever comes first)! And your DVD book is stunning.

    But the ribbon card is adorable. Simple, yet effective. Love that. And love that cards don't have to be over the top to work well, either.
