Anyways, here is my project. It's not very often that I do a clean simple design that I don't end up with the feeling that something is missing! But I like this one!
I know what you're thinking......"uh, have you ever heard of a stamp-a-ma-jig"??? Funny thing is, I used one! Ha ha! If you don't know, a stamp-a-ma-jig is this cool little tool to help you stamp an image straight and exactly where you want it EVERY TIME -- in this case, it was operator error! I added the stamped image AFTER I put the ribbon on, so it was hard to position without the ribbon getting in the way, therefore making it hard for me to see if it was really straight. Oh well, you get the idea! To fray the ribbon like that, you just cut the edge off each side and just pull it apart. This technique works with the grosgrain ribbon - I don't think it would work with silk or other kinds. I love the look of stamping the inside of the cards a little, but hardly ever think to do it! (my picture was a little blurry for some reason - those are little stars that I stamped with versamark and then with white)
Supplies used for this project were: brillian blue cs, real red cs, whisper white cs, real red 5/8" wide grosgrain ribbon, white 1/4" wide grosgrain ribbon, Celebrate This stamp set, star punch and white craft ink. The stars on the inside were from the retired Sporting Goods stamp set.
Have a wonderful and SAFE holiday weekend! I get to go to the Larry the Cable Guy show! They are filming it for the Comedy Central channel, so watch for me!!
