Here’s a lovely Heirloom Frame and a Scalloped Ribbon trick to learn about. Because, who doesn’t love learning a new trick, right? And to make it even better, it doubles your length of ribbon, too!
I really had no idea where I was going when I started this card. I only knew I wanted to use the rectangle part of the Heirloom Frame dies and 3D Embossing Folders. I had not bought the coordinating stamp set ( no idea how that happened) , so I had to get creative. First, I found a stamp set that had a sentiment that would fit it in the frame – the Daisy Delight stamp set. I will admit that the sentiment was a bit small, and then I noticed the ever so slight little daisies imprinted in the design of the frame!! They are so subtle, I’m sure I would not have even seen them if I hadn’t already used a Sponge Dauber with the Gorgeous Grape stamp pad to highlight all the lovely pattern. So, I stamped the daisy trio above and below and I was off and running.
Now the colors that I had chosen in the purple family needed something else and I struggled a bit to find a good balance that wasn’t too bright. I wanted to use a ribbon and settled on the Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon. I really like the ribbon, but it was just too heavy and big. So, I cut off the edging to make it a bit sweeter and more dainty to make a nice little bow, perfect! And, I still have the other side to make another bow.
Hmm, now to find another color…ah, the crumb cake in the ribbon! Duh! Using the Basketweave 3D Embossing Folder gave it some texture (yes, you know me!) and softened the brightness at the same time.
Now it still needed something else…. I hadn’t used the Well Written Dies in a bit and that just seemed like a nice fit with the sentiment. I rolled a couple of Mini Glue Dots up into a couple of very small balls and strategically placed them to adhere to a piece of the Burlap Ribbon and voila! I think it turned out quite nice and I hope you like it too!
