The Garter Belt Card



I've seen so many do this scrunched up ribbon technique and decided I just had to try it too! This is the same layout and basically the same card as I posted on Monday this week but I changed the paper, etc. (I actually like the one on Monday better!) But anyway, I made this one using some patterned paper from Paper Studio and it really changed the entire look of the card.


Ok, now...we're on to the scrunched up ribbon stuff....My goodness, what a mess I had. I finally was able to get it looking good and left it on my desk until the next day to take a photo. Went back to the craft room the next day and the ribbon had flipped out all over the place...So, tried it again and this time not only used that sticky tape but also some glue! Great...now it's holding good. And then every time I'd look at it I'd see a GARTER BELT! You know, like the kind you used when, or if, you ever got married and threw to all the guys....that's what that scrunched up ribbon looks like to me!!! See what I mean! Now every time you look at a card with this ribbon technique, you're going to thing about my "garter belt card"! LOL!


Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by..........

This is such a joyful card, both in color and the story of your ribbon! I'm cracking up! So many times I've glued down a ribbon or button and the next hour or day - boing! This is just gorgeous though - beautiful papers! The butterflies are the perfect touch! xoxo

So you are saying you did it in honor of the Royal Wedding right? :) Love it, the paper is so pretty with the butterfly, which I love. The ribbon looks fine and doesn't remind me of a garter belt. Beautiful. Have a great day and weekend.

Gosh, I haven't even had time to visit any of the blogs I follow regularly! Love this card, Lynn, and I like the scrunched up ribbon, even if I'll think about garters from now on! Beautiful creation.
