for once i actually *KNOW* what the very first pack of "designer ribbon" i ever bought was, so i'm pretty psyched! it was from basic grey's "gypsy" line, which i had seen used quite magnificently by the very first design team i ever paid attention to, the lovely ladies who hosted the boards at the (sadly now defunct!) "lifetime moments" gallery and store. that website was also the first place i ever saw (and became obsessed by!) chipboard, and where i learned that inked edges cover up a multitude of sins. :) ah... happy days...
anyway, despite the fact that i absolutely love that ribbon collection, for some reason, i still have quite a bit of it left! which came in handy when i wanted to make this:
(patterned paper: echo park, crate; ribbons, dimensional stickers and flag: basic grey; rhinestones: recollections; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
my card uses this week's uber-fun retro sketch and pretty faithfully, at that!
do you remember the very first ribbon ♥YOU♥ bought to use in papercrafting? do you still have some? why not go dust it off, and then check out the DT cards at SOS?! i'm pretty sure you'll thank me later! :)
