It's so rare that a card turns out exactly as envisioned from the get-go! I made this Americana-inspired card this morning while trying to figure out what to do with the three extra rolls of Cherry Cobbler scallop dotted ribbon I accidentally ordered. I was adhering the ribbon down for another card and was suddenly inspired to make this one.
I used the inset embossing technique (photo tutorial here) for the Whisper White snowflakes on the Night of Navy background. The sentiment is from Four the Holidays, which I know many of you got for FREE because it was a Sale A Bration choice last spring! Love SAB!
Anyway, wanted to share this card partly because it shows off that pretty ribbon, which you can enter to win by leaving me a comment on the post at the top of the home page! Check back on August 31st, 2011, to see the names of five lucky ladies (or gents!) who will be getting a 1-yard sample of each of the colors this scrumptious ribbon comes in. Perfect for playing with! Good luck!
