Create Along With Us June 2016


(stamp:Papertrey Ink Meadow Greens  die:Papertrey Ink Counting My Blessings)

Today's card was inspired by Amy Sheffer's lovely creation:

I love the combo of colors she selected!

I lay black and white striped washi on vellum and Berry Sorbet cardstock and cut two sentiments out with the same die.

After stamping and layering my panels, I wanted to add a bit of ribbon.

I created a paperclip bow to clip on the top panel.

This is my new go-to embellishment!

If you google, you'll find a multitude of looks you can accomplish with paperclips and ribbon.

Bows and I aren't the closest of friends~so I LOVE this technique of ribbon treatment.

Thanks for stopping by during your busy summer~
