Ribbon Scraps – Waste not, want not! I think we all save even the tiniest of our ribbon scraps, right? I know I do. Today’s challenge is to use ribbon scraps on our card or project. You may use as many as you want, just make sure it’s a scrap, a small piece. You can do whatever you want with them, but let’s just make use of some of these little bits of prettiness!!! This will be fun!!!

And today I have a clean and simple wedding card to show you:
Our 23 year old son is attending a wedding on Saturday and the instructions with his card request did not surprise me one bit — “make it as plain and simple as you possibly can.” LOL!!! OK — I tried!!!! Black and white, 5.5″ square, an old favorite Cuttlebug embossing folder and the focal image is black embossed. The stamp is my favorite go-to stamp for wedding cards and my ribbon is NEW!!! I used two small scraps (one on top and one on bottom) to make it appear that it is one continuous piece — who’s to know!!! I thought this 1” Grosgrain with the lovely Satin Edge was the perfect choice for this card!
The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store has the stamps and ribbon in stock:
Stamps: Loving Thoughts Centers ($14.95), Decorative 2″ Square Frames ($12.95), used on the 2″ Square Square Wood Stamper ($9.95) all by JustRite (seen on this page)
Ribbon: Black 1″ Grosgrain with Satin Edges ($.70/yard – available in 10 colors) (seen on this page)
Well, I hope my card passes approval with my son! LOL!!! WOW, have we had it HOT and HUMID!!!! 70 with a breeze would be perfect for me — but we’ll get that back soon enough. Fall is just around the corner — amazing, too, how the time flies!
I’ll be back on Saturday to announce the winner of our Blog Candy — it’s still an active post, so check it out here if you haven’t already, for your chance to win. If things go my way, I hope to have a new card to show you then as well. Have a great weekend everyone – get in some of that summer fun as it’s winding down real soon!!! Thanks for stopping in!
