What do you do with.....
....a ribbon pack of peach ribbons?
How about making a fresh peachey card for someone who is under the weather.
As with all my cards the main focus is the ribbon - well what else!! This is my first gate fold card, regular visitors to the blog will know that I am NOT a card maker, but dabble in it from time to time.
The little flowers are just made by gathering up, to form little rosettes and putting a knot of ribbon in the centre before securing the gathers. The ribbon is "Ballet Ribbon" - you know for tieing up ballet shoes. It has a really soft texture, to get the darker shading on the edges of the flowers, I just dabbed them with an ink pad. I added a small sheer bow at the bottom and tied the card together with a jacquard rose ribbon.
All the ribbons for this card can be found in our Peach Pack which is in the January Pack Sale for only a £1.00 Look HERE These ribbon packs are amazing value and are selling out fast.
I made this card for Sydney who is having an operation today to remove the 3 pins in her elbow. I went to hospital with her yesterday and she was very brave, telling me which way to go to the X-ray dept, as if I was being silly for not knowing!!!! I have promised her a mega painting session when her arm is better, we went off to the shops to buy new brushes and a big pad of paper so that we are ready.
Our thoughts are with you Syd.
