Today is the last day of our Best of British crafting event - boo hooo. We have had so much fun showcasing all the different BRITISH craft companies in the country. Our last sponsor is Pink Gem
I decided to go out with a BIG RIBBON BANG on my card today, be warned it is a bit full on!
I did warn you. The card is totally made from ribbon. I used grosgrain in different widths here and our NEW red KEEP CALM and CARRY ON ribbon here. We all think it looks fab.
I must admit it was the fab design from Pink Gems that got my brain thinking of the Union Jack design. The little teddy is holding Union Jack Bunting and I thought I could mimic it in my card design. I used the satin ribbon here, but because it is made from satin it started to fray on me, so I just backed it onto double sided tape and then paper. It was then easy to cut out the triangles. I attached the triangles to a piece of black embroidery thread, tying a bow in one end (same as teddies).
Some of the girls from Pink Gems design team have also joined in with todays inspiration. Find all the creations on our inspiration blog here , and DO NOT forget to enter your name for our last prize. I am sure you know what to do to enter for todays prize, leave your name on our Inspiration blog here.
We would love you to leave a comment with us as well, please let us know if you have enjoyed the event. I would like to thank all the sponsors that have provided super prizes, our Design team girls for their stunning creations and regular postings. And a mega thanks to Mandy for co-ordinating the event.
Finally another thank you to my Basingstoke girls Sharon, Lindsey, Mel and Andrea for sharing their Jubilee creations with us. It is wonderful to see what others do with our ribbons and I have had fun adding their creations to the blog. Although sending us photos of cupcakes and choccies without samples.............we think is rather unfair!!!
Have a enjoyable weekend everyone, I still think this soldier ribbon is still my favourite.
A reminder of all the girls creations.
