Happy Friday, and the beginning of a long Easter weekend! Donelda and I are back again with another day of Paper Crafts magazine CASEing. My turn to pick today, and here's the card I chose, this one from Vivian Masket:
This card is an online bonus project from the issue, so you can read all about the original here. I picked it entirely because of the ribbon, and knew exactly what I was going to use.
I won this wide ribbon ages ago (along with a similar one in blue and brown), and rarely use it. From there, it was a matter of deciding the other elements for the card. I originally tried the flower from this card from last week, but it was too formal for this more casual ribbon. Fluffles the Cat, however, is just about perfect! Fluffles qualifies this card for the current DYSU challenge (DYSU#66), Friendly Critters. And of course I heat-embossed Fluffles, so this can go in the current Simon Says Stamp challenge to use your favourite tool. Although the patterned paper is from Echo Park's Holly Jolly collection, I thought the green was very spring-like. And that means I can enter this in the current Ribbon Carousel Challenge, RCC47, Spring is in the Air! Even though I basted and gathered the ribbon, instead of knotting it as Vivian did, I still needed a double layer of pop-dot tape to raise Fluffles high enough. No sentiment, but I'll be able to customize the inside when I'm ready to use this card.
Donelda said she was immediately drawn to the ribbon on this card, too, so it will be fun to see what she came up with!
