Hello and welcome to Crafter's Companion! It is Stacy here today to share with you one of my favorite of the new Humphrey Christmas Stamp Sets. This is the set called Auld Lang Syne. I'm always getting cards for Christmas from folks I have forgotten or missed (oops) and I like sending them a New Years card after the craziness of Christmas has passed. That way they don't feel left out, they get to stretch the holiday season a little farther, and I don't have to rush to get another Christmas card made and sent before Christmas!! LOL It is a win win situation.
I made an easel card because I really like making easel cards. I thought the card would be cute with a banner on it so I cut out the triangles and layered them. I added some letter stickers to spell out HAPPY and threaded some bakers twine to connect the triangles. I colored the images with my new Spectrum Noir markers...which you are going to HAVE TO HAVE when we have them in the store to sell. They are comparable to Copic markers at a fraction of the cost! We have been lucky to get a sneak peak at them. I can't begin to tell you how awesome they are!!
Anyway, here is what she unintentionally taught me:
1. Start with two pieces of paper. One should be smaller than the other.
2. Cut off a length ribbon - long enough to go around the smaller piece of paper with a small bit on the back.
3. Find the place on the front of the paper where you want the ribbon to go. Place the ribbon there. Flip the paper over and using a small bit of tape attach the ribbon to the back of the paper. (crazy easy right??!)
4. Next using double sided tape attach the small paper to the larger paper. (hiding the taped ribbon)
Ultimate Tool (What are you waiting for??!! LOL) you can just take a matching length of ribbon and slide it under the ribbon strip.
Such a simple thing to do once you know how and now you do! You don't know how many cards I made and taped the ribbon to the back!!!!!!!!! I look back at the ones I still have and think they look ghastly. I hope this little technique was helpful to you.
Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time....happy scrapping!!
