Stampin' Celebration #50

The weeks just keep flying by!  Another Thursday and another Stampin' Celebration challenge!  I loved the bright bold colors from this week's inspiration piece as well as the sharp edges.  

A fairly simple card for this week. . . . I started with a sentiment from the stamp set Word Play.  Did you know that this is one of the stamp sets on sale for 30% off this month?  To see the flyer with all the sets on sale this month as part of the National Scrapbooking Month Promotion click HERE.  To see two other cards I've made with this same stamp set, click HERE and HERE

I punched out the sentiment with the Decorative Label punch and then did a second punch from Real Red card stock.  I cut the Real Red punch in half lengthwise and adhered half to mat the top of the sentiment layer and half to mat the bottom.  

To add the ribbon, I ran Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, and Real Red grosgrain ribbon through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim die to create custom ric rack. A simple wow technique!  Hint:  I  found it best to use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to back the ribbon, and then run it through the Big Shot.  Then you peel away the backing and you have a ribbon sticker ready to adhere directly to your project.  How cool is that? 

To see some more samples using the decorative edge ribbon technique that I presented last fall at the Fort Worth Regional SU conference, click HERE.  

Anyway, lots of explanation for a simple card!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see who the Party Guest designer is this week as well as what the other Design Team members created with this same inspiration piece.  Then please play along--we'd love to see what you create!

Great bold colors! Just change the sentiment and it would make a great masculine b-day card too! Thanks for the ideas! TFS!
