I struggled for a bit with the Designer Series paper: it’s pretty bold, and I was trying to use it almost full size on the card front. It was too busy and it overwhelmed the floral frame. But there were some skinny scraps in the chaos that calls itself my craft desk, and they turned out to be just the thing!
More out of the box…I wanted wispy bits of gold ribbon and there was none to be had. However, the end of my gold shimmer ribbon was a little frayed, and as soon as I started pulling on it I realized it was exactly what I needed!! This time I used the warp, not the weft, by cutting a 12 inch piece of ribbon and trimming off one edge. These pieces started unraveling as though they were made for that very purpose!
Craft a little joy this season with the Merriest Moments stamps and Merriest Frames dies and embossing folder!
