Fake it ribbon

Here we go... Sale-A-Bration samples now located as I am back at home :).

So far I have share with you 2 for the stamp sets that you can get free with and order of £45, Outlined Occasions and Sprinkled Expressions, and of course those fabulous papers Everyday Enchantment.  So today a stamp from one of the other 2 remaining sets - Elementary Elegance:

So here is a sample:

It uses the new In Colours Calypso Coral (base), Island Indigo (fake ribbon), Pool Party (frame) and Lucky Limeade (sentiment).

Note that the frame co-ordinates with the Curly Label punch.
To make the paper ribbon you simply take a strip of card, fold it under and then back out and cut a 'v' in each end. Here the label panel has been stuck over the top of the ribbon and raised up with dimensionals which works really well.

So, if you don't have the right colour ribbon then you can have any colour you like using this technique and it's great way to use up all those scraps that you never throw away!
