I made a card just for fun!

Remember the ribbon weaving tutorial I posted here? Well, I finally made a card with it! This week's demonstratable card challenge was weaving, and Caville (the hostess) said I could use ribbon weaving. I chose last week's color combo challenge: Lovely Lilac (!), Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink. For the background, I inked up my Daisy Dash jumbo wheel for the very first time. (I love the smell of new rubber in the morning! LOL) I used the wheel guide to make sure it would be perfectly straight. I used the A Perfect Day rub-ons from the Occasions Mini for the flower and on the taffeta ribbon. (This rub-on fit perfectly in the five-petal flower punch. There's one for the scallop circle punch too!) I added a rhinestone brad and adhered it with a Stampin' Dimensional. Next I used my favorite new trick: I used the horizontal slot punch to punch a slot for the ribbon to go through. I added the rub-ons to the ribbon; just like with the woven piece, I had to rub REALLY hard to get them to stick, but it worked. Then I added the little celery knot. (I had already planned to put that knot on there, but I'm using it to cover a little rub-on boo-boo!)

Stamps: Daisy Dash jumbo wheel
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac
Ink: Lovely Lilac
Accessories: A Perfect Day rub-ons, wheel guide, Ice Circles rhinestone brads, Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon, Certainly Celery narrow grosgrain ribbon, horizontal slot punch, Love & Happiness rub-ons (retired), five petal flower punch

Happy stamping!

I love this ribbon weaving technique - it is so fun!! Your card is really cute too - love how you used the rubons on the flower. I bought a whole package of them and haven't used them yet - sigh!!

What a stunning card, Jana! I keep saying I'm going to try ribbon weaving, but never get around to it!
