Handmade Cards, Spring, Technique

One Card That Will WOW Even Your Mother-In-Law

Do you ever see something and say “Wow, I have got to make THAT” (Isn’t that the whole point of Pinterest?). When Stampin’ Up! released  the Sale-a-bration catalog that is EXACTLY how I felt about the Organdy ribbon sample card below. 2019_SAB_P07_BSo I watched every YouTube Video I could find then got out my hot glue gun and proceeded to “spider web” myself, desk, ok pretty much my whole office. Such is everything I do with a hot glue gun. Once the strings were cleared away these perfect rosettes lay on my silicone craft sheet begging to be paired with the right stamp, ink and paper. Now, I have not made another since (the burns have to heal first) but with new found confidence there may be a garden of flowers here before spring! Please don’t think this card isn’t for you if you were not able to order the ribbon before it sold out. This technique can be done with any ribbon!
