Shades of Purple

My customers have been so faithful over the years that I no longer worry about whether or not all the materials I use are still current. Consequently, they help me use up some of my retired products. This card made use of retired chevron ribbon and, when slightly altered, the Wisteria Wonder Baker's Twine. On the card shown here, I used a Candy Dot Base Brad to pucker the wider ribbon, but it was so difficult to catch all the thickness plus bend the prongs out of sight that I decided to alter the technique. For class we tied the wide ribbon with a piece of twine. Looked great and was so much easier! But this is the scan of the card I used when writing out the instructions for class.

I love the Birthday Blossoms stamp set because of all the different fonts! I used a stamp from that set for the greeting on the front of this card. Such an easy card to make, especially because we have coordinating punches for this stamp set.
