Embossed Ribbon Card for Challenge

The challenge for next month's stamp club was to make a card using this blue ribbon - recycled from a lanyard. I decided to feature it as the focal piece, folded for four loops and topped with a couple wooden flower embellishments. I started with a black card base and a white piece where I stamped the encouraging sentiment from Avery Elle. Then I die cut a fancy circle by Spellbinders and ran them through the Big Shot embossing them twice. I did the x's first, then the dots for a unique embossed look. I added a couple black candies to complete the card.

I am entering this card in the embossing challenge at Simon Says Stamp and the Anything Goes challenge at Crafty Ribbons.

Great way to recycle that lanyard Karen! I love how your card came out, the double embossing looks fab on those fancy circles and I just love that sentiment. Hugs, Brenda
