Baby Boy Ribbon Card....

Char Style!!!! Remember this great card that Charlene made from the February Papertrey Ink Ribbons and then this one as well (scroll down a bit)??? Well, it went on to be the inspiration to Nichole for the first ever PTI Blog Hop. Ever since I seen Char's card I have wanted to try that technique. It is Brilliant!!!

I started by picking the ribbons I wanted to use. That was difficult. Char and I were actually Talking about ribbon and how many rolls we had. So today I did a massive clean of my Scrap area. This also included re-organizing my ribbon holder because I bought a "few" more rolls at M's Sunday. Just for the heck of it I counted the rolls.......354!!!! OMG and I have 10 more coming from PTI's Mach release and I am sure I will end up with 10 more for April's release. Yikes!!

Anyway, I finally decided to do a baby boy card so I selected 3 matching ribbons from American Crafts. I weaved the ribbons over cardstocka nd backed it on chocolate chip. Then I tucked the paper clip behind it. Then I clipped the word "boy" from one of the ribons and glued it to the center of the clip.

Then I embossed a peice of soft sky with the swiss dots folder from Cuttlebug. I used Burnt Umber (which I love) to ink the edges.

Next I wrapped the striped ribbon accross the bottom and made the little tag for it. I attached it with a brown safety pin and there you have it.

Thanks Charlene for SUCH a GREAT idea. I am so lad I tried it and let me tell you, it will not be last time either......LOVE IT!!

Supplies: PTI Stampers select white, SU soft sky, chocolate chip, STAMPS: PTI Borders & Corners Mono. Ed. & Mixed Messages, American Craft ribbons, palette burnt umber ink, SU soft sky ink, CB swiss dots E/F, clip & safety pin from MM.
