This is a very simple card.  The card base is white cardstock cut at 4 1/4x5 1/2.  A piece of pink check paper cut at 4 1/8x 5 1/4 is the mat.  A pink ribbon was tied in a knot befor the mat was adhered to the base.  The 4" flower is a Cricut cut from Cindy Loo.  There are lots of layers but it is easy to assemble.  Cindy Loo has several great images.  This card is on my display board for my Cricut Demonstrations.

Here are 2 tags I made with Wrinkle Ribbon.  The next post contains abreviated instructions on how to make it.  Ask if you have questions.  The top pink tag is a scrap of paper from my scrap drawer.  A pink ticket cut with PTI ticket border die and stamped with a stamp from Just the Ticket.  I used a Hot pink felt flower from my stash.  I have a LARGE selection of brass charms I have collected over the years and I am trying to use them instead of "saving" them!  The wrinkle ribbon is on the end attached with a small pink clothes pin.
The bottom one is also made from a scrap from my scrap drawer.  I stamped Simply Chartreuse ink on blue paper to make the Bingo card, PTI, a ticket from the same paper and ink and the flower is American Crafts from the Greenhouse collection.  There are a couple of bits of blue lace border die cuts, too.  It is finished with green Wrinkle Ribbon.

This card is to show one of the current "Hot" craft supplies, "Wrinkle Ribbon",  It is made with Hug Snug rayon seam binding.  You wet it with some sort of dye, Glimmer Mist works well, ball it up and let it dry.  It is really fun for tags.  My Sister, Pat wanted me to make a card.  This one won't win a prize for my best work!  It is with a brand new stamp set I just got from Papertrey Ink , Everyday Treats.  The paper is Dark Chocolate PTI cardstock and Bitty Dots from PTI as well.  The flower is a Prima I Glimmer Misted.  I used PTI Mat Stack 4.  LOVE that die!  I will also post a tag which will show off the Wrinkle Ribbon a little more.

This is a fun card!  The base is 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock. I layered a piece of We R Memory Keepers paper cut at 4x5 1/4.  Mounted on pop dots is a piece of orange cardstock cut with Papertrey Ink Spiral Notebook page, here .  It was stamped with the Order Ticket stamp from It's Official, here , in Dark Chocolate PTI ink.  On top of that is a ticket made of cream cardstock and stamped in Dark Chocolate.  The die is from PTI and the stamp is from Just the Ticket.  The ticket is attached wioth a spiral paperclip from my stash and the whole embellishment is wraped with button twine!  The card is VERY bright and cheery!

This card is has a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 white cardstock base.  The green background mat is Stampin Up Kiwi Kiss cut at 4x5 1/4.  The print cardstock is K & Co Poppyseed.  The 4 x 1 3/4 greem leaf piece was cut with a
Sizzix On the Edge Die: Brackets, by Tim Holtz.  A 4 1/4x3 1/2 piece of stripe paper was layered under the left edge.  A second piece of the green leaf print was cut 1 1/2x 2 1/4 and mounted on pop dots.  A piece of white satin ribbon was pleated on the top using my ATG gun tape.  A creamy button was threaded with button twine and secured with a glue dot.  A small strip of white cardstock was stamped with a Papertrey Ink stamp and attached on the top of that paper.

This is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.  2 patterns of green and white paper were used.  The solid green Rick Rack was cut with the Easter Cricut cartridge.  The same solid green Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 1 has a white oval stamped with a Hero Arts sentiment.  Lastly I made a "grunge" flower with the small plaid paper.  I used the 5 petal flower from George and Basic shapes cut in 2 sizes, sprayed with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.  I scrunched it all up and put a clear jewel brad in the center.

This is another masculine card.  The same brown paper I used before, an old DCWV stack.  The card base is 5x7.  The sailboat was cut with Wall Decor and More Cricut cartridge.  It was cut with white cardstock and sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Moonshadow Mist.  It gives it that cool two tone look.  Sort of creamy brown but when you turn it, it has a violet cast.  The second thing it did was kinda warp the paper.  I did not try and flatten it because it gives it a 3D look.  The sails almost look like they have the wind in them.  I LOVE that.  I did not spray heavy and I blotted a lot of the mist off.  It is popped off the card with pop dots!

This card is made with almost all handmade paper.  The base is 5x7 white cardstock.  The black mat is
4 3/4 x 6 3/4 black handmade paper. White handmade paper is cut with Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 1 and layered with the black paper and trimed in the shape of the mat stack.  The sentiment was stamped in PTI black ink.  The same white paper was cut with PTI Large Scallop Border.  It is 2 x 4 3/4.  A strip of the black paper was cut with the PTI Eyelet Lace border die.  A flower was made with the black paper.  Those instructions can be found on Dawn McVeys blog My Favorite Things.  The little pearl spray is from Dollar Tree, in the wedding supplies.
I think this is perfect for a classy "Over the Hill" type card.  Very simple.  The picture does not do justice to the pretty paper.
