These cards are based loosely on a design by Ashley Newell ,HERE . I didn't have the same supplies so I used what I had. I had gotten the Congrats Cuttlebug embossing folder, I am sure on clearance ~ if you know me, you know that is right! I don't send many Congrats cards so after I made the first one I went on a mission to find a Birthday & Thanks folder. Well, I was in luck! At WalMart.com, HERE , they had both for $3.94 each. I got them both delivered for around $10. A STEAL! So I made some more of what I think is a pretty, awesome design. The cardstock is white core so it can be sanded to reveal the words. The trim is a 6" piece of that awesome rose ribbon I have used before. Remember the pink Mothers Day cards? This trim I got at Hobby Lobby in the fabric department. I bought the brown but the green is cream ribbon that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist. It took the color very well. I bought several yards when it was on sale! I just folded it over and sewed it together to make a "bunch". The card base is 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock. There is button twine and lace trim. I have a HUGE stash of brass & other charms I have collected over the years, so I used lots of those. I also made stamped tags with PTI Tiny Tags.
I really do LOVE this card design, Thanks Ashley, for the inspiration!
