The challenge this week over at the Jingle Belles blog is all about ribbon. I had an idea about how I wanted to execute it but I wasn't sure it was going to work until I actually finished it!
First I used a plaid background stamp on my Chocolate Chip card stock, I didn't want to leave it blank. Then I took 5 different Christmas ribbons from Stampin'Up! (retired) and layered them to create a background. I colored my sentiment stamp with markers and cut that out with the oval dies from SU. It's hard to tell in the picture but the sentiment panel is popped up with dimensionals. I thought the panel looked a little bare so I added the pearls for a little extra visual punch.
I'm really pleased with how it came out and I hope you like it too (sorry for the crappy picture, I was in a hurry)!
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Christmas Lodge, More Merry Messages(inside sentiment, not pictured cause I forgot to take a pic!)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Big Shot, Framelits Ovals Collection, Basic Pearls, SU Alpine Ribbon, SU Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon, Early Espresso Quilted Ribbon, sponge, dimensionals
