Two Quick & Easy Ribbon Cards

I made these two cards for the recent saddlestitch ribbon challenge over at Crafty Ribbons. I was really pushed for time and as the criteria was to showcase the ribbon, not to just use it as a trim, I decided that I'd have to make something fairly quick and easy. So here are my offerings...

I made a ribbon flower and stem, mounted them onto some embossed and sanded Core-dinations cardstock. I added a labels 8 diecut and heat embossed the happy birthday.

For this parcel card, I placed some double sided adhesive paper onto some white cardstock before embossing. I then covered the adhesive film with Glamour Dust. The ribbon has been tied around the cardstock before gluing onto a card blank. The label sentiment has been punched with a Fiskers Punch ad secured with a gemstone brad.

Thanks for stopping by today.


I'd like to enter the flower card into the following challenges:
