My ribbon discovery was this new to me, maybe not others. I knew this card needed some fiber but I was at a loss of how to add it and still be happy. I took just a strip of ribbon and punched a slit with my horizontal hand punch just before the end of my sentiment. I then wove the end through and had ribbon covering just the area on the card I wanted. I'm going to play with this idea some more and try to discover other applications.
I've cut this Doodle flower out I don't even know how many times but this is the first time I've curled the petals back. All I did was gentlybend the end of the petal around my finger and work it into a little curl. This gives amazing dimention to the flower. The most impressive thing to me was that I thought of this and created this card before 5am! The dog is sick so I decided to take on the day early but insisted I get the chance to play with my stamps before heading out to meet my ride into work.
