ribbon embroiderycard


I did a swap where we had to do ribbon embroidery on the card. WILL NOT repeat WILL NOT do this again. oh my word its hard to get through paper with that needle and ribbon. this is my dorky looking flower I did 4 others that look a bit better but didn't take their picture before I stuck them in an envelope.

oh and the little white part the hardest part of all going through all those ribbons ughh. but I do like it on there.

To do the rest of the card. I used a light purple card stock and stamped some leaves with stampin up always artichoke on it. Wrapped it in vellum and stamped with plum stayzon the friends words. then mounted the entire thing on dark purple.

Wow! Sounds like too much work for me too, it turned out great though. I almost thought it was a watercolor-looking stamp when I first glanced at it.

What a neat technique, but it sounds kind of hard! I may wait awhile before trying this one. Your card is beautiful though!
