Ribbon & Spirals ... Oh My!

This was such a fun card to make! I'm just a lovin' the new spiral punch ;o) It can do much more than just additional notebook pages!!

I loved the card that SCS'er cherylowen shared back in March -- I had to add it to my faves and incorporate it into my April demos as I loved her layout. I changed a few things for my card ~ I didn't have the Season by Season stamp set yet and I used the colors of cardstock I had on hand. I have since gotten a new Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write Marker since this card ... as you can see my other marker had seen better days. *blushing* This card came together very quickly ~ it only uses the Polka Dots and Paisley stamp set but I could very easily see adding a background stamp too! (love my backgrounds!!)

I stamped the three flowers on the Confetti White cardstock using the stampin write markers and the *huffing and puffing technique* (joke with my customers!) Then I simply added 'happy' saying in the corner and mounted that to the Certainly Celery and So Saffron backgrounds. Then I used the 1/8" punch and made one hole, tied the ribbon, punched the 2nd hole, tied the ribbon and did that for the third and final time. I didnt punch all three holes at once because I wanted to be sure my spacing was as close together as possible so by doing it one at a time helped me eye that better. Then I just simply used the Spiral Punch on one side of the elegant eggplant (it just amazes customers how that fun punch works sooo slick when it's demoed in front of them!) and assemble the card together!

As always, here is the recipe!!
Stamp Sets: Polka Dots & Paisley

Stampin’ Pads: Elegant Eggplant Stampin’ Write Marker, Certainly Celery Stampin’ Write Marker, Elegant Eggplant

~TFL & Enjoy~
