Ribbon Slide Colorblocks

Happy Thursday! Before I get into Valentine's Day cards, I thought I'd catch up on some of my thank you cards. This was a fun card for several reasons. I get to show you a brand new Ribbon Slide (G141), I like these colors and I was able to use up some scraps (always a plus!).

For this card, I embossed the ribbon slide and cut it out using a square die. I used a craft knife to cut out the inside portion. I didn't have a ribbon the right color that was this wide, so I took some wide sheer ribbon and attached three narrow satin ribbons on top. I used Lots of Lines Background (H366) and ink colors close to the card stock colors for my color block background.

I used an embossing folder on the larger, two color background and die cut two corner elements out of the pink. The tag was first embossed with another embossing folder, then die cut with a circle die. I went over the letters with a chalk writer pen to highlight them.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll feel inspired to put a few of your scraps to good use!
