Ruffled card

I have been missing for a few days, sorry ladies, have been extremely busy with my Advent Box Frames, have to get them ready for my friends.  The weather is horrid out there this morning, thick fog, drizzle but not too cold but that is use to change by the end of the week, colder and it might snow. Ah well winters really on its way, time to wrap

Today's card was one I made a while ago, the bow needs to be fluffed up but otherwise I am pleased with it.

Ingredients (to the best of my recollection)

A5 white card
Hunkydory green embossed card
Spellbinders lattice die (Sue Wilson design)
Spellbinders Ironworks Motifs and Accents
Ribbon from stash (I tend to buy ribbon whenever I see one I like)

Hopefully after today's marathon, glueing boxes, I will get back to making cards, which I really enjoy.  The Advent Box Frames seem to have taken over my life at the moment, but I get a feeling of satisfaction when I complete one.

Take you all.

  1. This is lovely Wilma nice colour

    enjoy box making I spent yesterday morning making envelopes for my cards, I did promise myself that I would complete the envelope at the same time as the card but that only lasted about a week :)

  6. Beautiful card Wilma. I too pick up ribbon wherever I see it - so I have a drawer full of pieces.

  7. Hi Wilma,
    another beautiful card. Love the design. You are so clever taking on the advent projects, they must be very time consuming, but well worth the effort.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. Beautiful card Wilma. Like the others I'm seeing your card as blue on my laptop too! Love the ribbon. I'm very bad for buying ribbon. I've got it everywhere lol!

    Sorry I haven't popped in to see you recently but I've added you to my blog list now so I'll be able to see when you post a new card.
