Nope, Not A Christmas Card, But Ribbon is Involved!

The Friday Sketchers challenge this week is:

And here is my interpretation. I was struggling to get any of my Christmas images and stamps to fit properly without it looking ridiculous, so decided to do a new baby card instead! Not got a clue what or where the yellow and white gingham backing paper came from - just discovered it in my stash. The cute giraffe is a Cuttlebug die and I've had it quite a while but never really used it, which is very tardy of me as it is a lovely die and cuts nice and crisp. I've chalked it to give a bit of definition and added a wobbly eye.

The dotty strips are translucent vellum run through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, and the scallop edges have been made with my other new Martha Stewart punch (really sorry, but the names of them just escape me and I didn't write them down!) All edges have been lightly inked in black (yes it is still running out!) and the ribbon bow is silky stain ribbon from Blackburn market.

  • Backing papers: Not got a clue but have used translucent vellum
  • Dies: Cuttlebug giraffe from an animal set, and Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
  • Ribbon: Blackburn market
