Papercrafters Monthly Blog Hop Featuring Ribbon and Embellishments

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the July Paper Crafting Blog Hop Bling Spotlight! I am participating in this blog hop with several fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States,  Australia and United Kingdom. You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sue Boerner's blog. Welcome one and all.

Our blog hop this month spotlights current ribbons and embellishments in any type of project. Now what should we do? I have had this idea for a partial die cut card featuring the new Magnolia Lane Suite (see AC pp. 36-39) since I first saw this bundle. It is hard to tell from this photo, but the magnolia is partially cut from the front flap of the card and the 2" strip of DSP and the 1/2" strip of Basic Black Cardstock behind the magnolia are adhered to the the "inside" of the card.

Without the partial die cutting technique, the card is fairly simple, however...

...tiny changes of the Basic Black strip next to the DSP strip on the inside of the card to the smooth texture of a strip of the 1/2" Black Satin Ribbon (AC p. 175) and the addition of the Clear Epoxy Droplets (see AC p. 178) on the front panel really make this simple card, elegant. (I decided not to use the Cork Embellishments from the suite for this card. I will save them for another card!)

The coloring of the flower was Stampin' Blends in So Saffron, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake.

A detailed instruction sheet is available upon request with any purchase of $20 or more through my online store using this month's host code.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my card using ribbon and embellishments from the new 2019-20 Annual Catalog. Leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations.
