Getting Edgy

......Sneaking in one more card before I'm back to work tomorrow. I've been out in the sun most of the day but had this idea earlier for CAS-ual Friday's latest challenge which is to put a fun edge on your card, so have quickly put this together before I embark on the mountain of ironing.


I used Versafine Ink in Habanero to stamp the Leafy Flourish by Clarity Stamps.The sentiment is by Stampin' Up and the ribbon is what was tied around the napkins at my cousins wedding last year. (The cheapskate that I am, I went gathering it all up once the guests had left the tables.) The inside is lined with matching paper. I have used this idea before with this stamp and I think it works well, the photo isn't brilliant as the sun was fading so I may take another snap tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting, I appreciate all your comments.

ttfn,
Fiona x

  3. Love this card Fiona what a great idea to cut it that way along the edge. Glad you collected the ribbon the sort of thing most of us crafters would do not tight at all.

  18. Stunning card. Love the cut away edge. That emerald ribbon is to die for, one of my favorite colours too! No I don't think you are a cheapskate, I recycle things all the time, ribbon from inside tops, giftwrap, lollipop sticks (not found a use for them yet...but one day..)bits off of old cards, the list could go on and on! Anyway I bet that ribbon would be hard to find. Love Sheila x
