Just Magnolia Challenge / Ribbons and Bows



The Just Magnolia challenge called for ribbons and bows. I almost always grab some ribbon for my projects so the challenge seemed easy enough. I chose to use Magnolia's cross stitch Tilda which I colored with my Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. The cardstock is a Georgia Pacific base and the blue is Bazzill. The stripe paper is from my stash and sorry I do not know who makes it. I used my Nestabilities and a Martha Stewart scallop border punch for my tools. Ribbon is by Offray. The sentiment is computer generated. I found this really cute cross stitch font on dafont.com that I thought was perfect to use for this card.

I had a little bit of scraps left so instead of putting them into my scrap drawer I decided to use them on the inside. I used the same cross stitch font for the inside sentiment as the front. I hope you can see it....clicking on the picture to make it bigger might help if you can't. Completed card size is a 5 1/2" square.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the Just Magnolia challenge blog!

Cute, cute, cute! I like the paper you chose and how you did the ribbon. After my little stitching experiment the other day, I've been thinking of trying some cross stitiching on a card - this would be a great image. Actually, now that I think about it - I think you mentioned that to me once too. Oh - and that's a cool font!
