CAS-ual Friday's - Feeling Loopy


I have a card for CAS-ual Friday's Feeling Loopy challenge. I had no real plan when i sat down to make this card. I just knew i wanted to do a Christmas card, so i pulled out my holiday ribbon to start with. I found some great wide, wired ribbon and started playing with it.

The ribbon has these snow flake squares that i folded into a loop. I adhered the loops to black cardstock. Next i used some dark pattern paper and inked the edges with black ink. I stamped Tis the Season and embossed it in gold.

I don;t have any gold buttons, so i took a wood button and inked it with versamark. Then i embossed it with gold embossing powder. To get in the nooks and crannies i used a versamark pen and embossed the button again. Then i attached it to the cardstock with gold metallic thread.

I adhered the pattern paper over the black cardstock, leaving a black border above the ribbon. Then i adhered this all to the cardbase. Last i used my finger to plump up the ribbon loops.

Thanks for stopping by!
