World Cardmaking Day | Be Brave Challenge

Happy World Cardmaking Day!  Fun Stampers Journey is celebrating by having three challenges throughout the day!  So stop by their Facebook page for fun ways to join in.  And another reason to get creative, is Fun Stampers Journey is having a Be Brave Card Drive during the month of October.  Send your cards into FSJ and they will be sending them to the Breast Cancer non-profit organization to give to patients.  Such a simple way to really help bring encouragement.

I am sharing two cards with the challenge to use ribbon in a unique way.  The unique way I used ribbon on my cards was to adhere the ribbon to another piece of cardstock stock with white liner tape, die cut a shape from my card panel, and layer that on top of my ribbon.

So here's my first card using the Pineapple Smoothie Crimp Ribbon under the Star Burst Bloom die.  I have my flower die cut from the panel, but also the die itself, so I did an inlay, by just adhering the die cut flower back in place, I also included the outside parts to fill in.  This is such a quick, simple, but beautiful technique, that really shows off the texture of the ribbon.

The first card is for the FSJ Card Drive, but this second card is for my husband for our 27th wedding anniversary.  This was a perfect technique for a non-feminine card, so I had to give it a try.  I used similar colors as the first card, but brought in more Fall colors.  For this card, I used the Wedding Sprig Die.  This only die cuts a solid sprig unlike the Star Burst Bloom in the first card, so I did not need to do an inlay.  I can see the pretty satin ribbon under it, which I love.

Both of these cards are great ways to use your ribbon stash, but also a quick clean and simple way to make some really pretty cards to help with the Card Drive.  They both also have the same basic design making them easy to duplicate.
