I am enjoying making the Slimline Cards. If you caught my video on Monday, I showed you some tricks on using your 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper to create these cards.
Even though the Slimline Cards are larger than the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, the little tricks I show you, allow you to show off your Designer Series Paper even on a Slimline Card. If you missed that video you can watch here.
The other trick I shared on the video, was using your little snips of ribbon. I took part in my first Stamp Retreat, a couple weeks ago. I have did many Stamp Retreats myself, but have never taken part in one. The opportunity came available for me to take part in one. It was done by Amy Combs of California. It was so much fun. Amy is a very talented an organized stamper. Well I learned this ribbon trick from Amy.
You can see I wrapped Linen Thread around my Slimline Card and the just tied a little piece of the Gorgeous Grape 3/8" Sheer Ribbon. Just adds a little splash of color. Amy has a Ribbon Jar and when she cuts off too much ribbon and has a little snip she puts in the jar. Then she can use to add a splash of jar. Great Idea Amy.
