- Plain Celery Grosgrain Ribbon (or color of your choice)
- Certainly Celery Marker (or color of your choice)
1. Cut a piece of grosgrain and lay it across a piece of scrap paper.
2. Use the brush tip of your marker to simply draw a straight line down the center of the ribbon. Be sure to keep the marker moving steadily or you will end up with a blob
instead of a stripe. The ink will soak right through to the other side, so your stripe will show up on both sides when you tie your ribbon in a knot or a bow.
3. Alternately you can use your marker to run a line down each side of the ribbon. This is the effect I was after for the card I created this morning. I think it looks really cool!
Here is the completed card! I used all Stampin' Up! images & supplies. The stitching was done with my sewing machine using cream colored Egyptian 100% cotton thread. For card stock I used Blush Blossom, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery. The cute little tag stamp is from A to Z accents. The 3 strips of card stock are stamped in matching ink with Paisley. The striped paper is Petal Patch. Each piece of card stock has been slightly distressed using Direct-to-Paper technique with matching ink. I cannot stamp anything without doing DTP... it's an addiction!!
Ok, here's the card.............
When I started creating this card I thought it would be an upright, tall card... but when it was completed I thought it looked better going horizontally.
