To brighten your day!



Ribbon Tails is one of the March release sets from Papertrey Ink. It coordinates with the Double Ended Banner dies in a really fun way! When I first got it, I was trying to decide what color to use it with, and promptly decided I needed a rainbow to curb my indecision! ;) I used Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, New Leaf, Enchanted Evening, Blueberry Sky and Royal Velvet cardstock. I alternately stamped each one with Versamark, then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. So easy and so cute!

Coordinating button die cuts add just a bit of interest, and the silk ribbon keeps everything nice and flat for mailing. Really, other than the die cutting, this is a really quick and easy card that could serve for a bunch of occasions. (Don't you just love a go-to design?)

I hope you have a great day! Be well.

Jenn, this is wonderfully bright and cheerful. :) I honestly thought those were traditional buttons until I read they're from the die! Great job!

Nice, bright and cheery! At first glance those 'buttons' look like the real thing. But great for mailing because they are really flat. Very nice card!
