Embossed and Ribbon Friendship Card


For this card, I knew I wanted to do two things. I wanted to color, and I wanted to use this ribbon, which I bought over 20 years ago, when Wright's Trim still had their outlet store in Massachusetts.

Anyway, I really liked this lavender ribbon with the woven roses. I mounted it onto a card which was embossed with a Spellbinders M-Bossability, and matted with a lilac colored card. The embossed layer is Core'dinations Pearl.

I had a specific JustRite stamp in mind for this card, but I can't figure out what I did with it. I've looked every where, and the only thing I can think of is that I got it mixed up with the paper the last time I used it, and it is somewhere in a paper stack. I have too much paper, so I still haven't found it. Luckily, the whole set is missing, which means I had cleaned the stamps I used from the set and put them back in the package, so it will be easier than trying to find one little clear stamp. Anyway, I used this JustRite stamp instead. It was stamped on more pearl CS with VersaMark, and embossed in gold. I was planning on using Copics on it, but my purples were the wrong shade, so I used Gel pens instead.

I fussy cut around the stamp and mounted it dimensionally, then used a gold GellyRoll to accent everything. The card was finished with a little bow and some Liquid Pearls.

Such a beautiful elegant card, Kathi. I love your embossing and your stamped and coloured label is gorgeous, as is that beautiful embroidered ribbon. I love ribbon shops, but I have so much I really should avoid them xx

Very pretty, and you are right that ribbon with the embossed roses is really special. I want you to know you are not the only one looking for lost stamps. I just wish I could find that Chef stamp I lost. I think it must of walked away.

Such a beautiful card. That ribbon is very lovely.
The case of the missing stamp is all over the country obviously. I just lost one recently too. :(
