Ruffled Christmas



I just can't keep away from those ruffles. It's like Pringles, once you pop you can't stop. I created the ruffles on this card by laying down a strip of monoadhesive (my adhesive of choice) and pinched the top as I moved along. To make sure it stayed in place I stitched the top and then added a bow with polka dot ribbon to cover the stitches. I used more of the felt embellies from Making Memories and used a strip of the masking tape from the same collection, Falala. This first card is also a long card, which is the challenge at the Caardvark's blog.

Here is a close up so you can see those Moxie fabulous ruffles!



This was so much fun, I couldn't help but make just one more ; -)
I made the ruffle this time by stitching down by layering the ribbon like a wave and stitching it down.


Supplies:
Paper:
Old Olive and Basic Black cardstock (SU!); Cream cardstock (Neenah); Patterned Paper (Making Memories)
Ink: Versamark (Tsukedo); Scarlet Red (PTI); Tuxedo Black (Momento)
Stamps: Handwritten Christmas, Backgrounds Text and Retro (PTI)
Extras: Masking Tape (Making Memories); Scarlet Red Ribbon (PTI); Polks dot Ribbon (K&Co); Felt Embellishment (Making Memories); Sewing Machine and Thread
