Channelling Shelli Gardner

This is my version of a much nicer card created by Shelli Gardner, Stampin’ Up!’s co-founder and CEO at Convention. I was getting frustrated because I didn’t have the “right” ribbons... but, of course, once I’d finished the card and rooted in the bottom of my ribbons box properly, I found them after all. Must tidy my ribbons box.

The ribbons are stuck down on a piece of any coloured cardstock. Then you punch out the Fancy Flower Extra Large from a piece of Crumb Cake and pop that up on top. The leaves are an optional extra – created using the wing from the Two Step Bird punch. The button adds the perfect finishing touch.

  1. Oh I love your version! I made a version of it on my blog too but I didn't make it my own as nicely as you did.

  2. This is so adorable. I like the purple and the way to use ribbon scraps. Very cool !!

  3. Love this!! What a great way to use up some ribbon scraps. I just love your bright colors framed by the "crumb cake" punched flower! :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
