Creations Galore Gal Carol Wachholz: Creative Ribbon

Hello crafters! We've got a new spotlight post here at the Creations Galore blog featuring our lovely customers. That's YOU! We love seeing all the projects you complete using products found at Creations Galore, and we can't keep them all to ourselves. We want the rest of our customers to see how creative each and every one of you are!

Today, we're happy to have Carol Wachholz show off a few cards she created using a fun, new technique. Take a look at this fall card:

Carol die cut the leaves out of the yellow cardstock and ran it through an embossing folder. She laid the yellow cardstock onto the brown cardstock and traced each leaf. After removing the yellow cardstock, she put Scor-Tape on pieces of ribbon, placing them over the traced image and trimming accordingly. Once all of the leaves were covered in ribbon, she added the yellow cardstock to the card, this time using foam risers to adhere it to the card front. What an adorable idea!

Carol doesn't neglect the inside of her cards either! Look at how gorgeous the inside of this card is. Layered cardstock, punches along the top, and a great sentiment complete the fall greeting.

With fall coming to an end, Christmas cards may be on your mind. Carol created a holiday card using the same technique. This time she die cut a small tree out of the red cardstock and ran it through a poinsettia border embossing folder.

All the ribbons used in these cards are from American Crafts, sold in individual spools for only $1. Stop by Creations Galore to get your hands on a few spools to create your own cards!

We hope you've been inspired by Carol's fun cards today. We sure were! Want to be featured in next week's customer spotlight?
