I bought this really cool Making Memories set that has die cuts and buttons and embellishments. The set makes me really happy. It's full of so many goodies! The first thing I had to use was one of the butterflies.
I used glue dots to attach the ribbon. I do this often because of a couple of reasons:
1. I don't tie bows all that well
2. I hoard my ribbon and therefore want to use as little as possible
3. I'm cheap and don't want to waste ribbon going all the way around the card (lame, I know!)
To give it a "wrapped around" look I have about half an inch that goes around the card base and is adhered with glue dots also. I plan to keep the nice people at glue dots in business :).
The background is a floral scrapblock from CHF. I also used a scallop punch on the bottom edge. Why? Because I can't help myself!
The butterfly has a foam adhesive square on the top part of the butterfly and a glue dot at the bottom so that it looks popped off of the "thank you" label but is still secured to the card base.
Computer update (I know you guys were so worried! haha!): It is being overnighted to the computer hospital. I hope they can fix it tomorrow!
Thanks so much for visiting!
Have an amazing day,
