My last order contained My Favorite Things Cheerful Blessings set. Here's the first card I made with it. (Well, I think it was the first, but my mind hasn't been as sharp as it should be lately. Sleep really would be nice, don't you think?)
This is the first time I've used ribbon since Galileo said the earth revolved around the sun, or at least it feels that way. First, I glued the sentiment panel to the polkadot panel, then punched two holes with a leather punch and mallet, pushed each end of the ribbon through from front to back so both tails were hanging out the back of the panel. Then, I took one tail and ran it back up through the opposite hole, repeated with the second tail, and trimmed the ends evenly.
And yes, this is the second ribbon attempt because the first ribbon kept getting cut unevenly until I'd "evened it up" to nothing.
Life is all about determination. Or love. Or obsession. Or something like that.
