Fringed Ribbon Technique - Cupcake Card

Hi everyone!  Today's project is a card which features several retiring projects: the So Cute stamp set, Spot On Jumbo Wheel, and the 1-1/4" Certainly Celery Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.  We will be making this card at the next card class on June 14, 2011.

If you love the 1-1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon like I do and are surprised to see it retiring ... just to let you know, we will continue to carry striped ribbons that size in the new catalog, but not in the Certainly Celery color.   So if you want the 1-1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon in Certainly Celery, be sure stock up now before it sells out!  Additional 1-1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon colors that will be retired (and are still in stock as of the time of this post) are: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Real Red.

I am introducing a NEW simple technique with the ribbon on this project that I'm very excited to share with you!  I'm calling it the Fringed Ribbon technique.  I cut slits in the 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon using my ultra-sharp Paper Snips scissors and then gently ruffled them up to add some texture and dimension!  The end result reminds me of a hula skirt.  Let me know what you think of this fun and simple ribbon technique!

Ink: Pretty in Pink, Soft Suede

Here is a photo of the other stamps included in the So Cute stamp set. The images in this set are wonderful for cards and gifts for babies and toddlers, but as we've seen with today's cupcake card project, this set is also appropriate for all ages!  The small cupcake stamp fits nicely with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch.
