I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Happy Card

The challenge over at Pink Elephant is to create something with ribbon. I have seen this technique before about a year ago but I couldn't remember where and who did it. What I did was take a piece of white cardstock and used some of my ribbon from my ribbon jar. I put adhesive on the paper and stuck the ribbon on, when I was done I cut the remaining ribbon and then used my cutter to make perfect edges. So fun and easy. This card is a happy card. :) You can't tell but the white background is embossed. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by. So, after reading the directions it is not very clear if you would like better directions I can post some pictures of the technique, let me know.

Thank you for such wonderful inspiration! I have so many ribbon scraps and this is just the idea I needed. It is so much fun using every little piece---isn't it?
