Stitched Ribbon Card

I am always a little bit hesitant to try new stuff, comfortable with what I can do..But my SCS friend Chrissy has been creating the most beautiful cards with pleated stitched ribbon. I bugged her so much about that she created a tutorial for us to create the beautiful pleated ribbon effect. You can see her tutorial on how to do that here.

I am such a visual person and this tutorial helped a lot and I ventured into learning a new technique and as I had told Chrissy, my first try will not be the best, but I will keep trying.

Here is my first attempt at it. I used the Vintage Picnic Set for this and colored the tulips in Lavender shades to match with the Bitty Boxes DP in Plum Pudding. The ribbon is saddle stitched Hibiscus burst.

Stamp - PTI Vintage Picnic
Paper - PTI Kraft, White CS, PTI Bitty Boxes DP
Ink - Memento Black, Copics
Other - SU Oval Punch, PTI Hibiscus Burst Ribbon, PTI Vintage buttons in white color.
