Happpppppppppppppppy Summer ya'll!  Cherry here to share a few fun cards done up with some delicious RRR ribbons and Scor-Tape.  The first card I dug deep into my scrap bin..and pieced my papers together.  I decorated a cute little chipboard house with papers and goodies and added some camille crochet lace to the bottom.  I wanted a frame for the card and decided to make one from the sweet May arts pink crochet lace ...I love the shabbiness it adds.  I also used some buttons that I adhered to each corner of the frame.  From there I added a border of white crochet lace to the bottom for added softness and than topped the card off with some grunged up seam binding in pink

                        The second card is just a traditional summer style goodie.  I used scraps again and some fun new chipboard.  The strawberries I threaded some bakers twine in cotton candy through my clear buttons to jazz them up a bit.  I also wove some pink velvet through the frame and added some buttons.  From there I grabbed me some of my fave fave two tone ribbon in fuschia and mixed it with a bit of the two tone ribbon in pink .

Scor-Tape is a great adhesive to add ribbons and trims to your projects.  It comes in a variety of sizes so there is a perfect size for any width of ribbon or trim.

 That is that!  Hope you enjoy!  hugs, Cherry

  17. These cards are really so lovely and very different from each other. I love the use of the crochet to just make it look so "lived in". I totally agree that scor-tape is the way to go if you want ribbon to stay in place.
