Gingham Valentine

 
 
 





 


 
 
 Merry christmas to you all! I can't believe Christmas Eve is just a day away! I am taking a break from baking to share a card tutorial for Really Reasonable Ribbon . A fun , frilly, feminine little number using gathered ribbon. I used the pink gingham and grabbed a needle and thread and started stitching nice large stitches through the center of the ribbon. I used approximately a yard of the gingham. Once I was done I gathered it up by pulling the thread through and got it nice and ruffley. Once I had it looking the way I wanted I covered my cardstock with my chosen papers. From there it was just a matter of laying it out shaping it into a heart. I used hot glue to adhere it down. Now comes the fun part of adding fun little touches. Paper borders, jellie dots, a couple of stick pins, and a fun banner with my sentiment. What do you think? I think it turned out pretty stinkin cute. Hope you have enjoyed! Well my friends...I am headed back to the kitchen to make my fantasy fudge. Wish me luck! Hugs, cherry
