You are Special

It's my turn to share on the RRR Blog and today I want to show you a fast and easy fun card that will make you go loopy~!  With ribbon, that is!
First, I chose a previous month's Ribbon Club Assortment (January 2012) and used some of the printed ribbon scraps that I had left. I LOVE how all of the ribbons in the assortment go together so I don't have to spend time choosing what will work with what. I decided to use all grosgrain, although you can mix and match ribbon styles and widths for fun textures.

Start with your card layer and Scor-Tape. I use the 1/4" for the grosgrain. Add a piece of tape the width of your card, and just high enough for the length of loops you want to make. My bottom row of loops were approximately one inch long, so I adhered the tape about half an inch up from the bottom of my card panel.
Add a second row of tape for the second row of loops. The second row of loops were about 1 1/2" long. I didn't measure any of this, just eye-balled it!
Begin with your smaller cut loops and adhere them to themselves using Glue Dots, then to the bottom row of Scor-Tape, folding in half.
Continue adding loops across the entire bottom row of Scor-Tape.
Add the second row of longer loops.
I alternated the ribbon patterns as I went. Finish off with a length of ribbon of one of your patterns, using Scor-Tape to adhere.
Add your desired design to the rest of the card. My sentiment is from In and Out You by Flourishes. I added Kaiser Pearls to the corner for a little pop of bling. All done!
I hope you will try this very easy, fun, loopy design!
What do you think? I think this is one more reason to join the Monthly Ribbon Club! And I think my mom will love this for her birthday this month!
