Yep that's right folks! I am in still in the running to become the next Paper Crafts Gallery Idol and as they say I am in it to win it! The third round of voting is now live - you can vote (hopefully for me!) right here.
Our theme for the third round was creative uses of ribbon. For this challenge challenge I decided to use several different colors of grosgrain ribbon and weave them into a pattern. I started with my card base and cut out a house shape from the front. I then got busy weaving my ribbons, securing them from the inside of my card, so they show through the open house shape on front. I wanted to create a bit of whimsy on this card so I added some grass to the front complete with ribbon leaved flowers and a cute little dragonfly secured to the card front with wire (he wobbles around when you move the card). I added my sentiment to a few cute puffy clouds in the upper corner of my card and voila!
And here is another image of the card front. I think you can really see all of the texture and depth the ribbon adds in this photo.
I added a few fun details this card such as the ribbon leaved flowers and the little flying dragonfly. You can see detail images below.
