Happy Birthday (Prized Peony / Itty Bitty Greetings)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, if you are like me, you LOVE the beautiful ribbons and twines which are available.  If you are also like me, you might not use them very often.  I tend to tie the odd bow on my card but that’s about it.  I was sitting at my craft table last night looking at the gorgeous ribbons and saw the 1/2″ (1.3cm) Purple Posy Ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.  I thought how pretty it is and then realised I had never used it!  That had to change immediately.  Before I knew it I was weaving the ribbon and created this beautiful background panel.  It looked so lovely.

I paired the ribbon background with the gorgeous peony from the Prized Peony stamp set and a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  I love this stamp set! Don’t get me wrong, I love both of the stamp sets!  I love the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set has basic sayings.  It’s a staple in my collection.

The peony was coloured with the Purple Posy and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and finished with a coat of Wink of Stella.  I added a simple embossed sentiment and some Pearls to finish the card.  As the ribbon background is quite busy, I didn’t want to add too much more.


Here’s the card


The weaving didn’t take too long and it certainly made me happy to use more of this pretty ribbon.  I hope you’ll give this technique a go.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!
