Textures & Ribbon

And it’s Saturday again! This week our theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Hop is to use textures and ribbons on our cards.


I love adding texture and had a lot of fun with this one.  Here’s the details…

  • Fresh Freesia – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Fresh Freesia – 4 x 5 1/4, run through the Bark Embossing Folder, sponge edges in Fresh Freesia and add to card front
  • Mint Macaron – cut out Stitched Scalloped Contours dies, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Pansy Petals DSP – purple gingham – 1 3/4 x 4, add to card front
  • Garden Green – 1/4 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Basic White – 2 1/2 x 3 3/4, stamp flower in Memento Black, color in Highland Heather and Mint Macaron Blends, stamp greeting in Gorgeous Graph, add to card front
  • Fold piece of Highland Heather ribbon, staple and attach to card front using glue dot
  • Add Bee Trinket to card front to finish off

Lot’s of different textures on this one!

And now for our latest collection…


Our next online class collection from the NEW Annual Catalog is the beautiful ARTISTICALLY INKED COLLECTION!   Oh my word…have you seen this suite?  The artistic images in this set give a unique watercolor look to backgrounds, flowers and leaves!

  1. Mary, thanks for these hops! I learn something new every time. I love the simplicity of your layouts that just translate to fabulous on the card! When you say use ribbon, I love how you used a small piece to provide a big statement. Bigger isn’t always better. Plus, it’s a great idea for classes where you don’t have to give everyone a huge length of ribbon.
