Sometimes I have to step away from card-making to work on a 3-D project.. gotta get my fix. This week for our challenge at Catered Crop we were treated to a selection of ribbon from Corinna McGregor, owner of Ribbon Carousel. She has a Ribbon Club Kit each month and I just know that I'll be weakening and sign up.... Her selection of ribbons for the kits is delish! You can check out the entire package of all of the lovely green ribbon I received here.
I took a simple white box that had a tent top fold and an acetate oval window in front. Sorry, but I failed to take a picture of the box before I started attacking my project. I cut the oval on the main piece of the designer paper using a Nesties and allowed for the white border to offset the black papers.
The sunflower stamp is one I had to have now that I live in the Sunflower State of Kansas.. it's from Rubber Stampede... and I use it often. I stamped and colored the flower several times and popped up the pieces with dimensionals for a 3-D effect. My papers were all picked from my scrap pile and the ribbon, of course, is from Ribbon Carousel. And to make it even more fun, it's filled with Ghirardelli Dark & Mint chocolates. Viola.. it's now ready for gift-giving.
I hope you will check our Quick Fire challenge at Catered Crop... the chefs are always cooking up something fun. If you need a bit more inspiration, here's the board that Linda McClain, our fearless Top Chef, put together for us.
