Hello there!  This week is stash challenge week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  That means we’re inviting our challenge participants to use particular items from their crafting stash to create a Christmas or wintry card.  I’m the challenge hostess for the month of May, and I’ve chosen ribbon as the stash item.  Most everyone has ribbon, and there are so many different ways to use it, so we’re hoping to see a lot of great cards this week!

I went through the OWH Stars & Stamps sketch challenges to find one that would work well with ribbon, and chose sketch #92, which I hadn’t used yet.  I modified it a bit by using the snowman image in place of the small block shape.  One nice thing about clear photopolymer stamps is that it’s pretty easy to line them up, like I did with the sentiment – the stamp has both words side by side, but I needed to use them one on top of the other to fit the available space.  After I attached my ribbon across the length of the card front, I cut another piece and looped it for a little extra interest.  The snowman is adhered with dimensional adhesive to accommodate the thickness of the ribbon.  It’s still a pretty flat card overall, and the ribbon loop will smush down for mailing.
