From The Heart

I found this layout on another blog that I was skimming through one day (sorry I can't remember who). What caught my eye was the way the ribbon was done. Kind of non-traditional! I am always looking out for things like that! The other card had different colors and the card size was different but everything else is pretty much the same.

A couple of things about the card- One is that the stamp set does not come with leaves for the flowers. What you do is stamp the flower once for coloring and then stamp it on a green piece for the leaves. Then cut it out by cutting the extra "doodles" off. If you look real close at some of the flower petals and just cut the outside doodle part off you are left with a leaf! Isn't that clever? The flower is popped up with dimensionals. The second thing is the ribbon. I just punched a hole next to the first and last word of my greeting. Then I took my Kraft taffeta ribbon and poked it through from the top of the first word and brought it up through the second hole (last word) and wrapped it around to the back and brought it back up through the first hole. No tying need!! So clever! Well, it's different anyway! Enjoy the weekend!
