Celebrate a Picture Perfect Birthday

Were you as disappointed as I was when Stampin’ Up! announced that the Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon from p. 5 of the Occasions Catalog would not be available?  You may not have heard why:  environmental audits in China closed down factories all over the country, and SU’s supplier was unable ship it in time for the Occasions Catalog sales period.

I decided to take this as a challenge, and pulled out my Silhouette Cameo e-cutter.  I developed a template to cut my own out of card stock, which I then crumpled up a bit and was able to separate into 2 layers.  I used some on this card:


I CASE’d the basic idea from Jacque Williams, but changed it up to make it my own.  You can see that I used a white gel pen to add faux stitching on the paper ribbon, since Stampin’ Up!’s ribbon appears to be stitched.  Those color-coordinated pearls?  Just our regular pearls colored with the Rich Razzleberry Dark Stampin’ Blends marker.

If you’d like to have my cut file to make your own paper ribbon, just send me an email and I’d be happy to share!
