Stampin’ Up! Pretty Postage Braided Ribbon Card

Pretty Postage Sweet Card

Here's a pretty simple card I made with the Pretty Postage stamp set in the Summer Mini Catalog on page 11 and also a piece of braided ribbon I had made a week or two ago! Once I decided I wanted to use Rich Razzleberry card stock to match the berries on the stamp, I got out my Color Coach to see what color suggestions it made.  That turned out to be Old Olive!  A week or so ago I had played around with cutting the wide 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Old Olive Ribbon (retiring!) into three strips and braiding it.  Then I taped it onto my table until I decided what to do with it!  Today seemed to be the day to use it on this card! Since the ribbon is cut, the edges are fraying a little bit.  It is just wrapped around the Razzleberry layer and taped on the back.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere that layer to the Old Olive base since the ribbon was a little thicker than normal.  I adhered the little postage stamp over the ribbon using dimensionals on either side to allow for the thickness of the braided ribbon.  And finally I added some Square Ice Rhinestone Brads (retiring and sold out…sorry!)  As you can see, the Rich Razzleberry layer is embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
