Long and Narrow


I made a 3 x 6 card featuring the damask image in the Friends 24-7 stamp set.  I had used the bird enough that I wanted to go back to using the damask stamp (I made my GSG swap card with the damask image and that was the card that "started it all" with all of these Friends 24-7 cards LOL).  I'm loving this stamp set and hopefully my cards have inspired you with some different ways to use them.  I tried with these last two cards to do something a little "different". 

The new Whisper White Organza ribbon that I used is surprisingly soft and easy to tie.  Prior to getting it in my hands, I assumed it would be a little stiff but it definitely is not!  I really like it and it of course has the ability to be any one of the other 54 colors that SU! carries via the use of a little re-inker and a small plastic container and some water.  It would be easy to dye.  That is assuming that it will absorb the dye.  I think I'll have to find out ;)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
