I was in a swap with a few members of my demonstrator team. I have been intrigued with "ribbon" cards where you just use strips of Designer Series Paper as though they were ribbon. Saw this card on the Stampin' Up! blog and saved it for future inspiration.

Ribbon card off SU blog

I just loved the simplicity yet the classy look of this. So I used it to springboard into a card of my own using Not Quite Navy card stock and a Designer Series Paper from our Spring Catalog called "Parker's Patterns." The featured colors are: Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla & Not Quite Navy. That is a lot of options for color combos!

I cut varied widths of Parker's Patterns paper which resulted in every card being just a little different. I had a pile of strips and just arranged each one-by-one.


A closer look.


And so that the inside is consistent and on a color easy to read off of, I did this.
