For this project today, I’m going to start by doing something monochromatic and that means the same color. The color card stock I’m using is called so saffron and the ink pad is also so saffron, so stamping up colors. The stamps that I’m using, is called polka dots and paisley and there's a little flower here that I’m going to be using for the background. You want to ink up that stamp and just stamp repeatedly to make a beautiful background. Once you get good at this, you can just keep on going really fast, and you have more confidence that wherever you stamp, it’s going to be good enough. When I first started, I was really into placement. I wanted it to be in the perfect spot but it’s not necessary to create a background and I’m filling up the whole back of the card and if it overlaps, it’s okay too. So, let me just show you what it looks like. You can see the tone-on-tone. Next, this time, just put that aside right now and what I've done is I've taken some beautiful paper. It’s designer paper. It has a beautiful image on either side and sometimes it’s hard to pick a side because it’s so pretty, but today, I’m going to have it, so that the olive side is facing the outside and I will put some tape on the other side and layer this onto the card. But before I do that, I want to just perk it up a little bit more and so I've taken one of the colors out from this paper, and it is turquoise and then I have the turquoise glow green ribbon. To measure the ribbon, you want to lay down your paper and fold your glow green ribbon over. And of course, that’s just way too much and you want to conserve it. So, just pull it down a little bit. You also want to give yourself plenty of room to tie a knot or a bow, using sharp scissors, these are the paper snips, just give that a cut. You don’t want to tape this ribbon on, but you do want to tie it into a little bit of a knot or a bow. Today, I’m a better knot tier, so it’s going to be a knot. There's a little bit of excess ribbon, so I will fold that in half. This is just the way that I like to cut ribbon and I'll take my paper snips and just trim off and throw away the rest. The reason why I didn’t tape it, is because, you can slide your ribbon up and down this way. You can also rotate it a little bit more, so it’s on the side, but if you taped it, you wouldn’t be able to that.
