So about 2 weeks ago I get a call from one of my customers who overheard someone while at a local craft store saying she wanted to do her wedding programs but the printer was going to charge almost $1000.00. Whoa! Sandy immediately told this lady she needed to speak to her Stampin' Up! demonstrator (ME) who might have ideas. I spoke to this young girl & didn't quite understand what she wanted but thought I really need to try to help her as she has to be able to do whatever she wanted cheaper. She stopped by My Stamping Place the next night & showed me what she had in mind. The one she received at a wedding she had attended had 4 or 5 pieces to it. I found a template online with 3 that worked well & knew it would be easy to use it for 3, 4 or 5 pieces. I knew she wanted to use the Shimmery White cardstock but didn't have it at home to print out so I just used Very Vanilla for my first sample. I didn't like the way the ribbon turned out on this sample as it needed to be a wider ribbon. The second sample I tried the Horizontal Slot punch instead of the Cropodile I used on the first sample and thought it turned out much better. I can't wait for Lauren to see my samples.
Items used: Very Vanilla cardstock, Bashful Blue ink, Stampin' Up! Baroque Motifs & Together Forever stamp set, Cropodile, Whisper White Taffeta ribbon, Tabletop Paper Cutter & Paper Snips
Items used: Shimmery White cardstock, Real Red ink, Stampin' Up! Baroque Motifs & Together Forever stamp set, Horizontal Slot punch, Real Red 5/8" Satin Ribbon, Tabletop Paper Cutter & Paper Snips
TIP: Don't have the color ribbon you need to match your project! Just make sure you always have our Whispering White ribbon & then you can color it any color you need to match. On the first sample I used the Bashful Blue ink pad to color Whispering White Tafetta ribbon. I just love that white ribbon.
