Swaps for OnStage with Ribbon of Courage

Swaps for OnStage

We gather twice a year with fellow demonstrators and it’s a great time!  Super fun to meet our team that is all over the country. We connect online but it’s super to be in person.  We also see new products, catalogs, ideas, and get training on the new designs and products.  

And we swap cards.  We will be sharing these swap cards in January so I thought I’d bring in bright spring colors.

My swap could be just a “hello”, or a “thinking of you” or sympathy, maybe even a Valentine card. The set is Ribbon of Courage and this is a great sentiment. 

I used Flirty Flamingo, silver foil and silver metallic ribbon, on top of the silver glimmer.  Why not have a little bling? By January we’ll have shorter, darker days so a little bling will give us some cheer and brightness.

A few closeups – here’s the fake bow… we call this a Lori Bow as Lori does not like to tie bows.  You simply scotch tape about 6” of ribbon around the card, securing the ribbon on the back, then tie a 4” piece onto this piece with just a simple knot.  So slip your 4" piece under the secured ribbon and tie the knot.  Secure with a glue dot. 

I love texture on cards… so the top is the 3D leaves embossing folder and the bottom in silver is the Polka Dot embossing folder.

Simple but pretty, hope you like it!
Happy stamping MaryKate
PS I’ll be sure to post the swaps I receive as soon as I return from OnStage!
