Gingham Valentine...

















                Merry christmas to you all!  I can't believe Christmas Eve is just a day away!  I am taking a break from baking to share a card tutorial  for Really Reasonable Ribbon .    A fun , frilly, feminine little number using gathered ribbon.   I used the pink gingham and grabbed a needle and thread and started stitching nice large stitches through the center of the ribbon.  I used approximately a yard of the gingham.  Once I was done I gathered it up by pulling the thread through and got it nice and ruffley.  Once I had it looking the way I wanted I covered my cardstock with my chosen papers.  From there it was just a matter of laying it out shaping it into a heart.  I used hot glue to adhere it down.  Now comes the fun part of adding fun little touches.  Paper borders, jellie dots, a couple of stick pins, and a fun banner with my sentiment.  What do you think?  I think it turned out pretty stinkin cute.  Hope you have enjoyed!   Well my friends...I am headed back to the kitchen to make my fantasy fudge.  Wish me luck!  Hugs, cherry
