As I perused my ribbon collection for the current HOC Add a Bow challenge, my eye kept coming back to this stitched grosgrain ribbon. There's a lot of textural interest happening in a very simple ribbon. I immediately thought of blacktop--country roads--picnic--summer-- road trip--vacation.
I embossed the cloud design first then hand cut a hill out of a scrap of the two-tone green. I adhered the ribbon down and tucked the ends under before using foam tape for the truck which I cut out of a summery gingham paper--ready for a picnic, anyone? Popping the scene panel up adds an easy design detail that packs great punch. This card really invites you to touch and examine the different layers while still remaining quite CAS. Love!
