Unity Chick

I had a little time to hit the craft room and since I haven't used my Unity Stamps for awhile decided to pull those out.  No coloring on this one...I just stamped the chick from the April 2011 KOTM on some patterned paper, cut it out and added it to the circle panel.  The chicken wire background on the circle panel was embossed in silver ~ I just thought it was a cute touch.  The papers are from the Lily Bee This and That collection.  I also tried something new on this one with the ribbon and like how it turned out.  I added a button, some ric rac trim and a few brads to finish it off.  All in all, I love how this card turned out.

I love this card. Can you tell me how you attached the ribbon to the card? Double-sided adhesive?

Jodi said...

Lizzy ~ Thanks! To answer your question, I put scor tape on the ribbon and "pleated" it. To attach it, I put some scor tape on the card stock and just added the ribbon. I may not have needed the extra tape on the cardstock, but I figured the stickier the better ;)
