Fantabulous Cricut: Challenge Me Monday #99 - Fancy Trims

Hooray for Monday and the start of another challenge at Fantabulous Cricut!  This week is all about using fancy trims on our projects -- fabric, lace, or any other type of trim.  Yes, friends, it's the perfect reason to get frilly!

I love ribbon, but as a new crafter, I don't have an extensive assortment of colors and styles.  I was super excited to learn about our sponsor, Really Reasonable Ribbon, and how they supply assortments of ribbon at...well, really reasonable...prices!  I received some great free product from them and made this fun card with three types of ribbon they supplied:

Card Details:
  • Card Base - Recollections (A7)
  • Papers - patterns from Recollections' Charming paper pack; cardstock by Recollections
  • Cricut Cuts - owl from Create a Critter, page 25
  • Embossing - wings with Cuttlebug's D'vine Swirls
  • Other - trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon

The wide, ruffled turquoise ribbon that Really Reasonable Ribbon sent me was a perfect match to this paper pack I'd been neglecting for awhile.  I added a lace trim on top of the turquoise and also used white ric-rac around the owl's frame to add interest.  I'm really pleased at the result!

I also got to use some of my new K Andrew Designs Art Stamps, too!  The inside sentiment is from the Crafty Friends set I won from Paper Playtime awhile back.

Do you like trims?  If so, go show off all your best ribbons at Fantabulous Cricut this week for our Fancy Trims challenge!
