A card and a storage problem solved

Good morning Bloggers, I hope all is well in your world :o)
It seems to me to be colder since the rain and wind arrived than it was when it snowed. Feels so damp!
First up this morning, I spotted a ribbon storage solution in the lovely Incy's gallery over on Docrafts. She had used an svg file so I decided to have a go at making my own in SCAL and here is the result cut on the Cricut. I think Incy's was a bit smaller. Mine is 4 1/2" by 2 7/8" but can be cut to any size. I have save the cutout bits to stamp sentiments on :o)


I am very pleased with it and have so far cut out 17 of them and filled them up with ribbons. Got a lot more to cut out. Maybe now I will use ribbon a bit more often because I can see what I've got at a glance :o)


I do love my new 8x8 Embossalicious folders, I got them 3 for the price of 2 at Strikes garden centre, Congleton, on my crafting day with friends last weekend. I cut the card blank to 8 1/4 inch square as I have some 8 1/2 inch envelopes from who knows where!
The image was stamped way back in the mists of time and then abandoned but I dug it out when I found all those others languishing in a box a few weeks ago. I cut it and it's backing out with Grand Nesties, the gold being from the gold linen card kindly donated to me by the lovely Christine thank you Christine.
Base card is Bazzill, cut to 8 1/4 x 8 1/4. I scored the back about 3/4" down before attaching the front with strong DS tape :o)

Jackie
What a pretty card. The embossing is lovely.
The ribbon holder is such a great idea. I always think if things are visible they are more likely to get used.
