Friday Fun - Friends With Flair

 Hi all!  I hope you are enjoying your Friday so far.  I have a little something to show you today that is a double duty card.  Jimmi asked us to make a Graduation card this week as our Friday Fun Challenge.  I chose a couple of Unity sets so this is doubling as a Friends with Flair card as well. 

 A few people were talking about the crinkle ribbon technique yesterday using seamstress binding and coloring it with Glimmer Mist.  I pondered the process and wondered if you could get the same crinkle with spray starch and satin ribbon.  Well, it kind of worked.  I probably did not let it dry long enough or crumple it long enough, but it did get wrinkly.  I still used lots of adhesive and glue dots to make sure that the ribbon stayed where I wanted it, but I think this method did help the maneuvering of the ribbon.  Tell me what you think.


Stamps: Unity Kits of the Month 10/09 and 5/10
Paper: All paper is Stampin' Up!
Ink: Memento Black
Accessories:  White Satin Ribbon, Stardust Gel Pen, Dew Drops

Now make sure to check out the other Friday Fun Chicks to see what they did today:
