Torn and Tied

ETA-I fixed the photo to enlarge like it should for detail. There was a malfunction yesterday.

I got so involved with making a last minute birthday card for my hubby's co-worker that I forgot to post. I looked thru my queue to see what I had that was easy and found this.

Plain dark green card stock, folded and ink distressed is then layered with a torn piece of pattered paper after inking it a bit too. Cut a piece of medium red and razor the edge up a bit after inking. Before attaching this piece, wrap some gauzy ribbon around it and tie in a box or knot. I layered two pieces in contrasting colors. Cut the edges of the ribbon pretty and layer this piece.

Last thing to do is attach a metal word brad to a layer of the same red above and glue this to the front. Using up the scrap can be fun and fast. See ya tomorrow.


  1. Jan, this is my absolute favorite of all the cards you posted recently. Simple and stunning. I will be CASEing this for sure. (and I don't like red, and don't really do Christmas!)


Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
