So, I went to Carousel Rubber Stamps in Dartmouth the other day...just to pick up some 6x6 square envelopes for a class I was having...but lo and behold...Deja had these gorgeous ribbon weaving punches in stock. My jaw nearly hit the floor as I didn't think I could get them locally and they cost a fortune on-line. So, for a mere $14, I got this beautiful punch. Now, I'll warn you, before you run over to CRS and buy your own...it is HARD to punch through cardstock. I ended up doing this card on the floor and using my heel to punch it! Deja did tell me I would probably have to do that. Doing it on the floor works ok, but it does make it hard to line everything up perfectly...maybe next time I'm there I'll ask her for a tip on that. Anyhow, she had beautiful cards with these borders punched around them, and little gems/crystals in the centre, so I was inspired to use up some old gems I had sitting around to make this card. The card is made with Purely Pomegranite and Always Artichoke. Now I just have to figure out how to do the ribbon weaving with it...and how to keep it straight!
