May Cardmaking - flag ended ribbon and a scallop circle

Our second card featured flagged ends on the ribbon instead of the paper!! Easy to do!! Simply fold ribbon in half and trim from edges to the folded center.  Voila!!
We started by adding two small strips of coordinating paper to each long side of our 2" x 5.5" strip of decorative paper which we then glued to the top portion of our card front.  The length of ribbon was flagged on both ends, folded in half and double sided tape was used to keep them properly aligned. This element was then adhered over the decorative paper using double sided tape as well.

Next, we watercoloured the images and mounted them to the scallop circle punchie (SU) once it was dry.We used 3D foam tape to adhere the scallop over the ribbon to simulate an award ribbon - like First Prize!  The greeting was layered punchies (SU) that were glued together and then mounted to the card front with 3D foam tape.  Two were embellished with a clear glitter pen - StarDust Clear - by Sakura.

One of the cards has the focal element on the opposite side and maybe next time I will consider using a portrait orientation to see how well that works.The images are by:  cupcake and flower - Black Berry Jelly and the little toad stool - Arthur's Clipart.  

I made a Christmas version of these for anyone wanting to make a few Christmas cards.  Check it out here.
