West Coast Creators Regional Event Card

At my West Coast Creators team meeting last week, this was one of the make-n-takes that everyone made.  A little embarrassing, but after I'd designed and prepped this card, I realized that the Bashful Blue satin ribbon has already retired.  I would definitely recommend doing this same card with Real Red, Crumb Cake and Baja Breeze.... it is a great combo!  Then you could replace the satin ribbon with the Baja Breeze seam binding from the current mini!  Doesn't the coordinating envelope finish it off perfectly?

  1. No one had any idea that the ribbon was retired. And if you never said anything we still woudln't. ;-)

    greetings, martina

  3. I've been following your blog for a while and keep meaning to tell you I love your cards! As far as the retired Bashful Blue Satin ribbon, you could say you can dye it from the White Satin :-)

  4. Hey Angela! Great card and great projects on your blog. I might have to use your adorable tooth fairy container, my son is about to loose a tooth! This is too funny....I often search for inspiration online but for my most recent stamp a stack I designed my own projects (one with a spin from the mini (Plane & Simple)) ... I just came across this cupcake card that you designed for your downline and they are very much alike except for the colors and a few punches! Great minds think alike. I love your card and your color choices! You can see mine if you like, might be worth a giggle, I literally laughed out loud when I saw your because they are so much the same. Look what we can do with great products and tools! :) ~Alanna
