The Ways to Use It challenge this week is Altered Ribbon. I'd already used made the stencilled snowflake background (using a Dreamweaver brass stencil with embossing paste and glitter on a shimmery blue cardstock) and was wondering what to do with it, so when I saw the Altered Ribbon challenge I decided to just use a Nesties Ribbon Tag with a sentiment on it and alter some ribbon for it.
I stamped and embossed my sentiment and then decided to make my ribbon match so took plain white ribbon, rubbed the same ink I'd used for the sentiment over it and heat embossed it with the same embossing powder. The ribbon came out slightly warped from the heat gun so I had to tape it down quite tightly to keep it stretched out straight. IRL it matches the sentiment perfectly and is very sparkly but that's hard to capture in a photo.
I added some gems to the snowflakes to increase the sparkle!
It's also for this month's Christmas Card Challenge.
