Make It Monday - Detail Glitter Technique + CAS-ual Knots

This was a super fast & easy card. I have been playing with ribbon quite a bit this week and had the idea of knotting ribbon to form a wreath. The CAS-ual Friday challenge to use knots on a card prompted me to actually do something with this idea.

CFC81: Create a Clean And Simple project that features a knot or knots.

Because I was keeping it clean & simple, I adhered the wreath to a white cardstock panel and finished it off with a Think Big sentiment from Papertrey Ink. It didn't feel finished to me, so I decided to take Erin Lincoln's advice on her Make It Monday video tutorial and added a little glitter detail.

 I cut a piece of 1/8"score tape to fit under the word "wishes" and sprinkled green glitter over it. Amazingly, I did not get glitter everywhere else!

The sad truth is it took me longer to decide which color glitter to use than it took to make the card.

Here is a close up of the wreath, made with a 1/8" red diagonal stripe ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Really Reasonable Ribbon just announced a 4-day sale on their already great prices - details are on their blog here!
