Moxie Fab Tissue Magic

Cath posted a fun challenge recently on the Moxie Fab blog - to use tissue or crepe paper on your card. The challenge runs through Monday, so there is still plenty of time to play. I knew I had some Jenni Bowlin crepe paper ribbon in my stash, so I pulled it out and started playing! The ribbon came in two designs of white, plus this fun red polka dot. I had a few different ideas, and I folded and twisted a bunch of ribbon before I finally decided to do a pleated band along the side of the focal image. Basically I just layered loops down the side, tacking down each loop to the one below it as I went. The cool thing about it is that the ribbon lays flat for mailing, then poofs out when you open the card for a neat effect. I also wrapped one piece of the ribbon behind the image to tie the card together. Thanks Cath for a super fun challenge!
Supplies:
Stamps: Our Craft Lounge
