Cricut Circle Challenge #10

Here is an A2 card I made for the Cricut Circle Challenge #10.  We were asked to make either a tag or a card using Jana Eubank's sketch below:

I couldn't find a ribbon from my stash that was the right color or the right width, so I made my own - quite accidentally LOL!  I took a one inch tall strip of cardstock and double punched it using a Martha Stewart puncher.  I liked the effect, but thought it was missing something, so......

....I threaded a narrow ribbon through and cut half an inch over the length of the
cardstock on both sides.

Here's another one I made using the same puncher but different ribbon and different color cardstock.  I liked how these turned out I might just experiment more with my other punchers! So easy to do - try it! 

Cricut cuts:
*postage stamp image and shadow - Base Camp
*scalloped oval and shadow - Lacy Labels
*"Seasons Greetings" - Martha Steward Seasonal Cake Art
*bells with layer - Wrap it Up

Once again, thanks for stopping by!

I love your card! What a clever way to use ribbon! I also love your color choice.

Thanks, Linda! The mat looked like it was orange but I swear it was red! I think it was the lighting in the room I took the picture in LOL!
