Holy Cow my Monday has flown by!  I didn't get back from Founders until late last night and I've been busy catching up on work all day.  Today will go down in history as the FASTEST Monday ever. 

I'm excited to share this card with you.   I loved using the 7/8" Cotton Ribbon to make my "Mummy" impersonation.  I took a piece of cardstock and wrapped it using the Cotton ribbon and kept it in place by using two pieces of Sticky Strip.  I just made sure it was tight enough so that the ribbon didn't buckle around the cardstock.  

I then took the Googly Ghouls stamp set and stamped the mummy with Basic Black Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing powder.  I attached this onto a few Circle punches using a piece of Linen Thread and a pretty Vintage Faceted button.  I love how these buttons look on cards.

 TIP:  I used the stamp set Monster Munchies and stamped the words with Basic Black Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder.  I cut the words separately and added a word from the stamp set Fabulous Phrases.  Once they were all cut out separately, I sponged around all of the edges and roughened them up just a tad bit.  I used my Hot Glue gun to keep these in place on the Cotton Ribbon.  

TIP: Try wrapping the 7/8" Cotton Ribbon around a candle and embellish just the same to make a fun Halloween Table Arrangement.  Wouldn't this be fun for a Halloween party? 

Below you will find all the supplies I used.

  1. Hi Jan,
    It’s called a “frog”. You can find them in antique stores in all different sizes. They use to be placed in vases to keep flowers upright. ;).
