CTMH Deal of the Day FREE Spool of White Organdy Ribbon Sunday, 21 June/ Birthday Card using CTMH With Love for Underwater Fish Card

Happy Father's Day!

Close to my Heart's Deal of the Day for Sunday, 21 June is a FREE 25 yard spool of White Organdy Ribbon 3/8" ($6.95 value!) with any Acrylix stamp set purchase!
Organdy ribbon adds such a soft sparkle to projects its sure to come in handy for all your projects. Did you know you can also custom dye your ribbon? Just take a bit of ribbon and either re-inker (in a small plastic jar like our Craft Jars) or your regular ink pad. If using re-inker simply dip and let dry. When I use a stamp pad, I take something like a sponge dauber and press the ribbon into the pad to pick up the color. Let the ribbon dry and I'd also suggest for polyester based ribbons a bit of heat setting with your iron.
The Happy Birthday card above is one I made for my son's 10th B'day. He loves fish and this card was just perfect for him. I didn't have any Autumn Terracotta organdy for the photo clip fish's tail so I custom dyed some Taffy organdy ribbon to match by clip by pressing it into the ink pad. This stamp set actually uses the flower set "With Love" to create an underwater garden!
