Ric Rac Ribbon Background

Hello bloggers!  This post is showcasing the Ric Rac Ribbon Background.   While it is a 5" x 5" square background, you can easily use it inside of other shapes or even behind the apertures from yesterday's launch.  This background is also what I would describe as being gender neutral so you can use it for so many different card designs.  It is really fun to offset the ric rac pattern too as I have done in this sample, add in several colours and you can really go to town!  The fall away pieces also make a great addition to shaker cards!  I will remind you to leave a comment on this post if this set would make a nice addition to your die collection.  We are at the end of day two, but there are still a couple more dies to go starting here tomorrow morning at 6am!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue

Wow another amazing card and new die. It’s getting harder to chose a favourite. Love how this Ric Rack Ribbon die is just the right size. It has so many possibilities and another gender neutral choice too. I can imagine playing for hours offsetting the die cuts and making new looks.
Genius.

Thank you for another great day of new dies and gorgeous samples.

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and although there are a lot of elements they all blend together seamlessly. I wondered where the background for the 12 noon posting came from and now I know! The Ric Rac Ribbon Background looks to be quite versatile and I love the way it looks here.
