Faux Silk

These are the projects from my monthly technique class.  This month, we did Faux Silk which is a super-easy , but WOW technique.


The first card above features the Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper on Rose Red cardstock with accents of Black and White.  Stamp sets used are Embrace Life and the Hostess Set, A Little Somethin.


Next, we made a card front with the same stamps and paper, but added a Kiwi Kiss base and the double-sided Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon.



And this is what the finished projects look like.  Here are the directions for Faux Silk if you would like to give it a try:
