EAD Designs Monday Hop ~ Coffee Birthday!

***If you are looking for My Creative Time's Imagine That Monday, click HERE***

Hello Paper Peeps!  This is my second post of the day and both projects coordinate!  Welcome to EAD Designs Monday Hop!  If you arrived here from the super creative Lauren of Lauren's Creative, then you're in the right spot!  But if you just popped in to see me then you certainly want to head over to EAD's Blog for the start!  Make sure to leave a comment along the way for this week's giveaway!

Today I made a cute birthday card with one of my favorite color combos, dusty blue and brown!  I used my Imgine for the my pattern paper.  Then added the cute little EAD stickerz right on to the blue so it would show through the stickerz.  You can get EAD stickerz on white or clear background, I usually get clear.




I also did an effect that my friend Katie of Crafting with Katie did a couple of week ago.  But of course I did with a twist! I cut a strip of paper about 2/3 the width of the seam binding ribbon. Then I used my ATG on the paper and adhered it to the ribbon even with one side. Next I ran the ribbon through a paper crimper. The side with the the paper stays crimped, but the part with no paper backing is just like a little ruffle!
