I started with a digital background cut file from "Just Nic" (Stacked Rectangles Background) and adhered patterned paper behind it in different colors and patterns. Next I placed my photos on top and matted these with more patterned papers from the same collection. I always adhere my photos with just one single strip of double sided tape in the middle thus giving me the chance to place my embellishments behind them later on.
I've used both die-cuts and stickers to tuck behind my photos:
And how cute is this card?!
I also added some ribbon I had left from a swap with May Arts we once did. I used Imaginisce's wonderful I-Magicut - Ribbon Cutter and Sealer to cut and secure the ends of the ribbon.
Here's how the ribbon looked beforehand:
Then I placed it inside the I-Magicut, closed the top and pressed the button a few seconds so the wire inside the tool would heat up and cut through my ribbon and sealing it at the same time:
And here's how it looked afterwards:
Amazing right?! I really love this tool! Whenever I use ribbons for my projects the I-Magicut is the first tool I grab.
