Silky Ribbon Curtain Card - WT386 SCS Challenge

I'm a Pinterest addict. I've said it. It's out there. I LOVE it! There is so much inspiration and fun things and recipes (oh my gosh - the recipes!!!!). Anyway, I saw a wonderful window card on Pinterest using ribbon as curtains and I immediately knew that I needed to try it with the French Roast A Muse Studio Silky Crush Ribbon. (*Note - I just checked my Pinterest link so I could credit the original designer and it doesn't link to the correct website - I hate when that happens. My apologies as I give full credit to the idea to the original creator and I'm sorry I can't link to it. If  you know her or him, please let me know.)

So back to the card, I cut a piece of 1/4 inch wide cardstock and used red-line tape to "attach" the curtains to the back and front. The "tie-backs" are french roast twine. Isn't it divine? The Silky Crush ribbon is PERFECT as a curtain.

I thought the card needed a little something more so I popped up a valance made with the scalloped edge dies (I don't use these dies nearly enough so am entering this card in the "Dust it Off" WT386 Challenge). The outside of the card is the inside of the house and the inside of the card is the outside. The sky is made with blueberry gingham and there are birds flying across as well as clouds drifting across. I love the sentiment and birds from the a│s stamp set, clever girls, don't you? :)

I had so much fun making this card as did my class (although the curtains took some fussing to hang correctly). What do you think? All supplies used are from A Muse Studio and can be purchased safely and securely at

Thanks for popping by my blog! Have a most wonderfully creative day!!
