Ribbon Card - Challenge 198 Pinterest Case LNS

This weeks's challenge with the Late Night Stamper's group is to CASE a card seen on Pinterest created by Brenda Keenan.
The card  I cased caught my eye because I thought it was such an interesting way to use scraps of  designer paper and ribbon to create Birthday presents.  A similar thing could be done for any occasion.

I kept the card looking pretty much the same, changing only the colors and the paper and ribbons.  The designer paper used is retired.

The card base is Early Espresso, layered with first Daffodil Delight, and then Whisper White which had been embossed up to about 1" from the top where the Sentiment was stamped using the Fancy Fan embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment before I embossed so I knew exactly how far up to 
emboss the paper.
Presents: Different pieces of coordinating designer paper were punched using the 1 3/8" square punch.  Then a coordinating ribbon scrap was wrapped around it and a knot tied at the top. The presents were attached to the card using dimensionals.

Stamps: Curly Cute
Ink: Early Espresso
Papers: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, 4 pieces of coordinating designer paper (retired)
Accessories: Fancy Fan folder, 1 3/4" square punch, 1/4" yellow and early espresso grosgrain ribbon scraps, dimensionals
