The Holy Family

A quick post...this is a card I made on Sunday for the SCS Featured Stampers challenge. I love how this turned out, but I need to create a more postal friendly card with this fabulous stamp set. The ribbon and the brad make mailing a bit challenging. Come back later this week or weekend to see my new design with this stamp set. Seems like many are using the topnote with this stamp so I may try something new...

I cased this card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=93708 from Dawn's gallery. Click for more info on the FS challenge. Have a great Wednesday!

love this card-it caught my eye on scs as well. the image is great on the top-note die
I just bought these same brads on sale-how do you attach them?
did you just run your ribbon through and flatten the prongs?

Mary- I place my grommet where I want it, hold it and the card together and then turn both face down on a hard surface. I push on the cardstock around the grommet until the prongs pop through the backside. A bone folder helps. To get my ribbon inside the grommet, I did not flatten the prongs; I turned the card front side & threaded ribbon through each side, easing back the grommet as needed. Last I flattened the prongs. It wasn't a quick process & maybe there is an easier way but I don't know one.

Oh Marilyn - this is just gorgeous. What lovely colors and your ribbon and grommet is such a lovely embellishment to accent this wonderful Christmas card.
