Using My Costco Ribbon

A number of years ago, Costco had rolls of ribbon for sale. I loved it and received some for my birthday.  Unfortunately, the pattern is not on both sides which makes it difficult to use for bows.  Also, the colours don't quite match Stampin' Up colours and since I like to be matchy-matchy, it has sat in my cupboard with little use.  Today, Kristina Werner created a card for MACM (Make A Card Monday) that I knew would be perfect for my Costco ribbon.  Here's the little card I made for my brother and his wife's anniversary:
The card is 5" square a little larger than Kristina's and the inside square is 4 1/2" square.  It is hard to see my inside panel that is popped up on dimensionals.  I cut my heart with my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot software.  Since I don't have a wood grain background stamp, I used the Waves texture plate in my Big Shot.  (I was thinking I would use my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, but then realized that the square was too large for the folder.  I'm glad because I like the look of the wavy lines.) 

Thanks for looking,

Kim: I share the same sentiments about that box of Costco ribbon. Thanks for the inspiration - I'll have to use some of it up using this technique. Happy Summer! Jenn
