Papertake - Fakes


Here' s my late, as usual, entry to the Papertake challenge. My fake bits are the ribbon and bows which are made from paper. I stamped the paper with a ribbon stamp that I have but I can't say I think it looks anything but fake. I've pieced the hat and coat on my Gorjuss girl. Not one of my favourite cards.

Wow fake bows you really cannot tell wonderful card Julie as always.

I like it - even if you don't. You're tempting me with the fold it ribbon template (or whatever it's called) - I have the flower ones but those bows are gorgeous. Another item on my ever growing wish list. GG looks gorgeous in her 'tapestry' style coat and hat.

Don't know why you don't like it Julie, it's so pretty. Love those ribbons, they really don't look fake.

I love the simplicity of this card. Your paper bows are just gorjuss (like the beautifully coloured image). Are you using a diecut or can you post a template please? I am inspired by your creativity and would love to borrow your idea. Lesley
