More Congratulations

Another congratulations card! I realised the other day that I have absolutely none in my little stockpile and I imagine will need some in the future, so here we are.

This card follows the below sketch from Clean and Simple:


I actually made this card last night sans raffia. I left it on my desk and when I came in tonight to photograph it I thought to myself - how mundane! And it doesn't even follow the sketch! But my original problem was that I didn't have any light purple ribbon (a situation I intend on remedying this weekend!) but a quick rifle through my raffia drawer (yes, I have THAT much raffia) and the result was a happier card. I actually tied this one ON to the card, and didn't just glue it on the back because I have so much of this stuff I don't mind wasting a bit on the inside, and used a bit of glue to adhere it into place. I tied a double knot and cut off the ends.

Size of card: 4" square
