New Card Caravan Challenge and a Seam Binding Tutorial!

This is the card I made for our new Card Caravan challenge over at The Hybrid Chick.  The challenge is to do something birthday. I used the digital kit Every Day of the Year by Sugarplum Paperie.

Come join in on the fun at our challenge at The Hybrid Chick!

I didn't have a ribbon to match, so I died some seam binding using Glimmer Mist.  Such an easy technique.  Here's how:

Supplies you'll need:
Neutral colored seam binding or ribbon
small plastic zip closure bag
ink spray

1. Using a neutral colored seam binding (or ribbon), cut it to size.
2. Spritz some of your ink spray into the plastic bag

3. Add your seam binding and close the bag

4. Knead between your fingers until the color is absorbed by the fabric

5. Remove the seam binding from the bag and allow to dry before using on your project.

Simple, easy. And now you have a ribbon in the color of your choice. And the seam binding is crinkled to boot!
