Let’s Ride | Ribbon and Roses | Ali Skifton

Hello my crafty friends! It is Ali here with you today sharing an unique take on using a floral cut file. Most of you think that the floral cut files can just be used with Mother’s Day, wedding or other flower photographs. I am here to show you today that you can combine sassy and sweet together by using the new Ribbons and Roses Cut File.

I wanted to document the purchase of my new Harley Davidson helmet and leather jacket. If you look closely at the photo you will see a pink rose on my motorcycle jacket. I also have the same rose on the side of my helmet (you just can’t see it in this photo). Harley Davidson also uses a banner logo like this one in the cut file. I knew it was a perfect match for my photo when I saw the ribbon and rose cut file in the shop.

I used Felicity Jane’s new paper collection, Millie to back up the flowers and banner. I wanted to give the flowers some dimension so I used 3 different shades of pink to make them stand out more. I did the same with the leaves. I added enamel dots to the the centers of the flowers and sprinkled some around the banner. The title Let’s Ride was done with matching pink letter stickers from the Millie collection..

To tie in the black leather and helmet tough look I sprinkled black paint in 3 areas of my layout. I also used a black tab for my date and used 2 Scrappin Happy Studio flairs to bring the sassy and sweet combination together.

Spring is coming and I am excited to get back on the bike with my husband. Remember to be safe!

Love, Ali xoxo
