Happy retirement card

I've always wanted to try making these corkscrew ribbony thingies, but just never got around to it until now.  They're really easy too.  Check out this tutorial.   I can't decide if it was more fun making the card itself or 'staging' it when I took the pic!  The background is done by just swiping a few different Versacolor cubes over the card.  For the palm trees I scrunched up brown handmade paper and cut them out with pinking scissors.  The hammock I crocheted using jute cord from RRR.  It's just a few loops and knots strung together, so probably doesn't really qualify as crocheting, but you'll get the idea anyway.
I hope you're inspired to have a go with the 'Korker' ribbons.


  1. A lovely card Tilly. The ribbons look like fun and the props are ideal. Such a cute deckchair. Have a great weekend.

  2. lovely card and yes the staging is amazing.... I'm not that clever or have the time to do this Tilly.
