Cuddly Buddly Challenge “Check It Out”

Cuddly Buddly has a “Check It Out” challenge, you can find them here: that challenge asks that you include checks, plaids or ginghams in your project.  This card gave me fits.  I fully intended to have a normal card.  Okay, normal to me is a 5 x 7 card that opens from the right side.  Well as you will see it did not turn out that way.  I tried this new kind of bow (new for me) at the top of the card.  You take a strip of card stock smaller than your ribbon and put down red line tape then you scrunch the ribbon and the tape really holds well.  I think it came out wonderful and I was so excited.  I put down ribbon in the middle and that is when I think it all went wrong.  I turned my card.  I try never to do this since I know you can turn it and all of a sudden your card opens the wrong way and it did.  So after putting down my image I went to admire my handy work and open the card.  Well it opened,   but on the other side.  So I sat there and said "Lemons to Lemonade".  I thought and thought and came up with an easel card so I could save my work.  You would never know it was a lemon by the looks of it now.  Should have thought easel card in the beginning and did away with the drama. 

I used:
Cuddly Buddly – Cosy Frame2, Cosy Panel, and Snowman
White card stock
Background paper was a piece of scrap from my bin
Fibra markers
Dimensional tape
Double sided tape
Red line tape
Decorative Ribbon by Dolgen Corp
