Do you love ribbon?? I love all types of ribbon – satin, silk, cotton, lace, seam binding, etc I love it all! Shhh...don’t tell hubby but I even have a stash of special ribbon trim that I really love, that I only use for super special projects! You guys can relate right?? Lol I probably use some sort of ribbon or trim on just about every paper crafting project I create. While I was at the Stampin’ Up! Annual Convention this past July, there was a neat project display showing some creative ways to use ribbon on cards. I thought I’d share these ideas with you today!
Creative Way #1
This first card is super simple but gives a big impact. It uses all 5 of the 2012-2014 In Color Stitched Satin Ribbon (Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, and Summer Starfruit). Five pretty bows stacked above a simple happy birthday greeting – soooo pretty! Don’t you agree?!
Creative Way #2
How sweet is this thinking of you card! It is just darling! And again super simple but with a big impact. This card has 2 adorable ribbon flowers made from the ¼” Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. Some fussy cut stems, leaves, and grass gives the card a whimsical feel.
Creative Way #3
This last technique is super cool AND is a great way to use up your ribbon scraps. It also uses the ¼” Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon but here the ribbon scraps are laid out in a chevron pattern. Chevrons are all the rage right now – so on trend! A simple embellished die cut label with a thank you greeting from the Perfectly Penned stamp set (available in wood mount and clear mount) completes the card.
