Tuesday Tutorial - Floral Ribbon Threader

Hi Everybody,

This is one very pretty die from Spellbinders and its name if the A2 Floral Ribbon Threader.  The card it produces is not a large one but there is no reason why you couldn't add it to a larger base if you so wished.


Spellbinders Supplies:


Other Supplies:

Create your card base with the #7 A2 Matting Basics A and emboss one panel with a pattern of your choice



(Please remember that #1 is always the smallest die in any Spellbinders sets)

With #8 cut a panel in your chosen color

With #8 and #7 placed together cut the detailed panel

Then place the #3 die from A2 Matting Basics into the centre and pass through your machine again

This will create a frame for you to match the white panel from the previous step

Thread some narrow ribbon that will pass through the holes all around the frame

Finish off in one corner and tape the ribbon ends together

Fix the solid panel to your card base with foam tape for dimension

Add foam pads to the back of the detailed panel and add it to the top of the solid one making sure that the curved edges marry up

You can see in the photo the shadow that this depth creates and adds more interest to your designs

Stamp and emboss your sentiment onto some blending card and with the smallest rectangle die cut it out

I added a ribbon bow to the bottom of the card and glued a pearl to the knot.

Then arranged my flowers to the top right corner and sprinkled them with glitter.

It may not be a very big card but it is a very pretty one that would suit many occasions

And if you struggle to get a pleasing look to your floral displays then maybe I can help you solve the problem in the form of a video .... Adding Flowers to Cards 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  22. Wow Christina that card is stunning right up my street, just looked at the tutorial for arranging flowers and those three cards are beautiful. I have spent all day making just two cards they are lovely but they take me so long to make, and I just can't master the stamping. Your inspiration is amazing thank you.
    Kind regards
