Remember that Ribbon ???

Hi Everybody,

A couple of weeks ago I told you about a fantastic ribbon bargain I bought at the Craft Show in Manchester.

Well for these cards I have kept to the plain white theme again but simply added in some colour using the ribbon

The Spellbinders used on the cards are listed below and they have all been made to the Hinged Card  style.

This bow is a Double Bow with Tails and  has been created with the  Bow Maker   that is now for sale in My Shop

I have used is a good quality 300gsm  card  that I bought at the craft show and it is from Anna Marie Designs

It is pure white, super smooth  and can go through some printers and the finished effect is excellent ... aaaaaaand it looks wonderful when embossed !!

The flower on this blue ribboned card was one of many that I sat one night and created while watching the telly.

I had some buttons in my "Stash" that can be covered and so I used the same ribbon to do that too and added it to the flower centre.

But it just shows what a difference a little colour can add to an all white card.

Quick and easy to do if you need a card in a hurry.

Then with the addition of some pearls ...  or the Diamante buckle the card can look really special for you to give with love ....

So there we have three plain cards all created to the same style ... all kept to basic white ... but all looking totally different to each other.
