Woven Ribbon

Hi Everybody,

Using  a Trellis dies to create the panel makes the card look extra special but have you thought about weaving your ribbon through it for another look ?

Once you have the ribbon in there you can lay it onto your card anyway round you prefer, and I have added several vidoes to show you how the look can change

For this card I have used the narrow satin ribbon from the Card Making Magic Collection and woven four different strips alternatively.

You can see the parts of the Trellis that the ribbon has gone through and the bow at the top is the finishing touch

The sentiment has been cut several times in black card and stacked together, then inked with Versamark and covered in clear embossing powder. Repeating this two or even three times will make your sentiment really sturdy and shiny/ I added mine to Vellum before adding it to the card front.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. I am a big fan of embossing powder and die cut sentiments. It always looks so dramatic, almost as if you used chipboard. Your card is lovely with the added texture added by the ribbon.

  13. This is SOOO VERY pretty & elegant looking!! I really like how just the ribbon being threaded through the die, it gives an entirely new look to it. I only have one question- you stated that you linked videos showing how it would look with the ribbon threaded different ways. I don't see that link. Is it because I'm viewing on my phone? I didn't know if you just forgot?
