Valentines Day Ribbon Card

I learned this technique to layer ribbon inside a punched or cut-out area from one of the blogs I saw. This is so unique and fun and looks gorgeous in real life.

The full card is beautiful. The Ribbon heart is inside the "Sweetheart" (120780) heart, stamped in Real Red classic ink. Then this was layered on the new luscious Glimmer Paper (121790) found on page 7 of the New Occasions Mini Catalog.
The card base is Real Red cardstock topped with several layers of the Blushing Bride Designers Series paper (117158). Each layer is punched using the Scallop Edge Border Punch (119882). The last treatment is the 5/8" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon (109052) tied into a knot.
Give the ribbon technique a try on any open image, the trick is to overlap on larger items as though it's weaved. Post your samples too my website so I can see what you have designed.
Make it a Great Day!
