Pink fabric ribbon on greeting cards
The top right card features two strips of decorative paper over which I glued a piece of the fabric ribbon to which I had stitched a length of delicate ivory lace. I watercoloured the image (Digital Two for Tuesday) and glued it over the ribbon in between the two strips of decorative paper. The little greeting was adhered over this using 3D foam tape. I love how beautifully the lace complements the fabric ribbon.
On the lower left hand card, I layered two pieces of decorative paper to a substrate, added two strips of fabric ribbon, a length of lace and stitched them all in place with ivory thread using my sewing machine. The laser printed greeting was then stitched onto this element and this large element was adhered to my pink card front. I added a colour printed vintage rose image from Graphics Fairy using 3D foam tape. It still needed a bit of something so I added the little pink ribbon flower with a white button brad.
For the lower right hand card, I glued my two pieces of decorative paper to a substrate, added the ribbon gluing the ends to the back then glued this large element to my pink card front. I added a fussy cut watercoloured rose (Birdie Brown) and a laser printed greeting over the ribbon using 3D foam tape.
I have enjoyed the challenge of creating with this ribbon. There is much more on the roll so I anticipate I will be making a few more cards and may also incorporate it into some of my fabric postcards as the year progresses.
