As promised, today I'm sharing a card that has a ribbon border using the same technique as with the Ribbon Wreath yesterday. Obviously, you need less ribbon for this. I have used the May Arts Sheer Iridescent Ribbon that flew out on the first show on Friday.
I've photographed this one at at couple of angles to try and show you the embossed background.
For the background, I dusted a piece of black card with my anti-static bag. I then stamped one of the flourishes from the Creative Expressions Beaded Elements Stamp Set using Perfect Medium. I added some Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set it.
I stamped the holly image from the Creative Expressions Let it Snow Stamp Set using Olive Archival. I popped a piece of Self Adhesive Film over the top and then cut it out using Spellbinders Floral Ovals. I removed the top sheet from the film and dipped it into Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Crystal Sparkle Glitter. I threaded an Idea-ology Bauble onto some Cobalt Jade Iridescent Sheer Ribbon, tied a bow and added it to the top of the oval. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using the same process but this time used Spellbinders Ribbon Banners to cut it out.
I used approx 1m of the same iridescent sheer ribbon to weave a border. Here's the link again on how to do the ribbon weaving. I used some super sticky tape to secure it.
I finished the card by adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl.
For those of you who missed out on the sheer iridescent ribbon, I'm going to try and put some similar packs together and pop them on Buy it Now on eBay (can't seem to load it on my Amazon Store). I'll post the link on here as soon as I've done it.
Thanks for stopping by.
