This is one of those ideas that's making me wonder HOW I didn't think of it earlier? Because I've made similar cards where I've done a lattice or plaid pattern with washi tape, but somehow it never occurred to me to use ribbon. I suppose partly because it's hard to attach in strips that lie completely flat? Unless, that is, you have 1/8" wide Sookwang Scor-Tape, so you can basically make your ribbon into stickers, one piece at at time. I probably didn't need to sew all the way around the edges either, because those ribbons were on there securely... but I did anyway and I like how it looks. A fabric poinsettia and a retired Eyelet Outlet paper flower are all the focal point you need when you have NINE different ribbons, am I right? ;)
Hop over to Jingle Belles to see Stephanie's beautiful ribbon-bedecked card and start planning what you'll link up with us this fortnight!
