Ribbon Embellishments on Cards by Crystal

Friday, January 24, 2014

Hello RU Friends !
It's Crystal here and today is my first post for Ribbons Unlimited.  I am so happy to be on this Design Team!  I love the quality of the ribbon and I am thrilled to show you the different ways I like to use it. Today I am showing you how I embellished my card with ribbon in two ways, so let's get started.
Here is a look at my finished card and matching envelope:

I used the Turquoise Dazzle ribbon 5/8" and cut it 1 1/4" long.  I then fork cut each end and accordion folded the center and wrapped the accordions with floss.  I left the ends of the floss longer for the antennas!  This ribbon has such a beautiful sparkle so it makes a perfect butterfly!  Here is a close-up view...

I also used some Lime Organdy delight  5/8" ribbon tied this around my bottom strip layer.  This ribbon has beautiful satin edges and a sheer center with a subtle shimmer.

For the inside of my card I made another butterfly using the same steps as above:
