Ribbon Roses Trellis Card by Crystal

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Hello Ribbons Unlimited friends !!
It's Crystal here with more hand-made flowers from the high quality ribbon from Ribbons Unlimited Inc. Today I am going to share with you how I made my trellis card with these roses, super easy once you know the tricks! The ribbon I am using today is Ombre wired pumpkin color 1/1/2".
To make this card you need only one sheet of 8 1/2" by 11" card stock then cut 4 1/4" by 1" score at 51/2", cut a piece at 4 1/8 by 5 3/8" and then with the last piece cut 1/4' strips with your cutter.  
These will be the pieces we will weave.

Pick a frame die of your choice circles and ovals work too just use what you have , open card base and add the extra sheet we cut at 4 1/4" by 5 3/8" add a bit if tape runner to center and sandwich pcs together so when you die cut they will match up perfectly , I add a dot to inside layer so I know how to match up , center your die on the front and cut thru both pieces at once  set pc aside and add tape runner around inside of frame inside your card  , I lay my strips all going same way and then go back and weave the other direction , I always start in the center with my first strip on first direction

cover should look like this covering all the ends of strips

to make my flowers I pulled the wire  on one side of the Ombre pumpkin ribbon and then coil it to make buds and a full rose i use glossy accents to glue it secured and to add to front once I get my layout figured out , the wire in the ribbon is light weight and perfect for forming the rose edge to give a real look

my finished card I added some die cut leaves and some tulle to add to it and some adhesive glitter stickers , when you die cut your frame from the front it leaves that indent which just adds to this cool card

I hope you will give this a try with the Ombre ribbon it comes in several color combos and it has a beautiful shimmer to the ribbon that adds to the richness of your projects .
