Hello there ribbon friends. It’s that time of the year again. I’m talking about tackling those holiday projects. Today I’d like to share a couple of cards where I used some ribbon and glitter to add some “shine” to these Holiday greetings.
1. Create your card base. Mine measured to 4 ¼ x 5 ½”
2. Cut a strip of the candy stripe ribbon and adhere it on the center of the card front horizontally. Cut staggered length of the pastel green satin ribbon to create the Christmas tree, don’t adhere yet.
3. Adhere a strip of adhesive on the center of the ribbon strips, pour glitter over it, press to adhere the glitter and dump the rest back into the container or on a scrap of paper. Use a paint brush to clean off the rest of the glitter on the ribbon. Decorate the tree with die cut and stickers.
4. For the frame card- Adhere some of the pastel green trim around the card front using strips of adhesive.
5 Adhere another layer of adhesive over the center of the ribbon frame and add glitter, brushing off the excess. Decorate with stickers and die cuts.
Here are some pictures of the final product….
Thank you for joining me today and I hope this inspired you to add glitter to your favorite trims to make your next crafting project “sparkle “ even more.
