Technique Tuesday: Adding A Scallop Ribbon Border!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know what that means!!! I have a fabulous technique to share with you today and it’s super simple! Check out this adorable scallop ribbon border on this card. The cool thing about this is that you can get 2 cards for every 5 inches of ribbon. I cut the ribbon in half!!!

Scallop Ribbon Border,

This card is super simple and perfect for making multiples!! The pack of Brightly Gleaming Designer Paper has so many great prints that would all work in this same color scheme.

I started with a card base of Pretty Peacock measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. Next, I cut 2 pieces of Very Vanilla measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ (for the front and inside). Then, I cut the Brightly Gleaming Designer Paper into 4″ x 4″ squares. That means you can get 9 cards from 1 sheet of designer paper with no waste. YEAH!! I added Tear And Tape along the bottom of the designer paper and since it’s a perfect square it doesn’t matter where the bottom is. Then taking the Pretty Peacock Scallop Trim Ribbon, I cut it in half so I could get 2 cards for every piece. Press the half piece of ribbon into the Tear And Tape on the edge and trim off the extra on the ends.

Brightly Gleaming Designer Paper,

After adding adhesive all around the other sides of the designer paper, it is then added to the Very Vanilla piece. Next, I stamped the greeting from the So Many Stars Stamp Set in Celestial Copper Ink on the bottom. I am loving this shiny copper ink. With the coordinating Star Framelits, I die cut a star in Copper Foil Paper. You could also use the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements! The Fine Tip Glue Pen is amazing for adhering delicate items like this.
