Hi everyone, if you are like me, you LOVE the beautiful ribbons and twines which are available. If you are also like me, you might not use them very often. I tend to tie the odd bow on my card but that’s about it. I was sitting at my craft table last night looking at the gorgeous ribbons and saw the 1/2″ (1.3cm) Purple Posy Ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack. I thought how pretty it is and then realised I had never used it! That had to change immediately. Before I knew it I was weaving the ribbon and created this beautiful background panel. It looked so lovely.
I paired the ribbon background with the gorgeous peony from the Prized Peony stamp set and a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. I love this stamp set! Don’t get me wrong, I love both of the stamp sets! I love the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set has basic sayings. It’s a staple in my collection.
The peony was coloured with the Purple Posy and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and finished with a coat of Wink of Stella. I added a simple embossed sentiment and some Pearls to finish the card. As the ribbon background is quite busy, I didn’t want to add too much more.
Here’s the card…
The weaving didn’t take too long and it certainly made me happy to use more of this pretty ribbon. I hope you’ll give this technique a go.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
