Ribbon Accented, Layered Labels Greeting Card

Layered Labels For You Friendship Card angle

In honor of the In-Color Satin Stitched Ribbon Special (see details at the bottom), I created this ribbon-rich greeting card.

To create the ribbon background, I started with Whisper White card stock cut to  4-1/4″ x 5-1/4″.  I cut 6″ strips of each ribbon and flagged the end by folding it and trimming at an angle from the edge to the folded center.  I use the grid paper all the time, but some projects demand it’s use and this was one of them.   I centered the card stock on the grid paper and secured the first ribbon to the card stock in the center using the grid paper as a guide.  Continuing to use the grid paper to guide placement, I adhered the other ribbons using SNAIL adhesive and then attaching the upper ends to the backside.

Once the ribbons were in place, I attached the card front to a Whisper White card base to hide the raw edges of the ribbons on the backside.

The large label from the Layered Label stamp set was stamped with Midnight Muse and cut out with the Apothecary Accents framelit. I used a Stamping Sponge to sponge a little Midnight Muse around the edges so that it would standout from the white background.

The ‘For You’ stamp from the same set was stamped in Raspberry Ripple and trimmed out with the matching framelit.  Mini Silver Brads were added to the tag and Silver Glimmer Brads were added to the outside corners of the large label.

The labels were layered and adhered to the ribbon background with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
