Stampin Up Using ribbon & embellishments

Cards are fun to make and receive in all shapes and colours and sometimes it is those finishing touches or embellishments that you add that really makes a card. The sense of touch is sometimes lovely to add to a card by way of a piece of ribbon or a few pearls.

So today I am showing you 2 cards using ribbon in different ways.

The first card was one I showcased yesterday. I cut two pieces of totally different ribbon and used them as a banner cutting an inverted "V" from the bottom. This become the focal point for the card and all the other elements colour coordinated accordingly.
The second card is using a wide piece of ribbon across the bottom of the card and then tying a thinner piece across the middle.  Again both pieces of ribbon are totally different contrasting colours yet by thing everything in to the ribbon it coordinates perfectly.
My favourite stamp set for doing this is Timeless Textures and if you are a Gorgeous Grunge fan then this will just take backgrounds to the next level. I could use this set all the time.
