Create the illusion of depth and dimension on any project with this quick and easy hidden ribbon technique.
Hidden Ribbon Card Tutorial
Add Falling Leaves stamped images to a white panel with the Emboss Resist Colored Pencil technique. Be sure to visit this post for a detailed tutorial.
Carefully cut a slit wide enough to accommodate the width of the red satin ribbon. For best results, use a craft knife and cutting mat. You may find it helpful to temporarily place the ribbon over the image, and make a light pencil mark to indicate the width of the ribbon.
Trim the dark brown print quadrant to 4x5.25" and layer behind the embossed panel cut to 3.5x4.75".
Add a stamped sentiment with Earth Ink onto the front of the white panel. Adhere the panels to a folded 4.25x5.5" Falling Leaves Orange plain card base.
Embellish the ribbon with a gold leaf charm tied onto the red satin ribbon with a small piece of dark brown jute.
I made a second card featuring the In Bloom stamps with the same Hidden Ribbon technique.
