I had a couple of questions about how I tied the ribbon on tag 18 for my Snowflake & Ribbon Tag Advent Calendar you can see here.
This ribbon wreath is made by tying 5 simple knots in the same direction. If you are a visual learner like me, head over to RRR and take a look at the step by step photos I have posted there.
The simple knot is a great way to manipulate ribbon into shapes on your cards. This same technique is used to create this heart out of the double-faced hot pink satin ribbon. A few more details and the steps are over at RRR.
The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Kissing Booth line, The sentiment panel is made up of a Spellbinders Label Ten, Fiskar's heart punches and a PTI sentiment and die.
Just to really demonstrate the versatility of this technique, I knotted a piece of the red diagonal stripe ribbon into a chevron for this card.
I want to highlight the chevron shape, and knew the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge this week is to feature scoring, so scored another chevron line below & above the ribbon. A piece of red cardstock is also rough cut with the chevron shape to border the bottom of the card. The sentiment is created with LilyBee Alphabet stickers and a punched heart.
CFC82: Create a CAS project that features scoring...and no, the fold on your card does not count *wink*
You can really see the score line here.
