Simple Ribbon Cards

Over the weekend, I also made several cards based on the same basic design. I placed a ribbon with the ends cut (not sure what that kind of cut is called) and added a focal point embellishment at the center of each card.

The key to these cards is that I used a card size that's smaller than the typical A2 card, which looks barren with so few embellishments. This size can be hard to find though. I snagged a bunch of them when I found them at Paper Source (there are a few of them around the Bay Area and in other areas of the U.S.).

On this one below, I used a strip of Stampin Up twill ribbon, an American Craft scalloped foam rectangle and a Martha Stewart cupcake sticker on a pale pink blank card from Paper Source.

Here I used the same Stampin Up twill ribbon with an American Craft cream foam circle, topped with a metal cupcake sticker on a cream blank card from Paper Source.

On this one, I added a strip of Stampin Up cream twill ribbon and a Stampin Up felt flower and leaves on a cream blank card from Paper Source.

Ha! I didn't realize the color was so off on that one, Tami. The cupcake is actually a silver metal embellishment. I won't make anyone eat green cupcakes. LOL!

Thank you, Rinda!
