Isn’t this a much prettier ribbon treatment than the one I showed you yesterday? At Leadership Conference last month, Shelli Gardner, CEO of Stampin’ Up!, revealed her secret: pull a thread from one end and push the ribbon the opposite direction. I did that from both ends, since I’m not certain how much pulling that single thread (or perhaps a couple) can take.
A length of Sticky Strip across the card is the perfect no-mess adhesive. Simply push the gathers into the strip. It’s even possible to pull the ribbon off and reposition it, if necessary. I left the ends loose and frayed for additional “shabby chic.”
This card makes me think of an Easter bonnet! ETA: I forgot to mention that this card was inspired by my stampin’ sister Cindy E at Stampin’ Addicts!
