Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a card that is loaded with texture! Adding texture to any card or layout adds extra oomph to your project. It literally makes you want to reach out and touch it! Using the We R Memory Keepers Ribbon Stitch Tool, I was able to add a really cool ribbon embellishment to my card. Check it out!
See how the ribbon is woven into the paper? The Ribbon Stitch Tool helps you create that look simply.
The Ribbon Stitch Tool has a top and bottom that holds together with a magnet. To begin, sandwich your paper between the two parts. It is very easy to adjust your paper and get the guidelines straight. When the placement is as you desire, push the tool down into the paper, using the guides. You will have to turn the tool, as the curve on the punch is curved in one direction.
This is what the paper looks like when it has been punched. You can continue your pattern down your paper, or simply stop here for a border.
The Ribbon Stitch Tool comes with small, plastic, threaders. These pieces make it much easier to weave your ribbon into your paper. Pull off the adhesive backing and place the plastic on each side of the end of your ribbon.
After weaving the ribbon through my patterned paper, I trimmed the ends close to the edge with a notch. It was a cute finish for this card. It would also be easy to adhere the ribbon ends on the backside of the paper.
I added a Pebbles sticker and a few leaves I made from patterned paper to the ribbon embellishment. It really makes the words pop from the card.
What kind of weaving pattern would you create?
