In this video I’ll show you 3 Easy Ways to Add Ribbon to your Cards:

  1. Flat across adds no bulk! Perfect for wide ribbon or ribbon that has an obvious front/back.
  2. Add a faux knot – adds less bulk to your cards and is easier to tie.
  3. Wrap your ribbon all the way around and tie in a knot.

All easy ways to add ribbon to your cards!


Here’s a closer look at the finished cards…

 Berry Burst card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Whisper White: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Polka Dot Paper: 3″ x 4″

Watercolor Tips: 

  • To give the flowers more depth I started by coloring them in with a blender pen and Powder Pink ink (a very light pink), then I came back and colored with Berry Burst (a very dark pink) while letting some of the lighter pink show through.
  • After the coloring was done I added Clear Wink of Stella on the flowers to make them shimmer!
