Ribbons and lace are a super addition to cards! I recently nabbed a bag of ribbon scraps for a $2 at a yard sale with long and short pieces and I pulled out a few with colors that matched my manila folders and Graphic 45 card making session.
You can tie ribbons around the fold of your card (and if you tie them a little loose you can move them where you want) or add a bow somewhere on the outside that makes sense to you.
Need an extra finger to tie that bow and now on around?
The nice thing about ribbons and lace is that if you make a card and decide it still needs something, or maybe you have too much space, etc, add a bow and viola! Perfect.
Here’s a tip about cutting frames:
The G45 papers used frames around some of the images. I wanted to mix and match (paper packs make mixing and matching easy because they are color coordinated) so I fussy cut the women in the had and put her in a different frame. I kept the words that were inside the frame for another card and in order to do that without getting out my craft knife and mat, I simply cut a straight line. Fast. Simple and not really noticeable when I glued the card together.
Inside the card just in case you were curious:
Remember, when you are card making or scrapbooking: THERE ARE NO SCRAPBOOK POLICE! Have fun! Experiment! Simply do it your way!
