Hello Ribbons Unlimited friends !!
It’s Crystal here with more hand-made flowers from the high quality ribbon from Ribbons Unlimited Inc .Today I am going to share with you how I made my trellis card with these roses , super easy once you know the tricks .. The ribbon I am using today is Ombre wired pumpkin color 1/1/2″
to make this card you need only one sheet of 8 1/2″ by 11″ card stock cut 4 1/4″ by 1″ score at 51/2″ , cut a pc at 4 1/8 by 5 3/8″ and then with the last pc cut 1/4′ strips with your cutter , these will be the pcs we will weave
pc a frame die of your choice circles and ovals work too just use what you have , open card base and add the extra sheet we cut at 4 1/4″ by 5 3/8″ add a bit if tape runner to center and sandwich pcs together so when you die cut they will match up perfectly , I add a dot to inside layer so I know how to match up , center your die on the front and cut thru both pieces at once set pc aside and add tape runner around inside of frame inside your card , I lay my strips all going same way and then go back and weave the other direction , I always start in the center with my first strip on first direction
once you have to all weaved trim off over hand
next add double stick tape around the frame and adhere your cover pc
cover should look like this covering all the ends of strips
to make my flowers I pulled the wire on one side of the Ombre pumpkin ribbon and then coil it to make buds and a full rose i use glossy accents to glue it secured and to add to front once I get my layout figured out , the wire in the ribbon is light weight and perfect for forming the rose edge to give a real look
my finished card I added some die cut leaves and some tulle to add to it and some adhesive glitter stickers , when you die cut your frame from the front it leaves that indent which just adds to this cool card
inside see how making the extra panel hides your messy ends on the weaving
I hope you will give this a try with the Ombre ribbon it comes in several color combos and it has a beautiful shimmer to the ribbon that adds to the richness of your projects .
