Here's an easy way to gather up ribbon on a card using the mat pack.
Punch two holes at each spot for gathering the ribbon.
Then sew over the ribbon twice with matching embroidery floss or twine. It is fine to pierce the edge of the ribbon just to anchor it in place. Put extra ribbon in between each hole for the 'rouching' as you go along.
The Stampin' Up! catalog inspired me to use this stamp from the Baroque Motifs set. The Stamp-a-mah-jig aided in lining things up. Each image is embossed using Bordering Blue Craft Ink and clear embossing powder. The top image is embossed in copper on transparency film. I cut it out and attached with a brad and a little chipboard as a spacer.
Thanks for visiting today!
