Birthday Friend Ribbon Cards

Posted by JennyPearce, 08 Oct, 2008

This design could be created in alternative colourways with alternative greetings, as shown.

(Products for both cards listed)

  1. Punch the X-Cut ribbon punch at 3.5cm intervals along the open edge of an A6 card. (With the 3.5cm mark being measured from the first slot) Weave through the slots with an assortment of metallic ribbons and cords and tape the ends to the inside of the card. Line the inside of the card with spare cardstock to hide the raw edges.

  2. Tie a bow for co-ordinating ribbon and attach to the centre of the threaded ribbons with an adhesive dot. Attach a length of glittery ribbon horizontally about 1cm down from the spine.

  3. Cut a 5cm x 11.5cm rectangle of brown cardstock with wavy scissors and mount onto orange card. Cut around leaving a narrow border of orange showing at the edges.

  4. Using the chipboard ‘birthday’ text, cover in glue and sprinkle with orange sugar coating. Allow to dry. Attach to the brown rectangle with foam squares.

  5. Colour a ‘Happy’ outline sticker with permanent orange marker pen and adhere above the word birthday.

  6. Prick a hole for the brad, above the letter ‘i’ in birthday and insert a floral gem brad, secure on the reverse.

  7. Attach the rectangle layer, slightly overlapping the top ribbon length. Add a chipboard swirl cut from the set and copper adhesive gem stones. Cut a chipboard swirl from the shapes and attach to the top right of the card.

  8. The Special friend card has been created in a similar fashion, using golds, purples and creams. The chipboard ‘friend’ is from the Papermania chipboard shapes and left their original colour, although this could be covered in glitter if you wish. (Products are also listed down the right side).
