A blessed Sunday to you all! I’ve got another simple bow for you today…and I’m gonna call this one SVCAS. Maybe that’s a stretch…but it is what it is, peeps!
This card uses a stamp I borrowed when at an LSS – I wanted to use it for background paper sometime so had stamped a bunch. Not a clue who makes it! Nor the sentiment, that was from ages back, way before the days when I thought it was even remotely important to know who made what. LOL. Nonetheless – it’s the ribbon I want to talk about here.
First step is laying down adhesive for the cross piece of the ribbon on the panel it’s attached to. Before laying down the long one though, lay the piece you’ll make the criss cross bow from. That way it’ll be attached and stay put! If you want banner flares on the ends, you might try cutting them now, it could get harder later.Then fold over one side, and put a little adhesive under it; I recommend a little ScorTape or a glue dot, you won’t want liquid adhesive, and you also want something that will really stick.
Fold over side two, attach the same way.
Using a piercer (I have no idea why Tonic calls it a craft pick. lol), make a hole for the brad. Holepunches may go through some ribbon, but not this yummy May Arts satin.
And you’re done! Attach the panel to your card and you’re done. It’s a good flat technique, just make sure you don’t use supergiant thick brads or you defeat the purpose of a flat bow.
Did you see this week’s vlog yet? They’re baaaack, at least for now – I’ve had a couple topical videos to make by special-request of one of our partners
And now for that candy I’ve been taunting you about!
Tonight I’m going to go through all my blog comments since the hop, and do a random.org to pick a winner for a BIG YUMMY BAG OF RIBBON! It’ll be mostly May Arts – though I might include some others too. I’m trying to wrangle my way out of a ribbonfest around here, and want to give away goodies to one of my faithful followers! You can go through the week’s posts today if you’d like, though it was a lot easier doing it throughout the week – subscribe and you’ll get notified of my new daily posts – and when there’s more candy Stay tuned for the winner to be posted tomorrow…it’ll make someone’s Monday a GOOD DAY!
