Welcome back to another Wednesday 201
Have you discovered that ribbons add so much to our paper crafts? Here are a few ways that I have used ribbon on my cards.
I used twine on this card to go along with the fall theme. I vary the type of ribbon I use according to the type of theme/mood the card has. For an elegant card I would go to the satin ribbon first. For a casual look I would use twine, cotton ribbon, twill or gross grain depending on the theme. When I create masculine cards the choices are the same as the casual cards. For feminine cards I use more satin, lace, seam binding and cotton ribbons.
The next two cards use ribbon to move the eyes across the card. The first card has a wide ribbon that had the effect of dividing the card into three spaces. That uses the rule of three. Threes are also pleasing to the eye. You can look back through the samples and see how I have applied this rule. Sometimes I use three of the same item, sometimes I use groups of three and then as in this top card there are cards with three 'spaces'.
In the second card you can see that it again employs the 'z pattern' to move the eye across the card.
I know this is a very long post. I hope that it has been interesting. Have fun with ribbon, you will find that it can add so much interest to your projects!
Have a blessed day,
