You can cut ribbon you say??? Well, this technique tutorial is about an easier way to make a "bow" and save some ribbon as you don't have to use a long length of ribbon to go all the way around the backside of the cardfront too!! It's not really a bow per se......well, you'll see....
Cardstock, ribbon, stamps glue dots, embellishments
Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to go the length of the card plus have some left for tying. Tie the ribbon around your finger......I tied my ribbon with one long side and one shorter side so that my knot would be off center on my finished card.
Cut loop of the ribbon on the bottom of the loop...the knot is on the top..... while it is still on your finger. Cut ribbon at an angle to help reduce fraying.
Glue long ends on back of cardfront. You will have to attach cardfront to standard card to hide the back of the cardfront. Finish your card!
