What do you do when you have the paper for our card picked out and find that you have no ribbon to match? Well, just make it out of paper :). Ok, ok, it doesn’t look the same as ribbon, but it still has a fun and unique look.
I never seem to have exactly what I have in mind to make my projects and I refuse to run out and get one thing if I can possibly come up with some sort of solution. So, for this card, I couldn’t find ribbon or a brad to match lol. Easy enough, I just embossed a jumbo brad with the same black embossing powder that I used for the bird and branch stamp. as long as your brad is metal (I’ve never tried this on an epoxy brad, wonder if it would melt??), you can always emboss it to change the color to one that suits you!
I also used Staz-On ink for my card because I stamped on pearl paper. The Staz-On is a solvent based ink, so you can use it on many surfaces that you wouldn’t be able to stamp otherwise. These include acrylic and plastic surfaces. Love, love, love it! I want to carry it in my store soon!
