The Scrapbook Garden - Tulle Ribbon Cards


I really enjoyed making these Tulle Ribbon Cards for the Scrapbook Garden.
I always like black and white together , I always think it looks classy.
The ribbon is Bazzill Tulle in Raven (black) and White and it was perfect for this project.


I decided to use these rubber stamps as they always look good and they are two of my favourites


This image went well placed on an accent cut from the Crate Paper Portrait Collection that ive been working with of late, proving that they are not just for vintage work.




I placed the stamped images onto some Crate Paper Portrait collection 12 x 12 cut down , the pattern is called 'Pearls, its black with a teeny dot on it. I tied the Tulle ribbon around it and secured it with some tape at the back before matting it on black cardstock.
The bows tied beautifully first time and i didnt need to fidget with them they stayed where I put them straight away. That was a bonus for me as sometimes its hard to get ribbon to look perfect, but not with this , so I was very impressed. It feels nice and its lovely to work with, its soft too so i believe it would be nice used on lots of projects. I will certainly use it again.


The 2nd rubber stamp was that of a small quote with an image, again its one ive used many times but it always looks the part i think.

Thanks again for stopping by my blog , your comments are always appriciated.

WOW White on black is so effective and these pop but it is those ribbons that really are the cherry on top and give your cards that WOW factor. XOXO Zoe

Beautifully made Jaqi. Tulle is not easy to control. I have never seen it in ribbon form. I will look out for that in the future.
Regards Florence.
