Adhesive Cardstock + Ribbon = Fun!

Hey everyone!! 

Are you back for more paper and ribbon fun!! It is so much fun working with May Arts this week!


I think I discovered this ribbon about 2 years ago....and since then I have collected quite the stash :)


One of my ribbon drawers...no order to the chaos....I love looking at all the textures and colors. There is always a ribbon to match my DCWV paper that I am working with :)

Today's project uses this baby....


Adhesive Backed Cardstock...LOVE! This stuff is awesome for so many projects!! This particular stack is at Michael's stores right now. 


To make my ribbon covered card, I cut down a piece of adhesive backed cardstock to 5.5x8.5 and scored it in half at the 4.25 mark. The inside of the card will be the color of your cardstock. The outside will be covered with ribbon where the white, sticky side is!


Working with the sticky side, just layer whatever ribbons you want to create whatever pattern you want. This is a great way to use those ribbon scraps!


Trim the sides down.


Added a few alphabet stickers and that's it! Love the textures of all of these ribbons! And the adhesvie cardstock keeps the ribbon down and NO BUBBLES! Ribbon can often be tricky to stick down :)

Well I hope you all have a fabulous day!! See you back here tomorrow ;) And I think we will do a giveaway on Friday!! 

Fun, fun :)

  22. I love all of your ribbons and love the card. Looks like a 4th of July card. I am a ribbon hoarder and love to use it on my layouts. I have a layout that is all ribbon. I think that is one of my favorite ones. I scraplifted it from Keisha at abiteast.typepad.com.
