Elegant Flourishes


Do we have any ribbon fans reading? You may know that I'm a huge fan of ribbons. They add so much to a card and project, and let's not forget all the varieties! There are dozens of different shades, widths, textures- each of them have a different feel and look that puts the finishing touch on your crafting project. My all time favorite: grosgrain ribbon. I love what it brings to my cards and it's so easy to create bows with them! 

My card today showcases not only a bow, but also a pleated ribbon technique towards the bottom. This technique was all over blog land a few years ago, but I haven't seen it around recently. I still love how it looks- thinking I should bring it back again. :)
Below is the link to the video on how to achieve this look- note: the video is two years old, so it's not the best quality.

In closing, I have a brand new Question of the Day for you, DeNami friends. I'm curious to see your answers- feel free to leave a comment below with your answer! 

Have a terrific rest of your Wednesday. Thanks for joining me here on the DeNami blog today!

Girl. this card is stunning!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

My favorite way to use ribbon (grosgrain being my fave too)is making bows and "dividing lines" on my cards. I can't resist a big yummy bow!!

I love the look of this! If I DO use ribbons...I like to knot them up!

Lisa Elton said...

WOWZERS Paulina this is divine! Love your scrumptious ribbon treatment!

Grosgrain ribbon makes the BEST bows! That's my favorite to do. But I'm seeing A LOT of knotted ribbon on cards, might give that a try too ;)

Elegant is my favorite style & you've nailed it here! Love your design, the sparkle & of course, the ribbon! I must have 1000 yds of ribbon, so yes, I love it! Usually I just make bows, but I've always liked pleated ribbon & never got good at it. I'm going to check the video & try again--thank you!

I LOVE ribbon!!! I love making bows with satin ribbon, knots with twill ribbon and double or I call them butterfly bows with seam binding. I don't have any grosgrain ribbon...I'll have to pick some up from DeNami I think ;)
