Cardmaking Tip

Sometimes when we are making a card the leftover papers we want to use are not quite big enough to cover the card base. But follow this tip you will be able to use the small leftovers and still create a great looking card.

First you need to find a pretty piece of ribbon that coordinates with your papers. Now, place your papers on the card base as shown in the first photo. Then add 3 tiny pieces of the red tacky tape to the space between the papers. Next apply the ribbon to cover the space where the papers didn't meet. In the second photo you can see what a nice look this gives your card. When you mount the card sentiment be sure you use glue dots, they will stick best to the ribbon.
