Darling Details Day #5: Gotta Love the Ribbon Border Die!

Welcome to Day #5 of my Creative Connections presentation of  Darling Details Bundle.  Today I'm sharing a card that features the super cute "ribbon border" die.

Of the many reasons I was drawn to the Darling Details Bundle,  was the "ribbon border" die.  It really caught my eye.  I thought it was charming and cute.  Let me tell you...it did not disappoint.  I love it!

DOstamping Tip - alter Darling Details Dies Ribbon Border from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #stampinup

DOstamping Tips for Ribbon Border Die:

  • I recommend using a 1" x 6" strip of cardstock when die cutting the ribbon border die shape.  The die is actually thinner than 1", but you'll enjoy the extra area for adhesive.
  • For ribbon selection, it works best with 1/4", but you can also use 1/8" (see my suggestions below)
  • Also - I found the "stiffer" the ribbon, the easier it was to thread through the die cut.  Maybe use a needle to thread the Metallic Woven Ribbon (2022-2024 In Colors) - that would help.
  • For pattern ribbon, I found that flipping the die cut over to the back side will show off the pattern better, so give that a try.  (see black/white 1/4" gingham ribbon at the top of the photo)

DOstamping Ribbon Selections:

Includes 1/8" & 1/4"


Also - what do you think of this color combo?

I'm totally in love with the color combo I came up with for this card!  The black really sets off these fun and cheery colors.
