Ribbon and Die Cuts

Hi, It's Gini, and I have another fun project to share with you today, highlighting some of my favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon. This is a slider card, so the belly dancer from Whiff of Joy's Scheherazade (1001 Nights), moves across the card, and looks like she is belly dancing! How fun is that? It might be a little hard to read in the picture, but the sentiment under the slider says "Have a Royal Celebration" (also from the WoJ set).

(Can you see how she dances across the card?)

I used Spellbinders scalloped edge frame and wove burgundy silk ribbon through the holes. To me, this looks like some of the wonderful silk saris you might associate with belly dancers. I tied a large bow at the top, and added a velvet vintage poppy with pearl center over the middle of the knot. I love adding flowers, buttons or other embellishments over a large bow for more drama. I also colored my pearl with an orange copic to match my color scheme a little better.

Finally, I thought it would be fun to sew gold belly dancing coins on the edge of my punch.

Hope you enjoyed my card - it was so much fun to make!


  1. Super cute! Love all of the extra bling!
    True :D

  2. O my goodness, this looks so exotic. The moving image, the weaving of the ribbon in & out of the punched edges & that bow! wowzers!!! Wonderful!

  3. I absolutely love this one Gini. The colors are perfect and those images are stunning.


We'd love to hear what you have to say
