Stamping on Ribbon

I am always in search of a diffrent and unique way to make my handmade cards.  I altered this vampire stamp in my last post.  This is my first project with him.  Isn't he cute?

Card Stock
Decorative paper
1-3 inch wide ribbon (depends on your stamp size)
Ink (permanent)

I first started by making my blank card the folded size is 4.25 x 5.5 I then cut a decorative sheet of paper down to 4x5.25 and attached it to the front of the card.

Take your ribbon and black some scrap-paper on the back and stamp your image.  This is a great way to test your image to see if it works. they way you want.  I loved the texture it offered an otherwise plain image, or plain ribbon.  Then attach your ribbon the the card.  I hope you enjoy...I would love to see your finished projects...

This project has lots of uses....Just make sure to use perminate ink.  If you use just plain ole black ink it smudges.
