Die Cut Ribbon Card

Hi there!  Today I'm sharing a little tutorial of how I put
together some recent 'applique' style cards using ribbon and dies.
The ribbon size needed will depend upon the size of dies that you're using.

The ribbon size that you will need to use will depend upon what size die you're wanting to use.
For this card I've used a 1.5" striped ribbon by May Arts; paper, stickers and dies
by Doodlebug Design and adhesives by Xyron.

Place adhesive on the backside of your ribbon using the 3" Sticker Maker.

Remove the top film only.  Place die over the ribbon and then run through your
die-cutting machine.  I have also found that using the silver shim plate (Sizzix) with 
this project, also helps to make a cleaner cut.

Carefully peel the die cut from the adhesive and then apply to the prepared card.

I hand-punched a scalloped border from cardstock and then backed with the 1/4" 
Xyron High-Tack Adhesive.  

Although the dies do create a clean edge, you may wish to treat the edges of the 
ribbon with a no-fray solution before adhering to the card.

Here is a peek at another card using the same method:

Experiment and have fun with it :)


  1. What a clever idea and your cards are adorable. Yesterday I did something "sort of" like this by glueing cardstock to the back of felt to stabilize a delicate cutout, but I never thought of die-cutting ribbon with the xyron adhesive! Super cool! :)

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
