One More Border Die Card...with Linen Ribbon

I used one more of the dies from the Simon Says Stamp Envelope Liner die set to make a weaved ribbon card...
Here's what the die looks like...
This die has little rectangles...the perfect width for narrow ribbon...and the thought of the Tim Holtz Linen Ribbon seemed really perfect.  I opted to color one strip of the ribbon with black marker...the first pic below, then weaved two strips of the natural and the middle strip with the black ribbon...what's really cool about this ribbon is that it has the ability to widen...just pull on it, so it was wonderful to work with!  
I die cut this die sort of like I did the dies the last two days...as this die is not long enough to fit the entire length of the card...here's what I did(don't mind my beat up Big Shot:)!)...
 I lined the border up on the panel, taped, then die cut...
then I put the die to the top of the panel, fitting it into the already die cut pieces, taped and it's die cut from top to bottom:)!!
 I stamped a sentiment from Simon's Hydrangea Blooms, then clear embossed..   Here's a close up of the ribbons...
Weaving ribbon, who knew it would be so much fun!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  2. This card is striking! I have refrained from buying the Tim Holtz linen ribbon, but now it's in my shopping cart. Love that you used a black marker on the center piece.
