OK, now that you have your cards, ribbon and Stickles Glitter Glue, (remember that's the jazzy glitter glue) let's add one more step...a greeting.

To save a TON of time, try to use black and white printed notecards. (I purchased my notecards at Michaels.)

The reason for black and white?  It's easy!  You'll only need black and white paper and black ink to complete the card.  No color matching needed!  Plus, in my opinion, black and white looks SO classy!


Here are the basic steps:
Add ribbon to your purchased notecard.
Stamp a greeting on white cardstock, trim it down, adhere it on black cardstock, trim again and glue it down on the card!  That's it!

Those store bought $1. pack cards just keep looking better and better!

 

You can glue the stamped greeting right on top of the ribbon if you tape the ribbon down on the front of the card.  Don't worry, no one will see the tape, the greeting will cover it up!


See, I told you.....no one knows I used plain ol' scotch tape!


On the left are the cards with just ribbon, on the right are the same cards with the added greeting.  Notice the top one I cut out in a tag shape.


Here I added a graduation hat die cut with a tassel and brad. (Notice the Stickles Glitter Glue dots too!)


With a die cut on the outside you can stamp your greeting on the inside.  So quick and you saved $3.+ dollars by making the card yourself!


Here's another option and this time I used color.  I simply stamped on a tag made with a Circle Punch and glued it to the (already prepped) card.
