Next, created the background heart strip using Background Builders: Hearts. Stamped rows of hearts in Plum Pudding, Raspberry Fizz & Sweet Blush. Then attached ribbon tabs, of the same colors, to the strip and adhered it all to a Smoky Shadow card base. Here's A Tip: To make your ribbon tab embellishments a bit more interesting, try using more than one type of ribbon. For example, on my card I've combined twill, saddle stitch and satin.
Here's How: To create a simple ribbon tab, cut a 2-3 inch piece of ribbon. Using strong adhesive (Glue Dots or Scor-Tape will work perfectly), attach the ends together to form a loop. Then, simply adhere the ribbon loop to the back of your cardstock using another piece of adhesive.
Other ideas for these ribbon tabs are to double up or layer the ribbon tabs like this (see first card on the post) and this. Or create a fun and colorful border like this.
