Silk Ribbon Thank You's


For very special people and very special projects, I love using silk ribbon. This is a product used by people who love doing silk ribbon embroidery, so if you go looking for it, look by the embroidery floss.

You'll find silk is the most wonderful stuff to work with. It comes in lots of beautiful colors and it bunches and gathers in the loveliest way. Here I simply used a needle to stitch it in and around the die-cut flowers and as the border. (Click on the image to get a better look at what I'm talking about.)

The paper is from our Fleuriste Collection.

Silk ribbons are making a comeback. I remember in High school my mom use to make these embroidery flowers out of silk ribbons.
Have a spectacular day,
Maggie

I'm not sure how I missed this post. The silk ribbons add such an elegant touch to an already beautiful card.

How darling! Something new to do with silk ribbon; I wrote about this type embroidery in my blog today and am glad to see it is making a comeback. Really a neat idea, and I will get busy trying to make a few cards. Thanks! Nancy

I am absolutely in love with the Fleuriste line!!! I was in a bind not too long ago and found it and it was perfect for my layout and I was exceptionally excited. I also used it in a layout just last week where I have received a lot of complements:http://www.scrapinstyletv.com/portfolio/view_layout.php?layout_id=90451&imgid=6 Now I need to find a store near by that carries it in the 12x12 size because I bought it in the smaller size that comes in a pad. Scrumptious line!
