A Way With Words Soft Finish Cardstock

A Quick Card For The Mr & Mrs!

July 6, 2019

You got the perfect gift. It’s wrapped. But wait!  You don’t have a card? Here is a quick solution!

It’s Suzanne here today with a card that can be quickly made or could be a fun quest for the perfect coordinating ribbon!

Here is how this one was made…..


Form a 5 x 7” tent fold card base from lavender cardstock.

Die cut Mr and Mrs and the ampersand from white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Cut a piece of ribbon just over 7” long. Apply a small piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the ribbon and adhere it to the edge of the card.  Stretch it gently across the width of the card as shown and adhere it in place on the other edge. Trim the ribbon.

Adhere the words to the front of the ribbon as shown. That’s it! Simple but oh, so elegant!

    I am unable to find the ribbon you used here? Can you possibly give me the name of where it was purchased. I have a feeling it was meant tongue in cheek when you said have fun shopping for it! I ordered all of the other things now if I can only find the ribbon! Love the simple elegance of this card!

      Hi Shirley! I’m so glad you like the card! The ribbon is from May Arts and its number is FZ09. But you could use any pretty ribbon! Happy Creating!
