Elegant Soiree Beveled Window Panes

Stamp Club:  Part 2

Rather than just tying your ribbon into a knot or bow, another way to attach ribbon to a card is by using the Beveled Window Panes.  Using them is a great way to use ribbon differently.  But more importantly, it definitely shows off the stamped image as the focal point with a bang!

That being said, I found that they are a bit tricky to attach but well worth the trouble.  I found that the way I attach the windows is with the ribbon itself.  To help keep the window  in place, I added glue dots behind the ribbon near where the linen thread is tied.  Just adds a bit more stability.

To make a Square Border using the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, I used this VIDEO TUTORIAL.  This link shows how you can make a rectangle border as well.
Here is another view.  You can see the flower image better in this photo.
