The ribbon I have chosen to use on my card is the Boho Blue Textured Ribbon. It is so soft and easy to work with. I love the texture of this ribbon, it gives the ribbon a bit of shimmer effect in the light. I have always tied knots when using ribbon on my cards in the past because I struggle with tying bows. I always seemed to have a hard time holding the knot tight while tying the loops of the bow. I have a bow tying tip if you struggle like I did.

Thanks to the tweezers in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit, it’s easier for me to tie a bow. Here’s how I do it. You can see in the photo below, once I have tied the knot I used tweezers pinch the knot tight, then I’m able to finished tying the bow. The tweezers easily slip out of the bow and the I tighten the bow.

I die cut the Boho Blue Cardstock with the scallop die in the Scallop Contours Dies. When I’m die cutting I use washi tape to hold the die in place.

I stamped the ladybugs from the Hello Ladybug Stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Lemon Lolly Ink. I brushed the ladybug spots with a wink of stella. To stamp the sentiment I used Stampin’ Up! Masking Paper to stamp the words bug me in Boho Blue and the rest of the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Then I die cut it out with the label from the Stylish Shapes Dies, which I added to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lemon Lolly is such a light pretty color I decided not to add a piece of Basic White inside my card but I did stamp a little ladybug inside.
