Assembling Your Card

The best thing about this design is the fact that you can assemble the items on the card anywhere you want and you’ll still end up with a quality card but to do the design you see here it’s rather easy and only takes a few steps.

  • First take your A4 Ivory card and fold it in half from top to bottom.
  • Second you’ll want to cut pieces of your ribbons long enough to cover the front of the card as seen. It’s always best to cut a little extra slack to help with positioning of the ribbon. You can always cut it down as needed.
  • Using either double sided tape, glue-tape roller or glue dots, (which ever works best for you) you’ll want to attach the red grosgrain ribbon on the front of the card going from top to bottom. Then the Merry Christmas Ribbon from left to right going over the red grosgrain.
  • Then attach the self-adhesive Lurex bow to the red grosgrain ribbon near the top.
  • Next attach the self-adhesive presents in the open area of the card in which ever design you like best.
