Wave Ribbon Collage as Not Waves
by Anne Thompson

Since my cards on June 18th,  I've been experimenting with ways to use the WAVE RIBBON COLLAGE die 94005 as not waves.  Here's what I came up with first.

 I started with Lemongrass notecards, Violet Dot paper, and black cardstock.  

These are the dies I used.

  • I cut the WAVE RIBBON COLLAGE 94005 in the front of each Lemongrass notecard, one card horizontally and the other vertically.
  • I glued down a piece of Violet Dot paper 4 X 5 1/4 to the inside right panel of each notecard.
  • I die cut the FORGET ME NOT BLOOMS 99997 multiple times--the stems from black cardstock and the blossoms from the Violet Dot paper.
  • I die cut the FLITTER SIDE BUTTERFLY 94002--the solid body twice from Violet Dot paper and the more detailed butterfly outline twice from black cardstock.
  • For the card on the left, I used the horizontal wave cut and added two Forget Me Not stems and Violet Dot blossoms, popping up one of the blossoms and adding white pearls to the blossom centers.  I used a glue pen to put the butterfly together and popped it up on the card near one cluster of blossoms.
  • For the second card with the vertical wave ribbon, I added one stem to the right edge of the cut-out and blossoms with pearl centers at the top and popped on the second butterfly.

The second card got me thinking that I could use the vertical Wave Ribbon Collage cut-out as stems which resulted in this card.

This time I used a Key Lime notecard and Key Lime Gingham paper, using the waves as stems for the Forget Me Not blooms.

And then I couldn't stop coming up with ideas!  Here are two more.

The one on the left incorporates the BIRD BRANCH CIRCLE FRAME 99993 cut from black cardstock and placed over the vertical Wave Ribbon Collage.  I perched just one of the birds on the branch.  The card on the right showcases the TREE BLOSSOM STITCHED CIRCLE FRAME 99914 cut from black cardstock and placed on top of the horizontal Wave Ribbon Collage with another Flitter Side Butterfly added.

And these are the dies I used.

So...wave ribbons don't have to be waves.  They can be stems or just an interesting detail on a card front to showcase another die or to highlight an interesting paper inside or placed directly behind the Wave Ribbon Collage cut-out.

Happy Crafting!
