Ribbonista Engagement Hop- A DIY Wedding Garter Card

November 20th, 2013 | Crafts, Event Decor, Made with Fabric

Today I’m taking a break from the Holidays to bring you this very special Ribbonista Hop.

we <3 you Bethany! Our May Arts Ribbon leader, Bethany got engaged!! We’re all so excited for her that we thought we’d celebrate with a hop, and shower her with cards of congratulations! I got to thinking, what would be a super special card if you just got engaged? Well one that could do double duty! I decided to make a wedding garter card, whats that you ask?  Have a look-

A wedding garter gift. Perfect for a engagement or wedding shower gift

The photo of the card does it absolutely no justice. I used DCWV glitzy paper it seriously glimmers with NO mess involved! Just like my Mess Free Glitter Holiday Painting!

I made a basic card with no fuss and added the garter to embellish, great double duty eh?

I made the garter from 100% May Arts ribbon! I used elastic ribbon for the base and adorned it with lace and silk.

Can you imagine the ribbon lady’s wedding, I’m sure it will be laced (pun intended) with the most beautiful designer ribbons around! She should defiantly have her leg decorated too!
