I'm not much of a technique gal, mainly because usually they involve a lot of steps. I like to keep it simple. I do however love to play with ribbon. Strano Designs makes this wonderful product called Ribbon Stiff that works perfectly with their grosgrain ribbon. It looks and feel a lot like Elmer's Glue. You brush it on one side of the ribbon and then let dry. What comes next is up to you. It cuts easy. It sews easy. It weaves (my favorite thing to do!) easy. You can punch it. Oh yes you can! :)
On this card I layered 2 pieces of ribbon after having applied Ribbon Stiff. I glued them together and fringed them easily with a small sharp scissors and used them as my grass.

Here is a close-up of the pierced lady bug "trail", another simple one step technique I love to do on my cards.
I love how you can use the SRM Sticker Sentiments on the ribbon as well. Makes placing a sentiment on your card even easier!
Happy Monday, friends and thanks for stopping by today!
