Got this card idea from another contributor, casing I guess they call it! I love this style of card and am going to have to make more with this diagonal fold/cut.
I still have to fill in the blank area but haven't decided yet if I am going to write some sentiments or what, I am afraid of ruining the card!

Very cute! Great idea using 2 coordinating colors of ribbon -- did you just tie the 2 ends at the end of the card? This would make a great birth announcement using that blank space for the info. Into my Favorites it goes!
That is just one ribbon, with one side being the pink color with brown detailing, and the opposite side brown with pink detailing so when I tie the bow I get the effect of both colors. I made the bow separately though and then stuck it on with glue dots. When the card is folded closed you can see where I cut a separate section of ribbon so again you'd get the contrasting colors. Thanks for your comments I am new to the site, and relatively new to the world of Stampin' Up and card making so that's why this is my only card! Lots of great ideas here though!:-D
