Here's my Card Sketch Wednesday Challenge card. I love the Red, Black and white, and think this turned out so elegant.
For those of you unfamiliar with how ribbon slides work, they are really quite easy to use. All you do is remove the areas that have an X on them, using either an exacto blade or by poking a hole with a pointed pair of scissors and then cutting the X portion out. (That's what I do.) Then, they work like a buckle with the ribbon sliding up from the back and down over the center portion, or tying a knot over the center post.
This particular slide is designed to be punched out with a 1" circle punch, making it quick and easy to use.
Have you noticed how similar this ribbon slide is to the Cuttlebug Textile Texture Embossing folder? The patterns are so similar it's practically a perfect match! I think they complement each other very well.
This is a pic of the scrap piece of red cardstock I used to punch out my flowers to give you an idea about the punch I used.
