Embossing on Heart 2 Heart

Dry embossing on satin ribbon: Cut your ribbon for the size of the card leaving 3/4" on each end. Cut a piece of typing paper the size of the width of the ribbon and the length of the place it will go on the card. Using Tombow adhesive completely cover the paper with the adhesive. Attach the paper to the back of the ribbon centered leaving 3/4" on each end. Emboss your ribbon with any embossing folder. The paper on the back will keep the embossed pattern firm on the ribbon. Fold the end pieces to the back and secure to your card.

Gorgeous. I love the embossed layer through the middle. It reminds me of old tin roof tiles.
