Tri-Fold Butterfly Card with Dyed Ribbon Bow

Hi friends.  Today I have a card I made while playing with my Color Burst powders.  I was having lots of fun creating great background papers and then I realized I could dye my ribbons to match.  Color Burst powders and ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  What a fabulous combination!

These powders are so much fun to play with.  If you want to dye ribbon, it’s done the same way you color your papers.  Simply mist the ribbon with water to wet, sprinkle on some powders, mist again and repeat until you have the desired look.  You can also dye the ribbons with the ‘leftover’ colors on your non-stick mat.  Either way works.  The ribbons don’t come out with colors quite as intense as on the paper, but they will still coordinate wonderfully with your project.
My bow was made with white Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  You can view all my Bow-it-All video tutorials on my YouTube channel HERE.
This is a tri-fold card which is a little hard to photograph.  I really wanted to showcase the pretty papers, so I left one panel free of other embellishments.
This is the inside.

  1. Love the tri-fold card design and these colors are amazing. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration and good luck in our challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.

  2. Wow! I had no idea that you could use the powders on ribbon! Thanks for enlightening me on that! I really love how subtle the ribbon is, yet it is such a shining star on this card! I like how you combined two different colors of ribbon to create it and how it replicates the beautifully blended colors of your butterflies. And kudos for making the inside of your card as lovely as the outside. You've done a wonderful job and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
