MDS Stitched Ribbon Tutorial


Today I was playing with Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio, a digital design software. I actually used MDS to design my blog background, header, and buttons (e-mail me, specials, join my team, etc.) Anyways, I found a VERY simple tip to "stich" ribbon. Since I do not have a recording software for my computer, I have taken multiple screen shots. Click on photos for easier viewing.

Step 1:

Open/Design a project. I am using the Summer Home designer 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" landscape card.

Step 2:

Click on "Add Embellishment". I pop-up window should come up. I am using an additional download, "Satin Ribbon", but you can use whatever ribbon you want. Select your ribbon out of the embellishment list, and select the straight piece of ribbon. I am using Chocolate Chip to coordinate the designed card.

This is how your card should look now

Step 3:

Again, click on "Add Embellishment". Select "Staple and Stitching" and the left hand side of the pop-up window. Then select "Whisper White - Stitching Straight". Add this element to your project, and position it on your ribbon, with just a little gap between the stitching and the edge of the ribbon.

Step 4:

Repeat step 3, this time applying the white stitching to the opposite edge of the ribbon.

You now have stitched ribbon on your card! Happy digi-stamping!
