Glue a 5 3/8" x 3 5/8" piece of coordinating scrapbook paper to front of card.
Cut a 4 1/4" x 2" piece of cardstock. Add a rubber stamp image and shade the edges, if desired. Tie a 11" length of ribbon around cardstock, tie a knot and trim ends.

Cut a 2 3/4" x 2 1/8" oval from scrapbook paper. Cut a slightly smaller oval from cardstock, add a rubber stamp image or sticker. Glue to front of larger oval.
