This two kitten card includes a money saving tip. Many of us like to have everything coordinate when we make our own cards. But it can get expensive to buy materials,such as ribbons in a variety of colors.
The solution is to buy white ribbon that you can color yourself. You just apply the ink color you are using to make the card to the ribbon. This way you could just buy white ribbon in 3 different widths and color them to match instead of buying ribbons in all different color in three different width.
