The new parents of twin boys will be receiving this card shortly. It is a gatefold card using designer paper by DCWV (Die Cuts With A View). I stamped "Welcome Baby" all over the 2 sides and added real and faux ribbon to the edges and tabs. The faux ribbon is my own invention. It's what happens when you put a piece of tape on paper and then try to take it off. The top layer of the paper comes off with it, leaving just a bit of pattern under the tape. After folding in the edges of the tape to form a narrow band, it's not hard to tie the tape like ribbon - and you've got a perfectly coordinated accessory. In the photo, the green is the faux ribbon. It's not going to fool anyone, but it's got its own charm I think - something like old-fashioned oilcloth.
