Stampin’ Up! Best Witches Halloween Card Using the Twisted Ribbon Technique

I made my first card using the Twisted Ribbon Technique back in May 2021. I kept my directions and the card and thought I’d give it a go again. It’s an easy technique and makes a huge impact on the card you are creating.

Traditionally, the Twisted Ribbon is made from Designer Series Paper but I decided to try the Glitter Washi Four Pack from Stampin’ Up! which is in the current Mini Catalog. The Glitter Washi Tape worked beautifully and added some fun Halloween colors to my card.

I used the Twisted Ribbon Technique with the Stampin' Up! Glitter Washi Four Pack to create the left side of this card. The right side of the card uses the Black and White DSP. The witch has been stamped, colored and fussy cut before being popped up on Dimensionals.

Each spool of Washi tape is 1/4″ wide so I made Tic Marks every 1/2″ down each side of the Basic Black panel. I placed all of the green strips of Washi tape down then went back and placed the orange Washi tape directly next to it. Then I went the opposite direction with the black Washi tape followed by the purple Washi Tape.


  • Basic Black card stock 4 1/4″ x 11, 2″ x 4 1/4″, and a scrap for greeting
  • Basic White card stock 4″ x 5 1/4″ and 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Black and White Designs DSP 3 1/4″ x 4″

Tic Marks 1/2″ apart on both long sides of Basic Black Panel
