I have the three layers of my wedding invite done. Layer one is a textured backround piece, then a second layer (both are just heavy paper) is glued onto the first lyaer. Next comes the vellum. I decided to use ribbon to hold the vellum on, but should I punch wholes for the ribbon through all three layers? That would mean the back of the ribbon will show on the back of the card. The only alternative I can think of is to try to punch holes through the vellum and the middle layer, and THEN glue those to the first (back) layer, but I think that is going to be difficult to line up.
Will it look cheesy if I have the back of the ribbon showing on the back of the card?

I would put the ribbon through all layers.

I’d go through all the layers too.

If it isn’t too hard to punch through all three, that’s what I’d do. If doing one makes your hand cramp up then switch to plan B.

I would punch through everything. I think it would be better to have the ribbon showing in the back, than to have your layers look bumpy because there’s ribbon glued in between.

Something else to note is that vellum is really delicate, so if you do not enforce the holes, they may tear when you tie the ribbon. Therefore, you will definitely need to punch through all of the layers.
