I used the technique direct to paper to give it that antique look, and did the same for the inside.
I added the ribbon to my panels before adhering it directly onto the front flap. Because it is suppose to be a masculine card, I opted to use the Pewter ribbon buckle to one side, rather than tie a knot. And on the other side, I just wrapped it around the panel. To make it more symmetrically appealing when the card is opened up, I also added a strip of the DS paper to the bottom of the inside of the card.
The photo holder (if that is what you call the embellishment) on the top right was meant to hold the card closed.
