Patriotic Floral Note Card

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty Patriotic Floral Note Card I created using pretty dies from Cheery Lynn Designs along with ribbon from the May Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The Floral Bouquet Kit die set from Cheery Lynn Designs is so versatile that I find myself using it again and again – if not for the flowers, then certainly for the foliage pieces.  This set is a great addition to any die collection.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
B777 Floral Bouquet Kit
LPC-16 Rectangle Pierce & Cut Tool Lge Silver

The flowers were cut in red, white and blue cardstock.  I inked the white layers with red and blue ink.  I then shaped the petals and assembled each flower, finishing off with a White Half Pearl for the center.  I then arranged the foliage pieces around the sentiment panel and then adhered the flowers over that.

My card is finished off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using ribbon from the Patriotic themed May Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a Star Shaped Pearl Embellishment.

Summer Floral Birthday Card

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a bright and pretty floral birthday card I created with the lovely Cherry Blossom die from Cheery Lynn Designs and pretty ribbon from the May Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 
I’m so ready from summer right now and there’s nothing like a red, white and blue color palette to scream summer.  This color scheme works really well with the Cherry Blossom die, so I went with it.
 
Cheery Lynn Dies uses:

 
I cut the Cherry Blossom die in green, red and pink Distress ink paper.  I used the green as my base and then fussy cut the flowers in red and then the flower centers in pink and layered them to create the flower for the center medallion.  The background was created with the pretty Quatrefoil A2 frame 1 die which I also adore.

Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cheryl’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.

This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a bold Patriotic themed red, white and blue collection of ribbon.

Not a member yet?
JOIN TODAY!
The May Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.
 

This month I created a pretty Mother’s Day card.  While the assortment is Patriotic themed, I just love this bold color combination for anything summery.  While it’s not quite summer yet, I think it’s close enough!

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the May Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with a Pearl Star Embellishment.  I also ran two ribbons from the assortment across the center of the card behind the sentiment.
