With Deepest Sympathy

Hi there ribbon lovers.  Today I have a sympathy card to share.  I find sympathy cards to be difficult to make and I like to keep them kind of simple.  I think this one fits the bill.  I topped the card off with a pretty bow I made with ribbon and string from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
9-28-16-1I was shooting for a CAS look, and for me this is pretty ‘clean and simple’.  I did use multiple layers but I kept a clean background with the pretty leaf inclusion paper.  I stamped the sentiments and butterflies right on this artist paper.9-28-16-2

The pretty die is the Cherry Blossom die from Cheery Lynn Designs and I think it’s perfect for this card.

Happy Anniversary Card

Hi friends.  Today I am sharing a sweet anniversary card.  My card stash is always lacking for anniversaries, so I have to get working on this!  My card today is embellished with pretty ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.9-23-16-1

I love my stash of Mulberry Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  When I’m running behind and just don’t have the time to make handmade flowers, they are great to have on hand.  There is a HUGE variety of flower styles and the prices are very reasonable.  You might say ‘Really Reasonable’!

I ran a strip of Royal Blue Delicate Stitched Satin across the center of the card topped with a piece of Grape Grosgrain with Silver Edges.  The bow was created with Grape and Royal Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V3.0.

The dies I used on my card are all from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I love their huge selection of dies and they have the perfect die for any occasion.
