Hi friends. Today I have a fun birthday card to share that would be perfect for a cute young man. I’m loving the aqua and jade color combination with a little accent of red featuring some great ribbons and burlap string from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I used jade Diamond Satin around the center of the card and layered some red Burlap Sting over it. I also have a little ‘tag’ of ribbon at the bottom. When I’m creating a card for a man or a boy and I know I will use less ribbon, I like to use something with a little pattern or texture so it will stand out. I love the subtle embossed pattern on the diamond satin ribbon.
For the bow I just took two short scraps of ribbon and laid them on the table one above the other. Then I did a simple running stitch through one and then the other. I gathered the pieces and added a button to the center. Then I trimmed the edges on the diagonal.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
