America the Beautiful Card

I don’t know what it is about the red, white and blue color combination, but it just seems to ‘sing’ on every project.  This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Ribbon Club Assortment is all about red, white and blue and I’m having a blast with these ribbons!

This month we have a great special!  
Customers in the US can join our Monthly Ribbon Club and begin with the April and May Assortments for the low price of $17.00!

The April assortment has 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  The May assortment has 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a holiday or color themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries a fabulous line of Mulberry Flowers that are perfect for all your crafty creations.  Head on over and take a look at all the different flower options that are available.  The flowers I used today below my sentiment panel are 15 and 20mm Open Roses in red, white and blue.

My background paper was created using Distress Inks in Festive Berry and Faded Jeans.  I applied it to my paper with a foam applicator and spritzed it with water to create the mottled effect.  The beautiful lattice background was made with a die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

My pretty bi-color double-loop bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two styles from the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  I also used some additional ribbon from the assortment to wrap around the middle of my card under the sentiment panel.  My bow was embellished with a pretty 8 mm Flat Back Pearl.

  2. So pretty! Like everything on this card, it´s simply stunning!
    Thank you for sharing your talent with us at Crafty Catz. Good luck! Nick DT

  3. I saw this posted earlier, and I love the red, white and blue flowers (with a touch of green, of course)! I had to break down and buy the zutter bow maker because I keep seeing your gorgeous bows! I have big fingers which really makes tying a relatively small bow very difficult. So while I was over there, I just HAD (LOL) to buy some of these larger pearls. My own birthday’s Friday–maybe I’ll win a prize. Thanks for sharing the details.

    1. I hope you LOVE your bow-it-all as much as I love mine! It’s my favorite tool. And of course you can never have too many embellies! Happy crafting. 🙂

  4. This is so GORGEOUS!!! I LOVE your background; it is fabulous and the lattice adds to it perfectly! As always, I love your bow and the mulberry paper and of course, those gorgeous flowers!

  5. Bonnie this is just gorgeous. All of those delicious elements work perfectly together because of the skilful composition of this card.
    Glad you stopped by at 613 Avenue Create.
