Happy Birthday Card in Purple

Hi friends.  Today I have a birthday card to share that I made using some of the gorgeous ribbons from the July Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The July ‘Perfectly Purple’ Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed mix of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Today I grabbed a Spellbinders die that has been sitting idle on my shelf for years.  Do you have some of these crafty things too??  You just had to have it and then never use it.  It’s a shame.  So, dust off those crafty goodies and USE them.  🙂

This card came together pretty quickly as I let the background die do most of the work.  The purple background paper (and the green accents paper as well) was created using Distress Inks.  I added some pearls to the butterfly to create a body.  Then I stamped my sentiment and mounted it on a tag die.  I layered two of the ribbons from the July Ribbon Club Assortment to use for the sentiment tag.  I adhered the ribbon to the back of the main panel and then backed that with white mulberry paper.

I created a pretty bi-color bow using my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two of the 5/8″ ribbon styles from the assortment.  I topped off the bow with a Heart Shaped Flat Back Pearl Bead.  Once completed, I added it to my card below my sentiment.
