Really Reasonable Ribbon August Blog Hop


 Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon August 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 beautiful autumn assortment of ribbons and lace.

Not a member yet?
The August Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and lace.  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.

I just love an autumn color palette.  It’s so beautiful!  For my card today I kept things pretty easy and let some pretty design paper do quite a bit of the work for me.

The top third of the card was created using some cream card that I created using several of the tan/brown Distress Inks.  I topped that with a die cut using the Lattice 2 die from Cheery Lynn Designs.I covered the seam where the design paper and the die cut pieces meet with two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment.  The sentiment was added over that.  I also added some pretty feathered natural mulberry paper as my bottom layer before adhering to an A2 card base.

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment.  I finished off the center of my bow with a pretty Antique Bronze Flower Charm.
