The April Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and crochet 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.
 

This month I create a pretty floral all-occasion card using some pretty dies from Cheery Lynn Design along with some of the ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment.  I love the bold look of this color combination.
I created by background by cutting the lattice die out of blue cardstock and layering it on a cream cardstock background.  I then ran a piece of brown ribbon across the center of the card, added the base of the sentiment frame, layered the tan swiss dots ribbon on that and then added the sentiment panel.Next I pulled out my very favorite flower die set – the Floral Bouquet Kit, and cut the flower and foliage pieces.  I shaped them using a foam pad and stylus, assembled and added white half pearls for the centers.  I then arranged the floral cluster below the sentiment.

 

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also ran two ribbons from the assortment across the center of the card behind the sentiment.

  1. Very nice card! And, LOL, even though I have no interest or use for one, I always enjoy seeing what you do with headbands! You are incredibly inventive and creative when it comes to making these…I’ve taken some ideas from you in the past and incorporated them into paper working!
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love the soft fuzzy pillow on which the card and sentiment rest. Lovely
