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. Be sure to comment on the post on the RRR Blog for a chance to win your own August Ribbon Club Assortment.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is all about autumn. Don’t you just love creating with beautiful autumn colors?!!
The August Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon. 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 created a beautiful autumn themed greeting card full of gorgeous realistic looking leaves. I just LOVE the pretty Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink paper that I created for the leaves. I also used some Distress Glaze on the leaves to give them just a hint of shine. So much fun!
Cheery Lynn Dies used:
B901 Acorns and Leaves
DL280 Royal Scandinavian Doily
LPC1 Square Pierce & Cut Tool Lge Silver
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 August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with an Antique Bronze Steampunk Metal Gear Embellishment. I also added a double layer of pretty ribbons across the center of the card under the sentiment.
