I just love bright summer colors and I went hog wild with this card. I used 4 of the ribbon styles from the assortment and they work very well together.
The fun bi-color bow was created with my Bow-it-All V2.0. This tool has changed my life! I use it on almost all of my projects and it makes creating show-stopping bows quick and easy. To view all my Bow-it-All tutorials, please visit my YouTube channel.
Here is my monthly headband featuring 3 ribbons from the June Ribbon Club assortment. Any little girl would just LOVE this headband! Want to give it a try? You can find my tutorial for this headband HERE. If you are new to woven ribbon headbands, there are some beginning options too.
I’m entering my headband in the following challenges:
Hi friends. Today I have a fun birthday card to share that would be perfect for a cute young man. I’m loving the aqua and jade color combination with a little accent of red featuring some great ribbons and burlap string from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I used jade Diamond Satin around the center of the card and layered some red Burlap Sting over it. I also have a little ‘tag’ of ribbon at the bottom. When I’m creating a card for a man or a boy and I know I will use less ribbon, I like to use something with a little pattern or texture so it will stand out. I love the subtle embossed pattern on the diamond satin ribbon.
For the bow I just took two short scraps of ribbon and laid them on the table one above the other. Then I did a simple running stitch through one and then the other. I gathered the pieces and added a button to the center. Then I trimmed the edges on the diagonal.
I’ve gone with one of my favorite color combinations again – purple and green. The compliment each other so nicely. I wanted to play along with this week’s Cheery Lynn Challenge, but I didn’t have any corner dies, so what’s a girl to do?? Well, you get out your dies and figure out how to make some out of what you have – that’s what! One of my favorite dies is the Cherry Lynn Designs Burlap Border, so I got that out and went to work. I like how my decorative corners came out. Whaddaya think?
