This month I created a fun Halloween themed greeting card. 

My card is topped off with a pretty shabby bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using the black checkerboard ribbon from the September Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with a  Steampunk Metal Gear Embellishment.  I also added a double layer of pretty ribbons across the center of the card under the sentiment.

The August Ribbon Club Assortment is a collection of rich autumn colors and prints.  It contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and crochet lace.  The September Ribbon Club Assortment is a Halloween themed assortment with 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed collection of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.
 

I kept this card relatively flat for mailing.  You could even eliminate the Thin 3D Foam Tabs under the leaves to make it even flatter. 

This is also a perfect way to use up those precious ribbon scraps that you don’t want to part with.  I just dove tailed the end of two 5-1/2″ pieces of each color of ribbon and even spaced them over the background Distress Ink paper I created.  I then added the leaf squares on top of the ribbon.

Did you hear that Cheery Lynn Designs is now My Maker’s Movement?  They are still stocking some favorites from the Cheery Lynn offerings and they are also offering a fabulous new line of stamp and die sets.  Head on over and take a look!

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
B838 8 Piece Fall Leaves Die Set
M7 Oval Classic Stacker Layers Small
XM7 Oval Die 
LPC-1 Square Pierce & Cut Tool Lge

 

I get lots of questions about the ‘fuzzy layer’ that I use on a lot of my cards. 

That layer is Mulberry paper and you can view a video on how I use it and where I get it HERE.

It’s Your Day

Hey friends.  Today I’m popping in with a quick post to share a birthday card I made earlier this month for a special young lady.  I added some of my favorite ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon to finish off the card.

 
This is a great sunflower die from Cheery Lynn Designs and I shaded it with Distress Inks.

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:

I just love the dimension you get by layering the die cuts.
 

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Yellow Gold and Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I also added two pieces of Natural Burlap String behind the bow to add some texture.
