Autumn Birthday Card

Hi there fellow ribbon lovers.  I’m sneaking in with one more Autumn themed card before things  switch over to all Winter/Christmas.  I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but Autumn hardly happened here in the New York.  We literally went from a/c one week to heat the next.  Don’t even get me started on how we missed out on the autumn colors .  But, there’s always next year…..

 

So this birthday card is sporting some fun autumn colors and it features some pretty ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  My Mom’s birthday is in mid-October, so this color combo was perfect for her card.

 

Of course I waited until the last minute to make it (what else is new…) so this was a pretty simple card.  It has some layers of course, but they take no time to cut.  Instead of making flowers, this time I hit my stash of mulberry flowers and selected some Red Cottage Roses to add below the sentiment.  These pre-made mulberry flowers are a great time saver and great to have on hand.  They are also very inexpensive.  Be sure to take a look at all the options in the Mulberry Flower section at Really Reasonable Ribbon. 

 

I finished my card off with my signature bi-color double loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 with two colors of Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  This ribbon is my absolute favorite ribbon for bow making.  It’s a dream to work with.  I also ran a piece of 5/8″ Kiwi Diamond Satin Ribbon across the middle of the card under the sentiment and topped that with 3/8″ Maize Honeycomb Print Satin Ribbon.

This month I created a pretty and sparkly Christmas card. 

Dies used:
Cottage Cutz Joy Nativity die
Cheery Lynn Designs FRM154 Quatrefoil A2 Frame 2 Die Set 
Cheery Lynn Designs XM7 Oval Die Cut
Cheery Lynn Designs M7 Oval Classic Stacker Layers, Small, Silver

I actually purchased the Joy Nativity die last year with the intention of using it for my Christmas cards, but it was a bit too intricate and it would have taken too much time to use it to mass produce 25+ cards.  It’s a lovely die to use for a few special people though.  I layered shimmery silver and gold cardstock for added interest.

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 October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with a  12mm Silver Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.  I also added a double layer of pretty ribbons across the center of the card under the sentiment.
