My card is topped off with a pretty shabby bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using the orange checkerboard ribbon from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with a wiggle eye.  I also added a double layer of pretty ribbons across the center of the card under the main panel.

Autumn Note Card

Hi crafty friends.  Today I’m swinging in with a fun autumn themed card to share that features some pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 
My card today features two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment.  If you aren’t already a member, no worries – you can still get this great assortment!  
 
This month we have a great deal for US residents. 
You can get the August and September assortments together for a special low introductory price of just $17.00!

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.

Make a Wish…

Hi friends.   Today I’m popping in to share a pretty birthday card I made for a dear friend.  I picked some of my favorite ribbons and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon to complete the card.

 
Debbie loves purple just like I do, so I went all out purple and pink.  Those are my happy colors!
 

The pretty flowers were handmade using a favorite die set from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I used Distress Ink papers I created for the background and the flowers and the centers were finished with 10mm Flat Back Pearls.

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 Dies used:

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Regal Purple and Rose Bloom Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  The center of the bow is topped with a 10mm Resin Flower embellishment.  I also ran the Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Tutti Frutti Chevron Grosgrain Ribbon across the center of the card behind the sentiment panel.
