America the Beautiful Card

I don’t know what it is about the red, white and blue color combination, but it just seems to ‘sing’ on every project.  This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Ribbon Club Assortment is all about red, white and blue and I’m having a blast with these ribbons!

This month we have a great special!

The April assortment has 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  The May assortment has 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a holiday or color themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries a fabulous line of Mulberry Flowers that are perfect for all your crafty creations.  Head on over and take a look at all the different flower options that are available.  The flowers I used today below my sentiment panel are 15 and 20mm Open Roses in red, white and blue.

My background paper was created using Distress Inks in Festive Berry and Faded Jeans.  I applied it to my paper with a foam applicator and spritzed it with water to create the mottled effect.  The beautiful lattice background was made with a die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

My pretty bi-color double-loop bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two styles from the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  I also used some additional ribbon from the assortment to wrap around the middle of my card under the sentiment panel.  My bow was embellished with a pretty 8 mm Flat Back Pearl.

Happy Anniversary Card

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty anniversary card I made for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law showcasing some pretty ribbon, embellishments and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Since I was using some Distress Ink papers that I had already made, this was a pretty quick card to put together.  I cut my background die and layered it on the Distress Ink paper and then added a brown and navy blue layer with a final layer of natural mulberry paper at the bottom..  I then wrapped a piece of Navy Diamond Satin Ribbon across the center and topped that with Natural Burlap String.  This panel was then attached to a 5-1/2″ square navy blue card base that was topped with a piece of my Distress Ink paper.

My sentiment was stamped and die cut and layered again on brown and navy cardstock with a final layer of natural mulberry paper at the bottom.  The sentiment was attached to the card front with 3D Foam Tabs.
I added three Chrysanthemums from the Mixed Earth Tone Chrysanthemum Assortment under my sentiment.  I curled the wire around a needle tool before I added them.  These chrysanthemums some in a variety of colors and are a great addition to any project.

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Turftan Brown and Capri Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.
