Hello Ribbon Lovers and Happy Halloween!!
 

I hope you have lots of fun plans with your little ghosts and goblins today.

 

I’m back today with one last Halloween card to celebrate the day featuring one of my favorite plaid ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This wonderful 5/8″ Black Bold Check Plaid Ribbon is so versatile and can be used for a wide variety of occasions and projects and it’s sooo easy to work with.  It’s also available in the 3/8″ width if you prefer thinner ribbon on your projects.

Boo! Halloween Card

Hi everyone.  Today I’m sharing a really fun and spooky Halloween card created with the incredible Ultimate Halloween 5 piece die set from Cheery Lynn Designs and fun ribbons from the September Halloween themed Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My orange background, pumpkin die cuts and the dark night sky background were all made using Distress Ink papers that I created.
The die cuts are very straightforward.  I simply cut them in the colors shown using cardstock with Stick It adhesive on the back.  For the pumpkins and tree, I added the colors that you see for the eyes, nose and mouth.  I added the cat in black on the tree as well.
I added some grass using the Grass Border 2 die and placed the tree in front of it and I tucked the pumpkins behind it to create some depth.

The details on the dies add so much character to the pieces.

My card is topped off with a shabby bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Black Bold Plaid Check Ribbon from the September Halloween themed Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You can also see two more ribbons from this assortment running across the center of the card under the main panel.  I topped the bow off with a wiggle eye.

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cheryl’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.
 
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a fun Halloween assortment of ribbon.

Not a member yet?
JOIN TODAY!
The September Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Yup, I’m still playing with my Distress Inks and the background paper on this card was made using a variety of Distress Inks in orange tones and yellow and greens for the oval behind the sentiment.

I’m not a big fan of spiders in every day life, but these guys are just too adorable, don’t you think?


I ran a piece of the 5/8″ Black Bold Plaid Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Halloween Bold Diagonal Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon from the assortment across the middle of the card under the sentiment panel for a little extra color.

Notice that I was still able to add mulberry paper – even to a Halloween card.  I just used black mulberry paper.
Here’s a little peek at the inside of the card.  Why not decorate the inside too??!!

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the September  Ribbon Club Assortment.

Now for my headband of the month:
This headband was created on a 1/2″ White Plastic Headband using the one of the 3/8″ printed satin ribbons from the September Ribbon Club Assortment.  I was looking for something with a little more contrast than two prints, so I used the back of the pumpkins on black grosgrain ribbon.  Sneaky, right?!
