Thinking of You Card

Today I have a very purple-y ‘Thinking of You’ card to share featuring some gorgeous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and pretty ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  What a great combination!

I just LOVE purple, don’t you?  Add a little green for contrast and oh-la-la.

If you LOVE purple, the July ‘Perfectly Purple’ Ribbon Club Assortment is going to knock your socks off!!

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

My card measures 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and I built a few layers including a pretty layer at the bottom using white mulberry paper.  I topped that with purple and green and then a piece of Distress Ink paper I made in purple with a little green and layered the Felicity Doily on that.

I then added a strip of ribbon across the center and topped that with my sentiment circle.For the bottom half of my card, I created 3 gorgeous flowers using the Black Eyed Susan Strip.  I cut the flowers out of the same Distress Ink paper and used a plum color for the centers.  I created a bed of greenery using the foliage dies from the Floral Bouquet kit and added the flowers on top of that.

This flower looks so complicated, but is in fact one of the easier flowers to make.  I will include my video tutorial below.

Congratulations on Your New Baby Card

I was in the mood for some pinks and purples, so I whipped up a pretty card to welcome a new baby using some pretty dies from Cheery Lynn Designs along with pretty ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I love to use a pretty frame die for my background and today I selected the ‘Quatrefoil A2 Frame 1’ die.  I layered that over a gorgeous piece of Distress Ink paper that I made using pinks and purples.
My pretty flower and foliage cluster was created with my all-time favorite ‘Floral Bouquet Kit’.  For the centers I used a Plush Covered Button on the large flower and some Gingham Covered Buttons on the smaller flowers which can both be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  These flowers are so easy to create.  Just cut them, do a little shaping of the leaves with a stylus and foam pad and then just stack them and add a center embellishment.
