Hi friends. Today I have a bit of a vintage birthday card to share. Never really sure if I can pull off the vintage look, but this fits the bill (a little??). I’ve embellished with loads of fun ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon where you can find what you need for whatever crafting style you favor.
I used two of the ribbon styles from the new August Ribbon Club Assortment on my project along with a few small snippets of Brown Burlap String. The August Assortment is Autumn Themed, but when you pull out one or two styles, they can work for any variety of themes or styles.
Not a member of our monthly Ribbon Club yet? JOIN TODAY and begin your subscription with this Autumn mix. This assortment has 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim. What a fun way to build you ribbon stash and try out new ribbon styles. You might find a new favorite!
I wrapped a piece of turftan brown satin with grosgrain edge around the center panel of the card and secured it on the back. I layered a piece of 3/8″ moss/cream plaid over that and dove-tailed the ends. My double loop bow was created with the same brown ribbon on my Bow-it-All V2.0. I added the brown burlap string using the helping hands clips the same way you would add a back ribbon and then trimmed the ends to the desired length. To view all my Bow-it-All Videos, please visit my YouTube channel HERE.
I embossed an ivory piece of cardstock for the center panel and then inked over it lightly with Gathered Twigs ink to make the embossing pop. I also couldn’t resist adding some natural mulberry paper behind the panel. I seriously can’t get enough of this stuff!

Wow, Bonnie, this is just lovely! I love the color palette (I am an earth tones kinda girl) and that embossed panel has to be the elevating element. I just received my ribbon pack yesterday, so I will have to figure out how best to use it! Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful work with us here at 613 Avenue Create!
