Hi there fellow ribbon lovers. I’m sneaking in with one more Autumn themed card before things switch over to all Winter/Christmas. I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but Autumn hardly happened here in the New York. We literally went from a/c one week to heat the next. Don’t even get me started on how we missed out on the autumn colors . But, there’s always next year…..
So this birthday card is sporting some fun autumn colors and it features some pretty ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon. My Mom’s birthday is in mid-October, so this color combo was perfect for her card.
Of course I waited until the last minute to make it (what else is new…) so this was a pretty simple card. It has some layers of course, but they take no time to cut. Instead of making flowers, this time I hit my stash of mulberry flowers and selected some Red Cottage Roses to add below the sentiment. These pre-made mulberry flowers are a great time saver and great to have on hand. They are also very inexpensive. Be sure to take a look at all the options in the Mulberry Flower section at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I finished my card off with my signature bi-color double loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 with two colors of Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon. This ribbon is my absolute favorite ribbon for bow making. It’s a dream to work with. I also ran a piece of 5/8″ Kiwi Diamond Satin Ribbon across the middle of the card under the sentiment and topped that with 3/8″ Maize Honeycomb Print Satin Ribbon.
