Be sure to comment on the blog hop post on the RRR Blog for a chance to win your own February Ribbon Club Assortment.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a pretty ‘Pastel Stash Builder’ mix of ribbon.
This month I’m sharing a very feminine birthday card. Birthday cards are my most used card, so I like to stay ahead of the game with a stash of them in case a birthday sneaks up on me!
This is a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ basic layered top fold card. When I was unpacking (from my second move!) I found a folder of patterned papers that I obviously could not live without. That’s pretty funny because I almost NEVER use design paper. Well, buckle-up – you’re gonna be seeing some design paper from me ’cause I’m determined to use it up. You can see all the layers I used and I added my signature mulberry paper layer behind the main panel. Along with the bow, I used a layered bit of ribbon behind the main sentiment panel. I love that look. That’s a great way to use ribbon, and still keep the card flat for mailing if you omit the bow and flowers. I also added a few mulberry roses to the bottom of the sentiment.

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color double loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using the pretty plaid ribbon from the February Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I topped the center of the bow off with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl embellishment.
