Be sure to comment on the blog hop post on the RRR Blog for a chance to win your own April Ribbon Club Assortment.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a pretty ‘Bright Floral’ assortment of ribbon.
This month I’m sharing a bright and colorful birthday card.
This is a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ 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 two Sweetheart Blossoms on either side of the sentiment to pull some yellow in.
