Merry & Bright Snowman Christmas Greeting Card

 Hey there friends and crafty peeps! I hope you are all enjoying a happy and healthy 4th of July. I'm currently sharing holiday projects for our Christmas in July series and this sweet snowman greeting card is on deck created with trims from RRR.

I really love to create for Christmas with non traditional holiday colors. The inspiration was the pretty pink background on the focal image.  I pulled lots of patterned papers from my stash to coordinate.

The pink plaid ribbon pairs so well and helps to fill in this arrangement of made by me flowers.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Best Wishes

Hello, again everyone! It is Gloria with you again! I had a bit of fun with the hot, tropical, June Ribbon Club - Jungle Fun Assortment! 

I was going to put this ribbon assortment away, but then I decided that I would make one more card with it before I moved on to the July Ribbon Club. I had a few short bits of the Watermelon Delicate Stitched Satin and the Toucan on White Satin that were not long enough to make a bow, but too long to feel good about tossing in the trash. I really don't like keeping every bit and scrap because I have so much ribbon! But I do hate to toss those 6"-10" bits!

I also had on my desk two cards that I had made a long time ago using some paper strips. I thought...hey, why not remake one of those cards, but using ribbon instead of strips of paper?!?

I created a 5" x 6" card from black cardstock. Then, I cut a piece of kraft cardstock to slightly smaller than 5" x 5" and added some Scor-tape to the back so that I could wrap short lengths of ribbon around the cardstock panel and secure them. I just alternated the ribbons: Watermelon Delicate Stitched Satin, Toucan on White Satin, Turftan Taffeta, Iguana on Branch White SatinWatermelon Delicate Stitched Satin, Yellow Gold PlaidToucan on White Satin, and Moss Plaid. (And I wish I had eliminated the brown ribbon, but, oh well.)

Once all the ribbon was attached, I added more Scor-tape and attached the whole panel to the card front. I then cut another piece of the kraft cardstock to slightly smaller than 1" x 5" and stamped the sentiment with black ink onto the left edge. 
I created a bow from the Moss Plaid and added lots of flowers (see list of flowers below). The leaves are hand colored with water-based markers! I used the White Paper Leaves and colorized them! To color the leaves, I first spritzed each leaf with a bit of water. Then I scribbled on them with various water markers. Once I had lots of color, I used a water brush to smoosh the color around. I dried the leaves with a heat tool. 
I finished the card by adding a few enamel dots here and there. I think this a great way to use leftover bits of ribbon!

Cake Celebration Slimline Card


Slimline Birthday Celebration Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon by Kathy Clement
Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  The best part about birthdays is the cake!  Especially when you dress the cake up with pretty Island Blue Diamond Satin Ribbon, White Chrysanthemums, Cosmos Daisies and Pink Cottage Roses from Really Reasonable Ribbon!  

I was introduced to Island Blue Diamond Satin Ribbon in the June 2022 Ribbon Club Assortment.  This bold, cheerful ribbon was the perfect shade of blue to add a pop of color to this slimline birthday card. I like to use 1/2" Scor-Tape to secure my ribbon to the card base because it really holds everything fast.  It also makes a beautiful border along the bottom edge of the card front.  A touch of Iridescent Metallic String adds just the right amount of shimmer and shine to this bodacious bow cluster!

Here's a quick peek at the inside of this cheery card.  There's a pocket inside the little card insert so you can easily add a gift card here.

I hope you all have a joyful and creative day!

A Sweet Thank You

The thing I love SO MUCH about Really Reasonable Ribbon is that I can always count on them to have the perfect trims, ribbons, twine, flowers and lovelies to adorn all my art projects.  It doesn't matter what I'm working on; Really Reasonable Ribbon will always have the most perfect products to help me make something pretty and creative.
This sweet little thank you card started with a piece of corrugated cardboard.  I used the Crimped Frames Dies from The Greetery to cut my pieces.  The (thanks) sentiment is a die-cut from Poppy Stamps that I cut from the back side of the corrugated cardboard so that it would match.  The one piece I cut is kraft tissue paper.  I ran a cute border sticker and a piece of Rosemary Crochet Lace across my card, and I attached a m iniature paperclip.
I bundled up some Green Burlap String and placed it in the lower left corner of my card that I topped with several pretty Double Head Stamens and a few Miniature Pastel Sweetheart Blossoms.  The heart was cut from wool felt using a heart die from PTI that I hand-stitched with DMC floss.
There are so many beautiful things waiting for you at Really Reasonable Ribbon that will allow you add fabulous new textures and dimensions to your cards and projects.  Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to visit us here often for lots of great inspiration and information about special sales and promotions.  Happy crafting.....wrapped in ribbons and lace!

I Like You a Latte Greeting Card

 Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with a card I created with trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon. 

I recently picked up a new die set and I've been having loads of fun creating cards with different themes. You might think of these cups for use on holiday cards ( and I have made those as well) but they are perfect for every day occasions. 

I chose some perfectly coordinating trims to coordinate with the papers and die cuts.
