Botanical Joy Fold Shaker Card Folio

Hello, Friends!  Have you had a chance to play with the Sunflower Assortment of Ribbons from the August Club yet?  These bright and bold ribbons are perfect for botanical themed cards and folios like this Joy Fold Shaker Card Folio.

I chose to use the 5/8" Forest Green Plaid, 3/8" Diamond Satin, 3/8" Yellow and Green Argyle Satin and the Random Lines Satin ribbon (which made me think of bamboo.)  These colors and patterns speak strongly of green grass, sunshine, trees and flowers.  And that's what this little joy fold folio is all about.

Forest Green Plaid Ribbon makes a great ribbon closure!  Simply adhere the ribbon with 1/2" Scor-Tape.

Tuck spots, pockets and flip pages make this folio lots of fun to open.  Nature inspired papers and ribbon make it beautiful to behold.

Top a bookmark with an assortment of 3'8" ribbons from the Club.  

Tie a square knot to hold this Argyle print tag topper in place. 

Here's a look at the folio fully opened.  Create a hidden pocket by adhering just the sides and bottom of the joy fold card to the base.  (Find a tutorial for this style of fancy fold card HERE.)

Score and fold a large ivory tag to create a unique photo insert for the hidden pocket. 

I hope I've inspired you to get out your August Ribbon Club and make something beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of You!

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday to you all! Cheryl here with a card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the gorgeous ribbons and flowers that RRR carries. Hope you enjoy my post for today, 

For this card, I chose to use a 6 x 6 card base, and layered it up using some scraps and card stock from my stash. The ribbon I chose is Satin Checkerboard Pearl Pink  and the White Satin to create my bows. Next I chose to use the 20mm Open Rose in White, and then the 15mm Open Rose in Pink. I also added the beautiful Rose Buds in a white and pink. The dies I used are from My Makers Movement, and it's called waterfall card kit.  I also used the Petite Sentiments stamp and die set.  I'm loving all the pink on this card. Lastly I did add some sewing, and distressing to my sentiment.

Our Hearts Are Huge

Welcome by today, everyone!  I'm glad you've found your way here to take quick peek at a FUN card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I know that I say this a lot, but I always LOVE playing with all the sweet products found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Of course, they carry just about every variety of ribbon, lace, twine, and spooled trim; but they also carry SO many other wonderful things.  I think I loaded a lot of them onto today's card.

I used a variety of different patterned papers on my card from scrap pieces (or snippets as some like to call them) and pieced everything together securing them with strips of Scor-Tape to create my paper base.  I used a small chipboard frame and a sticker sentiment that I adorned with a Pale Pink Open Rose and a Royal Blue Open Rose.  I used additional stickers here and there, including the heart-shaped one that's hanging from a Rusty Pear-Shaped Safety Pin.

At the top left, you'll find another floral sticker that's backed with 3-D Foam Squares and has several Double Head Stamens tucked above and below it.  I love how the Double Head Stamens poke out and provide a fun spray of color.  I also tucked some bundled Pink Burlap String underneath that same floral sticker, and there are a few snippets from a Red Berry Bead Cluster tucked into this sweet blossom.
I did some machine stitching, and I added some cute May Arts ribbon tabs to the side of my card including a piece of 1.5" Black Gingham.  I took this flat side view photo because I just adore all those beautiful layers of paper, ribbon and all things pretty.  If there's anything I forgot to mention that you're curious about, just leave me a comment and I'll let you know what I used.
There are SO many great products at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and you're always sure to find something perfect for your next project.  We hope you'll visit us often.

Let's Celebrate Greeting Card

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with a greeting card I created with beautiful trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

We've just wrapped up Christmas in July at Polly's Paper Studio and I was sooooooo ready to break out some non-holiday colors! I adore navy and peach together don't you?

By using the darker colored cardstock as a border between the busy patterns I was able to break up the busy patterns.  That beautiful stitched satin ribbon coordinates perfectly!
Why not add a garden full of gorgeous flowers to dress up your greeting cards? These are from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well and I just love how much fun they were to layer. A few details like the buttons and metal charm finish this card off in style!

Choose Joy Card with Handmade Flowers by Cherry Nelson

Hello Ribbon peeps!  Cherry here today to share a card and a new obsession.  Handmade paper and Foamirian flowers.   I have been having a ball creating them.  It is amazing what variations you can come up with just by using different stamens, layers, diecuts, and coloring techniques.  Each flower is always different.  I enjoy mixing them with my Wild Orchid Craft flowers from the store too.  I think they turned out so pretty.  Check out RRR for stamens and berries to use in your flower creating. Scroll down for Really Reasonable Ribbon supplies used.  Happy crafting friends!

XOXO, Cherry
