Sequin Shaker Card With Trims

Hello, creative friends and welcome by.  It's me, Karen here sharing today.  I don't know about you, but I sure do enjoy working with ribbons, laces, twines and all things spooled.  I love the textures, depth and personality they bring to all my crafting projects.  And at Really Reasonable Ribbon, you are sure to find every perfect trim for all your crafty designs.
One of my most favorite items, and one that I used quite a bit, is Baker's Twine.  This FAB trim comes in a wide variety of colors and styles (both striped and solid) and is a great bargain at just ten cents ($0.10) per yard.  It's true!  At Really Reasonable Ribbon, you'll find 40+ colors of beautiful Baker's Twine.  This amazing trim comes in 10-yard bundles for just $1.00 each.  Yup!  That's ten cents per yard.  And there are SO many great things you can do with Baker's Twine.  The card I'm sharing today is wrapped in Solid Light Pink Baker's Twine.
I layered my papers using strips of Scor-Tape and I placed lots of pretty sequins inside the frame.  The scalloped frame is raised up a bit using White Foam Tabs.  I also cut a small tag onto which I stamped my sentiment.  I tied a piece of 3/4" Celery Chevron Striped Twill to the end of my tag.  This is another great trim that comes in several different colors as well as different widths.
These two simple trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon add so much wonderful charm to my card.  You're sure to find all sorts of wonderful products at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and lots of inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  Thanks for visiting today, and please stop by again soon.

Old Glory Shabby Card by Cherry Nelson

  Hey ribbon peeps!  Cherry  here on the RRR blog today!   I have a 
pretty and soft take on a Patriotic card.  I layered lots of papers, diecuts, and paper flowers that I made.  I am addicted to making flowers.  It is so relaxing.  I have learned how to make Foamirian and paper flowers both.  It has kept me sane during this crisis.

I added in some adorable blue gingham along with gold thread wound around all the flowers for added texture.  I also used stamens from RRR.  Bonnie has a lovely collection of them.

I embossed a chipboard frame in gold embossing powder and added white oil pastel around the edges for a soft distressed look.

Hope you enjoyed this creation!!!  Stay safe and craft on!
XOXO, Cherry

Sheer Botanical Beauty

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Today I have a sheer botanical beauty of a card to share with you.  If you haven't discovered the gorgeous Variegated Sheer Ribbon in the RRR shop yet, it's time to take a look!  It's become one of my absolute favorite ribbon styles.  Soft and easy to work with, it also has a little bit of shimmer from the iridescent threads that run through it.  It ties a truly bodacious bow, especially when you pair it up with some Iridescent Metallic String!  The color I've used here is the Red/Pink/Ivory combination.  It's the perfect match for the pink and rose hues in this shaker card. 

Here's a peek at the inside of this garden themed card.  By adding a 1" spine to my card base, I was able to create a box style pocket on the right and a standard pocket on the left.

Dress up a tea bag, cookies, and chocolate with your designer papers.  Then tuck them into the pockets with a bitty spoon and honey stick to keep them company.

Use a tiny clip to attach a velvet bookmark to the card base.  Now you're ready for the garden party!

I hope I shared some tips for working with ribbon with you today.

Thanks for stopping by!
