Older and Wiser

Hello, everyone! It is Gloria with you again! I am taking a break from Christmas projects to share a masculine birthday card! My oldest son turns (GULP) 31 on December 12th and I need a card. Two birds...one stone!

Despite having a husband, two sons, three brothers, many nephews, and one awesome great-nephew, I never seem to make enough masculine cards! I am always scrambling at the last minute to make one! And it's not as if I don't have masculine papers or other embellishments, because believe me, I do! I just love to do flowers and ribbons and sparkle more! 
I pulled out this beautiful paper from Authentique (Mister Collection) for my card. I love the colors of this collection - brown, rust, charcoal, gray, navy. So masculine and so vintage! 

I chose one of the ephemera cards for my focal point...but gave it a bit of a make-over to change the date to my son's birth year, 1991. I love the "older and wiser" sentiment, too.  

For the trim I used the stunning 3/8" Charcoal Satin with Grosgrain Edge ribbon. I love this ribbon color and think I need to get it in all the sizes...maybe in a spool....  The color is not black nor gray nor navy, but just a bit of all of those colors! 

I wrapped some Navy Burlap String around the center of the ribbon and attached it all to the back of the panel. I then tied a knot with a short bit of the 3/8" Charcoal Satin with Grosgrain Edge ribbon. This is a simple, yet masculine way to add ribbon and trim to a card without using any big loopy bows. (The men in my life are not that into loopy bows!)

I added a lining to the inside of the card and stamped a birthday sentiment, plus added some bits of paper to trim out the inside of the card. There is still plenty of space to write a message.
I glued three metal studs to the lower right corner of the card to finish it off. 

Thank you so much for joining me today!

Warm Wishes for a Golden Christmas

Really Reasonable Ribbon, Old Gold Checkerboard Satin Ribbon, Graphic 45 Warm Wishes, Kathy Clement, Kathy by Design

 Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  One of the things I love the  most about the holidays is that you get to bling up your cards and projects with lots of shiny things!  Take this gorgeous Old Gold Checkerboard Satin Ribbon, for instance.  It adds such a lovely vintage shine and texture to the composition of this Warm Wishes Christmas card. Gold Metallic String Bows layered on top add just that extra bit of subtle sparkle.

Layered ribbon borders are another way to add holiday elegance to a design.  I've used Scor-Tape to create this layered border using ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment. The Copper and Gold Confetti Dots Grosgrain Ribbon makes me think of pretty Christmas ornaments hanging on the tree! 

There's not much time left on the clock to get your Christmas projects made, but you can still find lots of great Christmas Ribbon in the RRR Shop. 

Wishing you all a warm and cozy day!

Cheerio,

kathy

Merry Christmas Treat Pocket Tag

 
Hello crafty friends and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I'm sharing another fun Christmas pocket tag, this one is a pocket one I designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon, it can hold hot cocoa and a stir stick, or candys or whatnot. Love making these as they are so fun to create and give as gifts.
Love that you can take your large dies, and create these pockets, and then decorate them up using other dies and embellishments. I used the beautiful ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon, one is a Forest Green Satin, and the other is a christmas plaid. I used the Kadoodle Bug Designs Christmas cup ginger that I had put together last year. Love these! The sentitment tags are stampinup! I added some white dots, and then a little santa hat button up on the top bow.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day! Hugs to all, Cheryl

Christmas Sweets & Ribbon Treats

Hi, friends!  It's Karen here today.  Are you ready for Christmas?  I'm most definitely not.  Luckily, our family isn't actually visiting until the day after Christmas, so I do get a little extra time to prepare.  In the meantime, I'm having a lot of fun creating Christmas cards and projects and picking up gifts and stocking stuffers.  Today I'm sharing a cute Christmas mitten filled with lots of sweet treats.  Really Reasonable Ribbon made it easy.
Oh my!  Where do I start?  I used a die-cut from PTI to cut that treat bag.  The base (back) is cut from cardboard and the front is cut from kraft tissue paper.  I machine stitched the edges to create the pocket where I could slip in goodies.  I added some peppermint sticks, candies, etc.  I ran some pretty Crochet Lace and some Red & White Gingham Ribbon across the lower part of the treat bag.
Each trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon that I added just made it cuter and cuter.  At the top of the mitten, I added some Black & White Bold Check Ribbon, some more of the pretty Crochet Lace and a piece of White Pom Pom Ribbon.  I also tucked in a few Milk White Double Head Stamens underneath the holly berries and ivy that were cut from wool felt.  I hung the mini kraft tag (JOY) from a Rusty Pear- Shaped Clip from the Embellishments section.  These adorable Pins are currently sold out.  But, for anyone (US only) who places an order at RRR this week and lets me know, I'll send you one dozen of these cuties.
I added a Flatback White Pearl to the tiny snowflake.  I also made another cute Santa cinnamon stick and it's hung with a length of Red Satin Ribbon.  I realize there's a lot going on with this project.  If you have any questions, just let me know.  There's always lots of great inspiration here on the RRR Blog and lots of great shopping at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Thanks so much for visiting today, and please stop by again soon.

Blessings,
Karen
