Guest Designer Cathleen Torina



Hi! It's Cathleen Torina here with you today from Crooked Card Creations. I'm delighted to be Guest Designer here at Really Reasonable Ribbon, if you're familiar with my work you'll know I love ribbon and I was sent a fabulous selection to work with! Here's what I made!

 
I found this awesome ribbon weaving tutorial on Youtube. I used the 1/4 inch white satin ribbon to make the heart wreath and one inch satin ribbon for the bow. I secured the heart wreath with Scor-Tape also available at RRR. Here are some of the other supplies that I used: Cherry Lynn Designs Heart Die, Pearls, SU Heart Punch, Martha Stewart Love Punch
 
I could not resist making this sweet Easter card once I received this beautiful shimmer ribbon in the April Ribbon Club Assortment. Here are some of the other supplies I used: Quickutz Egg Die, Cuddlebug Embossing Folder, Martha Stewart Flower Punch, PTI Banner Die, Paper Source Leaf Punch, Pearls
 


For this next card I just loved this sweet pink dotted ribbon from the April Ribbon Club Assortment. Some of the other supplies include: Cuddlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, PTI Banner Die, Puffy Hearts from my stash. Thank you so much for taking a peek at my cards!

Your first project is *amazing*! I am in awe. Love how you chose to highlight the ribbons and used simple papers so they could shine.
