Hello friends of RRR! Today I have a quick card to share with you that I made for a friend of the family using one of the beautiful ribbons in this month's Ribbon Club Assortment. I hate having to make cards like this, which is probably the reason I don't have any in my stash.
And here's a close-up of that distressed ribbon treatment:
To make my big, fluffy bow I used my Bow it All Tool from Zutter . I made my bow with 4 loops in the back at 3" and with 3 loops in the front at 2".
To make my card cohesive and a little more distressed, I used some gold Adirondack Paint. I just globbed a little on my finger and went over a few of the edges of everything, adding an extra "glob" here and there just to give it a little more texture.
I generally would use white or cream paint to do this, but since I was going for a bit of a more masculine feel, I decided to try the gold paint. I do like the way that it turned out. Quite the old vintage feel on this one.
