French Country Birthday Card

Hello Ribbon Loving Friends! Kathy Clement here to share an elegant French Country birthday card that has lots of layers, lots of gold embossing and oodles of scrumptious Really Reasonable Ribbon

French Country RRR 01

I have always loved this image from Graphic 45's French Country paper collection. When I received the gorgeous August Ribbon Club assortment, I knew this elegant Sherry Checkerboard Satin Ribbon would be the perfect complement to its Old World Charm. I used my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to help me tie the perfect triple loop bow. I frayed and inked a strip of the fabulously shabby chic Cotton Blend Vintage Travel Ribbon.  Because this ribbon is 2 1/2" wide, it makes a perfect belly band on a card. I saved some of the small threads and topped my satin bow with them and then added a button.

You can really see the dimension and embossing from this angle. I combined three of the chipboard tags with a bit of my favorite Natural Jute String to balance out the bow on the left hand side of the card.

Fraying the ends is easy...just use a craft pick to separate the strands.

More layers, and stamped greetings from Fiskars "Make a Wish" stamp set complete the card.
