Hello, Ribbon Lovers!
Do you remember the magazine, The Saturday Evening Post? They were famous for their amazing cover art, much of it done by Norman Rockwell. I've always loved this Graphic 45 "A Place in Time" Halloween image which uses one of his famous covers, and decided to make just one more Halloween card because, let's face it, Halloween cards are fun to make!
Black and White Houndstooth Ribbon. This ribbon is soooo luxurious and ties the most beautiful bows. They are spook-tacular!
orange and black burlap and a gorgeous trellis rose that I inked up with some chalk inks and spritzed with gold glitter spray.
orange canvas color band ribbon. This is easy as pie to do. Just punch out a couple of heavy cardstock circles (my circle punch is 1 3/8" in diameter, and that seemed just about right). Glue the circles together. Run 1/8" wide Scor-Tape around the perimeter of the circle and stick the inside edge of your ribbon to it, gathering it as you go. Use Scor-tape or a glue dot to secure the cut end of the ribbon to the center of the chipboard circles. Then, adhere your chipboard sticker with some foam adhesive and press down to secure. I punched holes in the button and tied a burlap string bow through the center. I love the way this balances out the card.
Zutter-Bow-it-All Tool. If you don't have this tool, maybe the Great Pumpkin will bring it to you for Halloween! If you have it, but you haven't figured out how to use it, be sure to watch Bonnie's easy to follow videos on the Really Reasonable Ribbon YouTube Channel. You'll be tying bows like a pro in no time!
Hope you have a super weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
