Thinking of You Greeting Card

 Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a greeting card I created with beautiful trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I just love the bright cheerful palate of this greeting card. I created it with a spring inspired collection with stylized flowers for a more updated vibe. 

To keep the layers from looking busy I used a apple green cardstock as solid borders. There's also several dimensional layers for depth.

I've combined flowers from RRR and Little Birdie Crafts for a nice full arrangement. It's finished off with pretty pink plaid ribbon.

Wishing you all a happy and productive day : ) G

America the Beautiful Shaker Card


Photoplay America the Beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon May 2022 Ribbon Club Kathy Clement

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Every year I look forward to the Red, White and Blue Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon. It has never disappointed me, but this year it is extra fabulous!  You'll find stars, stripes, dots and solids in vibrant shades of red, white and blue in this Patriotic Ribbon Club!  It inspired me to create this great big shaker card folio. 

Really Reasonable Ribbon May 2022 Ribbon Club Photoplay America the Beautiful Kathy Clement

This 5 3/4" x 8 1/4" top fold card doubles as home decor, and it serves as a mini album to hold all your fabulous photos.  Here's how I put that Patriotic Ribbon Club Assortment to work.

  1. Create a border with Red Satin and Electric Blue Swiss Dot Ribbon. Use Scor-Tape to attach the ribbon to the card front before you adhere it to the card base. 
  2. Add Red Swiss Dot Ribbon Bows to the corners of the shaker element.  Then top them with a little Ivory Burlap String Bow
Now you're ready to dress up the inside of this card folio!

Score and fold a row of 3x4 images to create a little pull out folio on the top of the card.  

This gives you room for small photos and journaling, too. There's ample room to add a large photo behind this feature.

Create a 5 1/2" x 6" mini folio to tuck into the bottom pocket. This gives you room for even more photos! 

The hidden side pocket inside is a great place to tuck a couple of Polaroid style photo mats.  Remember to leave the top and one side unglued so that it's easy to tuck your photo behind the frame.

Flap features add even more fun to this mini folio.  As a bonus, you can leave the card out as part of your patriotic display this summer!

I hope I've shared some ideas to help you make use of this month's beautiful Ribbon Club.  Have fun with it!

Believe in Miracles

Hello crafty friends and Happy Monday to you all! Today's project was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful ribbons, embellishments and flowers all found at the RRR Store.
I started with my base for my Memorydex card set, then cut the top with a decorative edge die, then layered this darling design paper on top. I did add a sticker border in between the two designs. Next I cut out the flower shaker using the My Makers Movement dies, and added some shaker sprinkles to the inside. I decided to add a big bow treatment, and started with some tulle, then diagonal brown striped ribbon, and then the satin pearl pink ribbon, I also added some bead berry spray in white, and then the darling mini sweetheart blossoms, 2-tone chelsea rose. lastly I added some dots, Heart Gem and a sentiment chipboard piece

 Thank you so much for looking and have a lovely day! Hugs to all,

Live Life in Full Bloom

Welcome back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, everyone.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at this sweet Spring card I created using some beautiful accents from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Whether you're already a fan of Really Reasonable Ribbon or if you've never yet visited this AMAZING store, you're sure to find many wonderful things to help you expand your creativity.  Not only do they carry every trim imaginable, but they also have SO much more.
This card started with basic black cardstock and a patterned paper from Whimsy Stamps' Fabulous Florals 6x6 Paper Pad.  I machine stitched my papers together including the piece of white watercolor paper that I painted with Lilac, Raspberry and Concord Oxide Inks.  I also stenciled a pink floral background using Spun Sugar Oxide Ink.  One my base was put together, I added a stamped sentiment from Echo Park  But....I simply couldn't stop there.  Oh, NO!  I had to add some pretty touches, and that's where Really Reasonable Ribbon come in to play.  How sweet!
I wrapped some Mint Green Baker's Twine around my card.  Next, I attached a floral cluster that includes some Solid Black Baker's TwineMulberry Leaves, a few Double Head Stamens and a few Miniature Pastel Sweetheart Blossoms.  Yes, there are lots of beautiful accents waiting for you at RRR.  We all hope that you'll join us next Friday, May 13, for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.  You could be the lucky winner of this month's GORGEOUS Ribbon Club Assortment.  Thanks again for visiting today, and please stop by again soon.

Fresh Squeezed Greeting Card

 Hey there friends as crafty peeps! Ginny here to add some fresh squeezed inspiration to your day. I just gotta you have a favorite trim that you haven't used for a bit then rediscover it and you're like ohhh how I've missed you???? For me it's the Plaid Ribbon Black Bold Check. It's just so perfect for these more farmhouse inspired greeting cards.

This is a striking and bold color palate combined with the lemon image.

Solid black cardstock borders help to keep these layered patterns from looking too busy.

The best part? Flowers and trim of course!  

Wishing everyone  a happy and productive day : ) G
