Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Hello, friends.  It's Karen posting today.  All of us Really Reasonable Ribbon are hoping that you'll "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", and we know that if you treat yourself to some new ribbons, twines, strings, lacesSeam Binding or ANY of the fabulous products they carry; it's SURE to be merry.  I always have SO much fun when I create a card adorned with some of their GORGEOUS trims.
I used some basic red cardstock and then a piece of corrugated cardboard to create the base.  I cut the frame using a Scalloped Frame Die-Cut from Taylored Expressions.  In the center of the frame, I used a piece of white watercolor paper that I rubbed with Vintage Photo Oxide Ink to distress.  I used a sentiment stamp from Paper Sweeties.  I used lots of Scor-Tape to secure everything in place securely.  It's a FABULOUS Adhesive.
I added a few die-cut snowflakes and I placed a White Flatback Pearl Accent in the center of each one.   There are so many great Embellishments in the RRR Store.  The gorgeous ribbon I used on this card is a May Arts canvas trim.  I used more of the wonderful Scor-Tape to securely attach the trim to my card.  I also tied some Red & White Plaid Houndstooth Ribbon into the pretty bow.
No matter what kind of card or project you're making, Really Reasonable Ribbon is sure to have the perfect trimsAdhesivesHeadband/Hair AccessoriesEmbellishmentsFlowers and more to help you.  There's also lots of great inspiration on the RRR Blogspecial information about sales and promotions, and our FUN Blog Hop on the 13th of every month.  We hope that you'll stop by often.  Have a merry and creative week.

Blessings,

Celebrate the Season Greeting Card

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


I love the homespun appeal of this card.  The palate is not so traditional. I love the sweet pops of pink and blue.

I created these flowers to coordinate perfectly.  They're finished off with double head stamens and a bow made with the beautiful Coral Rose Mini Check Ribbon.

Older and Wiser

Hello, everyone! It is Gloria with you again! I am taking a break from Christmas projects to share a masculine birthday card! My oldest son turns (GULP) 31 on December 12th and I need a card. Two birds...one stone!

Despite having a husband, two sons, three brothers, many nephews, and one awesome great-nephew, I never seem to make enough masculine cards! I am always scrambling at the last minute to make one! And it's not as if I don't have masculine papers or other embellishments, because believe me, I do! I just love to do flowers and ribbons and sparkle more! 
I pulled out this beautiful paper from Authentique (Mister Collection) for my card. I love the colors of this collection - brown, rust, charcoal, gray, navy. So masculine and so vintage! 

I chose one of the ephemera cards for my focal point...but gave it a bit of a make-over to change the date to my son's birth year, 1991. I love the "older and wiser" sentiment, too.  

For the trim I used the stunning 3/8" Charcoal Satin with Grosgrain Edge ribbon. I love this ribbon color and think I need to get it in all the sizes...maybe in a spool....  The color is not black nor gray nor navy, but just a bit of all of those colors! 

I wrapped some Navy Burlap String around the center of the ribbon and attached it all to the back of the panel. I then tied a knot with a short bit of the 3/8" Charcoal Satin with Grosgrain Edge ribbon. This is a simple, yet masculine way to add ribbon and trim to a card without using any big loopy bows. (The men in my life are not that into loopy bows!)

I added a lining to the inside of the card and stamped a birthday sentiment, plus added some bits of paper to trim out the inside of the card. There is still plenty of space to write a message.
I glued three metal studs to the lower right corner of the card to finish it off. 

Thank you so much for joining me today!

Warm Wishes for a Golden Christmas

Really Reasonable Ribbon, Old Gold Checkerboard Satin Ribbon, Graphic 45 Warm Wishes, Kathy Clement, Kathy by Design

 Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  One of the things I love the  most about the holidays is that you get to bling up your cards and projects with lots of shiny things!  Take this gorgeous Old Gold Checkerboard Satin Ribbon, for instance.  It adds such a lovely vintage shine and texture to the composition of this Warm Wishes Christmas card. Gold Metallic String Bows layered on top add just that extra bit of subtle sparkle.

Layered ribbon borders are another way to add holiday elegance to a design.  I've used Scor-Tape to create this layered border using ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment. The Copper and Gold Confetti Dots Grosgrain Ribbon makes me think of pretty Christmas ornaments hanging on the tree! 

There's not much time left on the clock to get your Christmas projects made, but you can still find lots of great Christmas Ribbon in the RRR Shop. 

Wishing you all a warm and cozy day!

Cheerio,

kathy

Merry Christmas Treat Pocket Tag

 
Hello crafty friends and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I'm sharing another fun Christmas pocket tag, this one is a pocket one I designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon, it can hold hot cocoa and a stir stick, or candys or whatnot. Love making these as they are so fun to create and give as gifts.
Love that you can take your large dies, and create these pockets, and then decorate them up using other dies and embellishments. I used the beautiful ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon, one is a Forest Green Satin, and the other is a christmas plaid. I used the Kadoodle Bug Designs Christmas cup ginger that I had put together last year. Love these! The sentitment tags are stampinup! I added some white dots, and then a little santa hat button up on the top bow.
