Dotted Swiss and Gingham Pumpkin

Hi there Scrappers! It's Aphra here with my very first Really Reasonable Ribbon DT post. Wooo hoooo!!! So excited. My card this week was inspired by some fabulous Fall ribbons from the RRR Store: Orange Assortment, Swiss Dots Autumn Assortment, and Dark Brown Gingham.

For the base of my card, I cut a 5" x 5" piece of dark brown Core'dinations cardstock and topped it with a 4 5/8" by 4 5/8" piece of Bella Boulevard One Fall Day patterned paper. Then, I took a Maya Road chipboard pumpkin and covered it with alternating pieces of ribbon. I precut the ribbon, added a strip of Scor-Tape to the back of each piece, and then layed it down. The Scor-Tape made it a breeze to attach the ribbon. Then, I turned the piece over and trimmed off the excess. I used my finger to lightly rub some liquid adhesive all around the border to keep the ribbon from fraying. (Ran out of No Fray. LOL!)

To finish off my sweet little pumpkin, I used ribbon loops to create a stem and leaves. Then I added a button embellished with orange baker's twine (my favorite way to finish off a button) and a simple sentiment tag with a rub-on from Imaginisce's Apple Cider collection.

Thanks for stopping by today, ladies! I had such a great time playing with ribbon that I think I'll be back next week. See ya then!
