Good Old Sport Masculine Birthday Card

Really Reasonable Ribbon: Good Old Sport Masculine Birthday Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Do you struggle with embellishing your masculine cards? Well, help is on the way! I created this Graphic 45 Good Old Sport Masculine Birthday card, and wanted to add ribbon. Because we all card is complete without a little bit of ribbon! And men can be awfully squeamish about getting a card that is ribbon adorned, so you have to be careful what you use. Thankfully, Really Reasonable Ribbon has some great options that will fit the bill, and keep your guys from getting the heebie jeebies. Check this out:

This 7/8" Black Satin ribbon is as stylish as an Armani tux! It adds a soft sheen and elegant feel to this Good Old Sport masculine birthday card. And I just love the way a touch of black anchors a design and pulls all those different patterned layers together. This ribbon is soft and supple and comes in a rainbow of colors, and varied widths. It's a great option for a bow like this one, as it holds its shape really well. I tied this elegant double loop bow with the help of my Zutter Bow-it-All. If you would like to watch this bow being tied by Bonnie, our fearless leader at RRR, here's a quick video that I think you will find very helpful. Just click on the play button to view.

I know you all like to see how I finish the insides of my cards, so here ya go!

A little stamping, more layered papers and a fun baseball theme for my baseball loving son! If you haven't checked out RRR's You Tube Channel, you really should! Bonnie has a bunch of fantastic video tutorials to address your bow tying questions. Why not grab a cuppa and spend a little time upping your ribbon tying skills? You'll be glad you did! Thanks for stopping by!
