Let There Be Peace

Hey there, everyone!  It's Karen Letchworth today sharing a fun card today that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using a fun new technique I saw on Pinterest.  This is a great way to use up little scraps of ribbon you might have laying around and don't know what to do with.  I used lots of great ribbons from the Ribbon Club Assortment and several other Really Reasonable Ribbon favorites.
I used two ornament die-cuts to cut the shapes from a piece of patterned paper and cut the ornament tops from shiny gold paper.  I tied some gorgeous Gold Metallic String on their tops.  Then, I used a piece of white card stock and strategically placed strips of ribbons and lace to fill in the die-cut holes using pieces of Scor-Tape to keep them in place.  You could try this technique with any die-cut shape (trees, leaves, hearts, etc.), and Really Reasonable Ribbon has all the perfect trims to help you achieve this look for any season or occasion.
I used pieces of all these sweet Really Reasonable Ribbon trims to achieve this look: Lipstick Red Seam BindingRRR Select Swiss Dots Grosgrain Green AppleMoss Green Micro GinghamBurlap Center Stitch GreenCanvas Color Band With Stitched Edge in RedJuliet Natural Crochet Lace1/4" Chevron Striped Twill CeleryRed and White Plaid Houndstooth RibbonDusty Olive Seam Binding, and 3/4" Red Striped Twill Chevron.  I also added a "peace" die-cut, and tied a long length of Solid Red Baker's Twine around the top of my card.
The Gold Metallic String is really a must-have for Christmas cards and projects.  You will absolutely LOVE it; just as much as you'll love ALL of Really Reasonable Ribbon's amazing ribbons, trims, twines, and laces.  Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great week.  Be sure to stop by Really Reasonable Ribbon to play along in their FUN CHALLENGE, for inspiration, and to check out all their fabulous ribbons, trims and fun new Embellishments, too!

Happy crafting,
