Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Have you had a chance to play with the April Ribbon Club Assortment yet?  This elegant Yellow and Grey Mix is like sunlight and shadow, and I just love how chic it is!  Today I've used the Charcoal Shimmer Satin and Yellow/Grey Chevron Stripe Grosgrain to adorn this shabby chic beauty of a card.

I love the way the Charcoal Shimmer Satin grounds all the bright yellow hues in this 5" x 7" card folio.  The soft shimmer is so elegant! 

I love to add a little ribbon inside my cards as well.  It creates texture and adds an extra surprise for the recipient.    

The side pocket contains a 4" x 6" magnet.I used the Charcoal Shimmer Satin and Yellow/Grey Chevron Striped Grosgrain to create a border on the bottom of the magnet.  Then I topped it with a sweet little bow and posy combination.

TIP: Use Scor-Tape to attach ribbon to paper.  It's quick, neat and easy.  And it holds everything perfectly in place! I attached the 1/2" wide Shimmer Satin with 1/2" Scor-Tape, and the grosgrain with 1/4" Scor-tape.  

I hope I've shared some tips and ideas that you can use in your own crafting adventures and inspired you to get your craft on.

Thanks for stopping by!
