Welcome back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  It's your crafty friend, Karen Letchworth, posting here today with a super sweet Valentine's Day card I created; and it features several of my favorite products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I have LOTS of favorites because they care LOTS of great products.  If you're not familiar yet with this FABUOUS shop, I do hope you'll stop by to check out all the AMAZING ribbon and trims as well as loads of other great and useful crafting supplies such as as Adhesives. Embellishments, Mulberry Flowers and SO much more.
This card was fun to make.  I started with a white cardstock base, and layered that with a fun patterned paper.  The top layer is another piece of the white watercolor cardstock that I stencilled with a fun heart  patterned stencil and some pink and red inks.  Next, I used a Papertrey Ink die-cut and some red (and pink) wool felt and ivory polka dot tulle to cut some fun stitching hearts.  I stitched the hearts using Solid Ivory Baker's Twine and filled the hearts with sequins.  You can see the sequins through the tulle.  The Baker's Twine comes in many lovely colors, and works well with stitching dies.
The sentiment is from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps and was stamped onto a little journalling square in black ink.  I topped that with some more of the Solid Ivory Baker's Twine, some Sweetheart Blossoms and Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms, small snippets of both Red and White Plaid Houndstooth Ribbon and Light Pink Ginagsome lovely Double Head Stamens.  They are SO pretty, and they add so much texture and personality to our cards and projects.  They're just $2.19 for a bundle of 400 - what a bargain!!!  They come in many colors and are just a wonderful accent.  Also, the Baker's Twine is a fantastic product.  It also comes in 50+ vibrant colors and costs just $1 for ten yards.  At that rate, you can buy several gorgeous colors of Baker's Twine.
The only other things I can think of are some machine stitching with pink thread, a stick pin, and the inked background.  There are LOTS of great products at Really Reasonable Ribbon to help you create something lovely.  I also used several strips of Scor-Tape to attach my papers together.  There are lots of great AdhesivesHair Accessory Supplies and more found at Really Reasonable Ribbon in addition to the OODLES of gorgeous ribbons and trims.  You can also visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog often for lots of great inspiration from our Design Team as well as information about special sales and promotions.  We enjoy having you stop by, and we really hope that you'll visit again soon.
