Springtime at the Farmhouse


Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Slimline Box Card by Kathy Clement with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Let's take a break from winter with this Springtime at the Farmhouse card.  I've dressed it up with 3/8" Pink Gingham and 5/8" Pink Diamond Satin Ribbons from the February Ribbon Club Assortment.  If the springtime sweetness of this color combination doesn't melt the snow, I don't know what will!

TIP: Create a quick and easy border with ribbon!  Layer the 3/8" Pink Gingham over the 5/8" Pink Diamond Satin ribbon for lots of texture and springtime softness.

TIP: Use ribbon to draw the eye to this somewhat small focal image. Cluster ribbons and flowers around the center image so it  doesn't end up getting lost.

TIP: Add a touch of sparkle to your ribbon clusters with White Iridescent Metallic String.  I love this stuff so much, I buy it by the spool! 

You can also use ribbon inside your card!  It really dresses up the little packet of honey I tucked inside this box pocket.  Now the whole card feels like a gift!

I really loved the pastel ribbon assortment from this month's Ribbon Club.  They really brightened up  the dark and dreary month of February, reminding me that Spring would soon be back in season. It's not too late to get this pretty packet of pastel ribbons!  You can sign up today at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Check out the details HERE

I hope this cheery card has warmed up this winter day!  

Thanks for stopping by!

We'd love to hear what you have to say
