Summer Elegance Shaker Card

Really Reasonable Ribbon Pink Ivory Mauve Variegated Ribbon Shaker Card by Kathy Clement

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It's hard to believe, but here in North Carolina, Summertime is peeking around the corner.  Creamy white blossoms on the magnolia trees fill the air with their sweet fragrance.  Their appearance inspired this Summer Elegance Shaker Card.  Soft shades of pink ribbons seemed to be the perfect partner for this 5" x 7" top fold card.

Heartfelt Creations Sweet Magnolia Shaker Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon by Kathy Clement

As you all probably know, I love to use ribbon to create a border on a card.  Medium Pink Gingham Ribbon complemented the floral images in the paper collection perfectly.  Dress up the border with a ribbon slide from the RRR Embellishment Category

I dressed up my handmade magnolia blossoms with a poufy Light Pink, Ivory and Mauve Sheer Variegated Ribbon bow.  Tying a triple loop bow is not as hard as you might think.  Just break out your Zutter-Bow-it-All Tool and you'll have a perfectly poufy bow in no time flat!   Top with with an Iridescent Metallic String Bow for the perfect finishing touch. 

Here's a peek inside the card...which is actually more like a gift, thanks to all the goodies tucked inside.

I hope I've shared some tips and tricks that you can use in your next ribbon adventure.

Thanks for stopping by!
