Down on the Farm

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to farm country!  I've used some beautiful ribbons from the June 2021 Southwest Vibe Ribbon Club Assortment to make this cute Down on the Farm Fun Fold Card.  I wanted you to see how versatile this month's assortment is.  It works perfectly for trendy Southwest influenced projects, but it also pairs beautifully with farmhouse style!  How fun is that?

The pretty bow cluster on the front flap of this fun fold card is made with Light Coral Taffeta Ribbon and Light Coral Satin Swiss Dots Ribbon from the club assortment.  They complement the shades of aqua in the paper collection and they also pick up on the coral flowers in the background. 

I also created a little nest for my mama hen using Natural Burlap String from the shop. I love this stuff so much, I buy it by the spool!   Here's a peek at the rest of the panels in this barnyard beauty.

The front flap is held in place with a hidden magnet. I think fun fold cards are exciting to open.  You never know what is coming around the next fold!   Don't you just love these sweet barnyard critters?

You can create a little pocket with a decorative flap inside the card by scoring and folding one of the 4" x 6 journal cards.  Fold the back side of the image to the front, dress it up with some ephemera bits, then glue down the sides to make a pocket. 

If you glue down just the outside edges of the coral flowers, you make a tuck spot for this 3" x 4" mini notecard.  This is a great place to tuck in a little note, or tea bag or gift card.

Have you had a chance to play with your Southwest Vibe Ribbons yet?  What did you make?  I'd love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!
