Photoplay Autumn Greetings Card by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It's Kathy here with a sweet Autumn themed card made with the August Ribbon Club Assortment and lovely burlap string.  Fall is the perfect time to add a little rustic texture to your card creations, and burlap string is the perfect way to do it!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Hedgehogs and Pumpkins Satin Ribbon
Here are some quick and easy tips for making this 5x7 top fold card:

  • First, build your card front separate from the card base.  This way, you can wrap your ribbon and string around the front panel.  Once the card front is complete, you can adhere it to the card base.
  • Next, add a pop of pattern, color and design with a Hedgehog and Pumpkins Satin Ribbon Border.  Secure this near the base of the card front with 1/4" Scor-Tape.  Leave the cut ends long so you can wrap them around the sides for a nice, neat finish. 
  • Wrap the left hand side of the card with Antique Gold and Brown Burlap String. Leave the ends long enough that you can tie on some cute tea themed charms and tie a bow.
  • Create a bow cluster with Mixed Earth Tone Magnolias , Trellis Roses, and a burlap string bow. I just love the rustic texture this adds to the card.

You have to tuck a tea bag into a tea themed card, right?  So I created a little tea wallet and tag for the pocket inside this card.  The Antique Gold and Brown Burlap String look great on that little tag, don't they?

As summer winds down, I love breaking out my fall papers, ribbons and embellishments.  The changing of the seasons is always a nice change of pace.  Have you been creating any fun fall projects?  I'd love to hear about them!

Wishing you joy and creativity today!
