Authentique Fabulous Retro Style Birthday Card for RRR
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! March is nearly over! How did that happen so fast? I have one last Really Reasonable Ribbon March Ribbon Club project to share with you. My sweet sister in law had a birthday this month, and I made this retro style birthday card especially for her. Becky is one of my favorite people in the whole world. She has the greatest laugh, tells the best stories, and throws the best parties ever! So I went “all out” on this fun “If the Crown Fits, Wear It!” card.
Isn’t this a fun color palette? It takes me back to the 50’s! Tropic Taffeta Ribbon steals the show on this fun card made with Authentique’s Fabulous paper collection. Ivory Burlap string makes the greatest loopy bows and I just can’t seem to stop using it!
This is one of my famous “chunky” cards. In fact, it was so chunky, I had to devise a magnetic closure to keep it shut! To dress up the closure, I added some cute wood icons. Becky and I share a private joke about coffee and doughnuts.
A Peek Inside this retro style birthday card
Do you ever get lost in the details when you are creating? Yeah, that happens to me all the time. But I’m kind of glad I followed the muse this time, because I super love these little tags tied onto the tiny clothes hanger. Are they cute or what?
Remember poodle skirts? This cute little 3×4 journal tag is matted and backed with magnetic paper so that Becky can display it on her fridge. And there has to be chocolate in the pocket of this retro style birthday card or it wouldn’t be from me!
This was such a fun card to make, and Becky loved receiving it in the mail. There is just nothing as personal as receiving a hand made card in the mail on your birthday. I even managed to get it there on time!
Thanks for stopping by!
