Really Reasonable Ribbon August Ribbon Club Collection: Autumn Hues Tag Pocket Greeting Card
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Summer is winding down here in North Carolina. While the afternoons are still quite hot, there’s a lovely coolness in the early morning and evening hours. The days are getting shorter, too. These subtle changes inspired me to create this Autumn Hues Tag Pocket Greeting Card. My RRR Autumn Harvest Ribbon Club Assortment arrived in my mailbox just in time for me to make this pretty card/tag combo!
Usually, I put my pockets on the insides of my cards. But change is good for the soul. So, this time around I created a fun tag pocket on the front of a tall, skinny kraft card base.
This side fold card measures 4.25″ wide x 7″ tall. I tore a piece of Kaisercraft Golden Grove designer paper to create this rustic looking pocket. Moss/Cream 5/8″ wide plaid ribbon looks amazing with this paper collection!
The tag fits right inside, which is fun change of pace. I topped the tag with Moss/Cream Plaid ribbon and Ivory Crochet Lace. The flower cluster features a WOC Mixed Earth Tones Chrysanthemum and Cosmos. I sponged on some Wild Honey and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Inks to increase the golden tones in the flowers.
Autumn Hues Tag Pocket Greeting Card: A Peek Inside
I have as much fun decorating the insides of my cards as I do the outside. Often, I will layer up scraps of designer paper to create a sort of collage effect as I did here.
This gift card pocket is tied shut with 3/8″ Moss/Cream Plaid Ribbon.
How much fun will it be for the recipient of this card to open each section and find a yummy chocolate treat inside? I just love interactive elements in cards!
Are you ready for fall? It’s my favorite season of the year. While I get a little sad at the fact that the days are getting shorter, the promise of golden leaves, bright blue skies and cool, crisp air fills me with anticipation.
I hope I’ve shared some tips and tricks that you can use in your own crafty adventures. If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
