Authentique “Fabulous” Retro Style Birthday Card

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.

Ivory Burlap string makes the greatest loopy bows and I just can’t seem to stop using it!

A Peek Inside this retro style birthday card

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!

Cheerio,

Remember You Are Fabulous Card

RRR Red and/or Pink Challenge: Remember You Are Fabulous Card with Authentique Fabulous Collection

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It’s time for another fun challenge over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, Bonnie says it’s time to break out some RED and/or PINK.  I spent a happy afternoon with the January Ribbon Club Assortment and Authentique’s Fabulous Collection. The result is this fun retro style Remember You Are Fabulous Card.

Pink and/or Red: Why Choose?

I have to tell you, peeps…the ribbons in the January Ribbon Club assortment are FABULOUS!  There are so many great little prints, and so many wonderful textures.  As you can see, I had fun using them!  Red Chevron Striped Grosgrain Ribbon borders add texture, color and pattern to my design. And how much do I love the Random Hearts and Confetti Dots Grosgrain Ribbon?  Lots and lots, that’s how much!  Red Satin with a Grosgrain Edge lends wonderful shimmer and shine to my double loop bow.  These ribbons just play perfectly with the pink, red and aqua color palette of this fun paper collection.

The Party’s on the Inside

I scored this 5″ x 7″ top fold card with a 1/4″ spine so that I could load up the inside with all sorts of fun goodies.

The pocket on top holds a little sweet treat and a fun place to write a Valentine greeting.  The lower pocket holds a hand stamped bookmark and a fun fridge magnet.  I used the random hearts and confetti grosgrain ribbon to top the bookmark.  The whole project is a great big celebration of pink and red!

Now it’s YOUR turn!  Link up your own Pink and/or Red masterpiece on the RRR BLOG. You’ll find all the details HERE.  Be sure to visit the projects from the rest of the team for more inspiration.  I can’t wait to see what you make!

Remember you are fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy
