Nautical Friendship Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Authentique Voyager Nautical Friendship Card by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  This Nautical Friendship Card is a quick and easy make thanks to some lovely ribbons and beautiful papers!  And how much do we love the sentiment on the cover?  I paired up three ribbons from the RRR February Ribbon Club with these gorgeous Authentique Voyager papers.  Let’s take a closer look!

Nautical Friendship Card: The Details

  • First, create a 5″ x 7″ top fold card base from kraft cardstock.
  • Next, stitch around the perimeter of the 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ navy blue stars paper.
  • Then, Cut a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ panel of the horizontal blue striped paper.  Mat this on slightly larger panels of cream and kraft cardstock.  Stitch around the perimeter.
  • Now, run 1/2″ Scor-Tape down the left hand side of the panel.  Let the ends of the tape run about 1″ longer than the height of the panel.
  • Burnish a piece of Tan Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon onto the Scor-Tape Border, then wrap the overhang around to the back side of the panel.  Now you have a really neat and clean edge top and bottom.
  • Then repeat this step using the Brown and Blue Chevron Striped Grosgrain Ribbon with 1/4″ Scor-Tape.
  • Adhere the panel to the card base.
  • Now, cut a double ended fish tail banner from a 3″ x 7″ panel of paper.  (To make fishtail ends, just fold the paper in half and make a diagonal cut from the fold to the corner.) Adhere to the card base.
  • Die cut an oval from the woodgrain paper.  Back with dimensionals and adhere.
  • Next, mat a 3″ x 4″ Life Card on both cream and kraft cardstock.  Back with dimensionals and adhere.

Finish the card with a gorgeous Light Navy Bow topped with Gold Metallic String and a gold button.  I poked around in the jewelry box to find this nautical pendant that was the perfect finishing touch!

Keep the inside shipshape with a simple pocket and a blank sentiment panel.

Ciao Bella Time for Home Shaker Card

Ciao Bella Time for Home Winter Blues Shaker Card Reneabouquets snowflake frame by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Ciao Bella Time for Home Shaker Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a Ciao Bella Time for Home  Shaker Card that is sure to chase away your winter blues!  The image inside the shaker frame reminds me so much of the home I grew up in.  Our house was situated in exactly the same spot as the one pictured here.    Living in Vermont, the streetlights came on around 3:30 in the afternoon during the winter months. The snow would glow with soft blue shades as the winter darkness closed in. And climbing that long icy hill in the dreary month of January was no picnic!  But there would be a hot cuppa, and a still-warm slice of Mom’s homemade bread waiting for me.  That promise of warmth and comfort kept me putting my feet one in front of the other as I trudged along past mammoth sized snowbanks, surrounded by the solitude that only winter provides.

Ciao Bella Time for Home Shaker Card: The Details

I’ve adorned this 5 1/2″ square card with lovely triple loop bow tied from grey plaid Really Reasonable Ribbon.  White Iridescent Metallic String adds a subtle shimmer to the bow cluster as well.   Tim Holtz Skeleton Leaves , flowers, pearls and a lovely snowflake frame add winter beauty to the card design.

TIP:  Adhere the shaker frame on the diagonal to create this pleasing diamond shape.

A Peek Inside

The inside of the card is very simply lined with more of the beautiful papers from this collection.  I created a small tea bag pocket and tucked in a fussy cut tag from the collection to complete the card design.

I have warm memories of my childhood home, but I must confess to you, I’m awfully glad to have married a Southern boy!  I find our North Carolina winters a LOT easier to endure than the ones from my childhood!

I hope I shared a some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Stay cozy!

Stamperia Shabby Rose Winter Butterflies Shaker Card

Stamperia Shabby Rose Winter Butterflies Shaker Card by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Stamperia Shabby Rose Winter Butterflies Shaker Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  This Stamperia Shabby Rose Winter Butterflies Shaker Card softens Winter’s blow with soft pink hues and delicate butterflies.  It’s unexpected, whimsical and oh, so pretty with RRR Dusty Rose Wrinkled Ribbon and Iridescent White Metallic String accents.

Shabby Rose Winter Butterflies Shaker Card: Preparing the Shaker Frame

The Reneabouquets Snowflake Frame makes a perfect shaker element for the card.  Here’s how to make it:

  • First, heat emboss the frame with Versamark Embossing Ink and WOW White Diamonds Embossing Glitter.
  • Next, cut a piece of clear acrylic cardstock to fit the back of the inner square.  Adhere with Dries Clear Glue, and be sure to clean away any adhesive that smooshes out.
  • Now, add a triple layer of Darice Adhesive Foam Strips to the back of the frame.
  • Cut a 5 1/2″ square mat of designer paper to cover the card front.
  • Then cut the butterfly/rose image to fit the frame.
  • Fill the center of the image with beads, buttons, sequins and glitter, then firmly press the prepared frame in place.
  • Die cut Tim Holtz Skeleton Leaves and emboss with the Wow powder.  Adhere in the right hand corner of the frame.
  • Tie a triple loop bow with your Zutter Bow it All Tool and adhere over the leaves.
  • Tie the loopy metallic string bow and adhere on top.
  • Add flowers and leaves from your stash.
  • Repeat in the upper left hand corner, but tie smaller bows and use smaller flowers.
Shabby Rose Winter Butterflies Shaker Card: A Peek Inside

The inside is lined with designer papers from the Shabby Rose pad.  Create a sentiment panel by die cutting cream cardstock with a Spellbinder’s Die (Card Creator/Detailed Scallops/Retired).  Cut a circle element from the paper collection in half to create a sweet little tea bag pocket.
