Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Tall and Skinny Card for the RRR Hop
Hello, Friends! Today I have a Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Tall and Skinny Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon March Blog Hop. You should be coming here from Karen’slovely blog. We are showcasing the gorgeous Garden Delights Ribbon Club Assortment this month. If you love spring flowers and gardening, these ribbons will make your heart happy!
Since I had just purchased these lovely Carta Bella Farmhouse Market papers, I decided to work with the coral toned ribbons from the collection. They are a perfect match up for the saturated hues and floral patterns.
Ribbon can be used in so many different ways when you are designing a card. Coral Rose Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon acts as a border along the base of this 4″ x 8 1/2″ cut away card.
Wrap the same iridescent metallic string around the top of the card to add a touch of shine. Then top with some flat back pearls to add a bit of elegance.

The inside of this card is pretty simple. Add a sentiment from the ephemera pack. Then make a quick and easy side pocket to hold a note card and a treat.
Mat the 4″ x 6″ journal card on cream cardstock so you can write a note on the back. And you knew there had to be tea tucked in somewhere, didn’t you?

Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Live True Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Friends! I’m inviting spring to burst upon us with this sweet and simple Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Live True Card. The sentiment on the front is from one of my favorite authors, Laura Ingalls Wilder. These are wise words and true, and the older I get, the more I believe them! These pretty Farmhouse Market papers are a perfect match up for the RRR March Ribbon Club Assortment. How great is that?
This 6×6 card features loads of paper layers, a die cut doily, pearls and posies. If that doesn’t entice springtime, then I don’t know what will! Pretty Coral Rose Satin Swiss Dots Ribbon works perfectly as a border and really helps the sentiment panel to pop.
Light Coral Diamond Satin makes for a pretty bow cluster when paired up with these flowers that I found in my stash. (retired Petaloo).
The inside of the card is sweet and simple, too. A lovely floral panel for writing a note covers the bottom half of the card. And a color matched tea bag is nested inside a small double pocket on the top. To make the double pocket, adhere the ends of the ephemera card on the sides of the note card pocket. So easy, but so pretty!
Sometimes, simple is just the ticket! I hope this Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Live True card has some simple tips, tricks and inspiration that you can use in your crafty adventures. If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
Authentique Purebred Pet Sympathy Card with the February Ribbon Club
Hello, Friends! Sometimes we have to send a sad card. This soft, vintage style Authentique Purebred Pet Sympathy Card is the perfect way to send your condolences, I’ve paired it up with elegant Blue, Ivory and Gold Plaid Ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon February Ribbon Club. As a matter of fact, all the ribbons in this month’s club work beautifully with this vintage collection.
Authentique Purebred Pet Sympathy Card: Building the Layers
Begin by creating a 5″ x 7″ top fold card base from kraft cardstock.
Next, mat a 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ panel of the gingham check on navy cardstock.
Then mat a 4″ x 6″ journal card on navy cardstock .
Die cut a Spellbinder’s Tiara Rondelle from navy cardstock. Cut in half from left to right.
Then die cut a Spellbinder’s Large Standard Oval from the paper pieced dog print. Adhere the Tiara Rondelle pieces top and bottom as seen in the photo.
Now, create a belly band with a 4 3/4″ x 3″ strip of the horizontal print. Adhere thin strips of navy cardstock on the top and bottom to separate the patterned papers.
Back the 3″ x 4″ image with dimensionals and adhere.
Authentique Purebred Pet Sympathy Card: Finishing Touches
Use your Zutter-Bow-It-All Tool to create a triple loop bow from the plaid ribbon. Arrange the flowers along the left hand side of the card. Place a dot of hot glue under the center of the arrangement. Fold the bow so that the knot is at the front and using the tip of your scissors, push the knot into the hot glue and hold for a second or two. Carefully pull out your scissors and fuss the bow.
To add to the vintage, shabby chic feel of this card, dry brush the edges of the paper layers with a little ivory chalk paint. Paint the wood icons with the same paint and when dry, brush very lightly with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Then adhere to the card. Add some pearls, vintage buttons, and paint spatters to finish off the design.

To me, nothing is as comforting as a cup of tea, so I tucked in a little tea bag in a simple pocket. Then I die cut a note card using the Spellbinder’s Cannetille Rectangle Die and tucked it in a side pocket. Then I stamped another cream card panel with a pet sympathy sentiment stamp, added a sticker from the Purebred Collection Kit , and adhered to the face of the pocket.

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.
