Really Reasonable Ribbon Vintage Blessings Card Duo
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! I don’t know what it is about fall, but it always inspires feelings of gratitude in my heart. Maybe it’s thankfulness for the cooler weather after a long hot summer. Perhaps it’s the bright blue sky and gorgeous fall colors. Or it could be the promise of Thanksgiving on the horizon. Whatever it is, it sure does make my heart happy. Today I’ve used Really Reasonable Ribbon to add the finishing touches to a Simple Stories Vintage Blessings Card Duo. I hope these cards will stir up that same thankful feeling in your heart.
Vintage Blessings Easel Card
Felt flowers are my latest obsession, and I love the fall color they add to this 5″ x 7″ vertical easel card. (I’ll share product links below the post.)
I searched all through my ribbon cart for something that would pull all these vibrant colors together. This rustic Plaid Ribbon in Rust and Ivory tones was equal to the task.
I love the way this triple loop bow draws the eye to the sentiment on my cute little house. Topping the ribbon with a Natural Burlap String Bow and an acorn adds to the card’s rustic feel.
Like all easel cards, this one folds down for mailing.
Inside, I’ve added a small treat pocket and a sentiment.
A Little Bit of Ribbon Goes a Long Way
I love to find creative ways to use my ribbon scraps. This little piece of Ivory/Rust ribbon left over from tying the triple loop bow was too small to use. Or was it?
As it turns out, it was just the right size to finish off the safety pin embellishment on this 5″ x 7″ card. I simply snipped the ends, slipped it through the circle on the end of the safety pin, then tied it in place with Natural Burlap String.
It’s a small detail that makes a big impact, drawing the eye to an embellishment that might otherwise be overlooked. I love that about ribbon!
Here’s a look at the other details on this happy little card.
I hope I’ve shared some ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures. If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
Wishing you a heart of gratitude…
