Ride ’em Cowboy Masculine Card with Ribbon
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! I have really enjoyed working with the Really Reasonable Ribbon Club Assortment this month. How about you? This Blue and Brown Ribbon Mix proved to be very versatile, working well on both masculine and feminine cards alike. Today’s Ride ’em Cowboy Masculine Card is made with Authentique Paper’s Frontier collection. I’ve used the Select Swiss Dots Tan w/Turftan Brown Dots Grosgrain Ribbon to add wonderful texture to this card.
After creating the 5″ x 7″ top fold card base, I fringed some natural canvas material to add extra texture to this fun card. Don’t you just love that quote from John Wayne?
Do you ever use ribbon to add a border to your cards? I love the texture it adds, and it certainly “ties” the bow in with the rest of the design! Scor-Tape is my “go to” adhesive when it comes to adding a ribbon border. It really holds, and does not bleed through the ribbon the way hot glue or liquid adhesive has a tendency to do.
TIP: Don’t toss those canvas strings away! I saved the pieces that were left over after fraying the edges of my canvas, then piled them up beneath this rusty star. I love the added texture!
Ride ’em Cowboy Masculine Card! A Peek Inside
The inside of this card is fully decorated with more papers from the Frontier Collection.
The top half of the card has a little gift card holder filled with a miniature Ghiradelli Chocolate.
The bottom half has a neat journal card that’s a perfect spot to write a personal message. Leaving the sentiment blank means that I can customize this card for any occasion.
I hope I’ve shared 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.
