Together Card Folio with Simple Stories Vintage Blessings and Textured Ribbon
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Time for another fabulous Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge! Once again, the theme is “anything goes” using ribbon or trim. I love using ribbon and trim to add texture to my cards. That’s what I’ve done with this Together Card Folio made with Simple Stories Vintage Blessings Collection.
Let’s look at all the ways I added texture to this cute vintage card folio:
- First, I machine stitched a double border around the card perimeter.
- Next, I used Turquoise Center Stitch Ribbon to create borders between my patterned papers.
- Then, I created a lovely little bow cluster with Turquoise Burlap Center Stitch Ribbon and crochet lace.
- Next, I added a couple of Tammy Tutterow Posie Part Felt Flowers and a small rolled up doily from my stash to my bow cluster.
- Finally, I added a stained wood word title to the card, as well as painted/embossed/distressed wood doilies beneath that cute little house. Which is where I want to live when I retire, just so you know!
Together Card Folio: A Peek Inside
Adding pockets, mini folios and little treats to a card like this turns it into an instant gift. This would make such a lovely hostess gift or a thoughtful housewarming gift….or even a “gee I’m glad you’re my friend” kind of gift.
The side pocket on the top of the card holds this vintage button card. I jazzed it up a little with a strip of washi tape. The tiny envelope is decorated with some die cuts from the collection. It holds a lovely tea bag.
The bottom pocket holds this little photo wallet. 4″ x 4.5″ photo wallet. To add texture here, I created a string closure from Natural Burlap String and a fuzzy vintage button from my stash. Can you see the honey stick peeping out of the pocket? That’s to go with the tea bag, of course!
Here’s a peeky inside the photo wallet. The little embellishments are glued just on one end, so photos can slip right behind them.
Now it’s YOUR turn!
