Photoplay Add Another Candle Birthday Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! It was a rainy, dark and blustery spring day when I put this Add Another Candle Birthday Card together. The vibrant colors and playful patterns brought the sunshine right into my studio! I love when that happens, don’t you?
If you are looking for a quick and easy way to dress a card up in its party best, I highly recommend ribbon! The right ribbon gives a card its own personality. Take this ruffled pink gingham ribbon, for example. I stitched it to the base of the focal image. Then, I wrapped it with a few layers of Baker’s Twine and tied a bow. It’s such a simple thing to do, but it really elevated the design of this card.
TIP: Always cut ribbons and trims a little wider than the card. Then wrap the cut ends behind the panel for a clean and professional finish.
TIP: Pull colors from the paper collection when you are choosing embellishments and ribbons. Really Reasonable Ribbon has a pretty selection of 1/4″ wide gingham ribbons that I really like! For this card, cut 1 piece of pink, yellow and orange gingham ribbon. Then tie them together using your Bow-it-All Tool. Top it off with a pretty button and you’ve got really pretty bow cluster.
A Peek Inside
Add a pocket inside your easel card. The pocket serves two purposes: first, it acts as a stopper or brake for the easel mechanism on your card. Then, it provides you with a handy spot to tuck in a little gift card wallet. Everyone loves a birthday surprise!
It seems like no matter how many I make, I never have enough birthday cards on hand. So I think I’ll go ahead and make a stack of these cheery cards to have on hand when the next birthday rolls around.
