Autumn Days Ribbon and Botanica Bella

RRR Autumn Days Ribbon Collection and Graphic 45 Botanica Bella

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!

It’s the beginning of a new month, and you know what that means!  There’s a gorgeous new Ribbon Club Assortment at Really Reasonable Ribbon!  Feast your eyes on these scrumptious ribbons!


I combined gorgeous Autumn Days Ribbon and Botanica Bella papers from G45 to create a beach themed card.

Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable RibbonYou wouldn’t normally think of using autumn colors like this on a beach themed card, but they are just the perfect match for these beautiful Botanica Bella papers from Graphic 45. I found a stack of ancient mulberry paper in the Closet of Shame and I’ve been using it in my crafting.  I find I like the texture it adds when used as a layering medium as I did here.  The Moss and Cream Plaid ribbon match it so well!

Botanicabella 02aI love the way the Tangerine with Gold Shimmer Satin Ribbon pulls out the rusty tones in the paper layers.  And when it’s layered up with more of the Moss and Cream plaid…well, I’m in love!  I also added some great texture by adding a small piece of Debra Natural Crochet Lace to my background panel.  Just a little bit of this beautiful lace makes a big statement!

Botanicabella 03aHere’s the inside of the card….with room to write a personal note.

And yes…I love sea horses.  Especially when they are combined with beautiful papers and ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!



This item is available for purchase in my ETSY shop.

    Such a striking card, Kathy! Your knack for adding ribbon to a creation is just incredible! The papers you’ve paired together are fantastic, especially the mulberry paper! I haven’t thought about using that in my creations in many years…and I know I have some in my stash somewhere! LOL I also love how you’ve finished the inside! Simply divine!
    Huge Hugs,

    Kathy, Another beautiful card; I love the way you layer up all those papers, and then the special way you use your embellishments to pull together such amazing scenes! You really know how to showcase those papers using the ribbons, mulberry paper, embellishments and that trademark Kathy stitching! There are so many wonderful details to gaze at. Purchasing one of your cards is a wise investment, you get SO much when you receive one of your cards. They are works of art, inside and out! Big hugs!
