Really Reasonable Ribbon and Children’s Hour January Birthday Card
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! I have a fun January Birthday Card to share with you today. I made it with some fabby Really Reasonable Ribbon and gorgeous Graphic 45 papers from the new Children’s Hour Collection. Since I have a very special auntie who is celebrating a January birthday, I wanted to make her a very special January birthday card. So this one is for you Auntie Joyce! I hope your birthday is as special as you are.
I picked up on the blues and golds in the January pages by accenting my card with loads of ribbon. The belly band features one of my all time favorite ribbons: antique gold faux burlap ribbon with a wired edge. It adds wonderful texture to that gold pinstripe paper.
I wanted to add a little border on the top and bottom of this card, and found that this Antique Gold Canvas Color Band ribbon was the perfect choice. Then I added a big poufy bow tied with soft and shimmery Old Gold 3/8″ Satin with Gold Metallic Edges to add just the right amount of sparkle. It makes me think of a glass of champagne, and what could be more perfect for a January Birthday card? This was topped with a natural burlap string bow tied with red and antique gold burlap string.
I love to create pocket cards that I can stuff with all kinds of tags and goodies. For this January Birthday card, I tucked in a handmade card of darling vintage buttons, a little sentiment tag and a bookmark that I topped with a sweet silver mittens charm. I know lots of folks read books on their smart phones or Kindles, but I still like to turn the pages of a real book, and I’m betting Auntie Joyce does, too.
Here are all the goodies that were tucked into the pocket on display. I topped my tags with more of the old gold satin ribbon, but I also used a little snippet of Ivory, Rust and Gold Plaid ribbon to decorate my sentiment tag. I hope the rich colors and beautiful textures of this card will brighten my auntie’s birthday!
Thanks for stopping by!
Kathy, you have really outdone yourself. The card is especially great. I’m not even going to ask. I’m sure it sold as soon as you put it up. It really is beautiful though. This is one to be especially proud of yourself for.
