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!
