Chin Up Buttercup Tri-Fold Encouragement Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello Ribbon Lovers! I have had the best time this month playing with the Citrus Ribbons in the June Ribbon Club Assortment! I have played and played with these pretty ribbons and used up just about every single scrap. I had just enough left to squeeze in one more June Ribbon Club project before we turn the calendar over to the month of July. I think you’re going to get a grin or two out of this Chin Up Buttercup tri-fold greeting card made with Simple Stories Bloom and Grow papers.
It’s pretty hard not to smile when you’re working with these sunshiny ribbons! To begin this card, Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin and Citrus Striped Chevron Grosgrain were layered to create a header. Then I topped this with a little medallion that says, appropriately, “Chin Up Buttercup!”
Next, I wove Citrus Paint Splatter Grosgrain through the pickets in this rusted garden fence. Then I got busy layering up a double bow made with the last of my Maize Diamond Satin Ribbon and the Paint Splatter Grosgrain.
I’ve been walking in my neighborhood every morning, and finding the most gorgeous mailbox gardens I’ve ever seen, and that inspired me to fill this fence in with a bounty of pretty Petaloo flowers.
Now take a peek at the inside of the card, with just the first panel opened.
And here it is opened all the way up. Honestly, I can’t look at this card without grinning…it’s those gnomes!!!!
Finally, I stuffed the pockets with cute tags and postcards. Imagine how much fun it would be to receive this in the mail! It would turn a frown upside down in a hurry! That little snippet of Maize Honeycomb Satin was just the right size to slip into that red paperclip and top with a button. The card says, “Don’t let the little things bug you.”
I loved this ribbon club so much that I kind of hate to see the month of June fade away. But it’s all good….July brings a brand new ribbon club assortment with it, and since I’ve had a sneaky peek of it, I know it’s going to be fun to play with, too!
Thanks for stopping by! Now go get your craft on!
That fabulous card contains so much sunshine, not a single ray more could be squeezed in!

Well, if that card doesn’t make your day, I don’t know what will. So bright and cheery! 🙂 Hope you are having a great weekend.

Happy and cheerful Kathy, pity it doesn’t mach our weather at the moment. The gnomes are so funny and love all the sentiments. The garden on the front is just packed with sunshinex
