French Country Birthday Card

French Country RRR 04French Country Birthday Card & Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello Ribbon Loving Friends! I have an elegant card featuring Really Reasonable Ribbon to share with you today.  This French Country birthday card has lots of layers, lots of gold embossing and oodles of scrumptious Really Reasonable ribbon.

French Country RRR 01I have always loved this image from Graphic 45’s French Country paper collection.  When I received the gorgeous August Ribbon Club assortment, I knew this elegant Sherry Checkerboard Satin Ribbon would be the perfect complement to its Old World Charm. I used my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to help me tie the perfect triple loop bow. I frayed and inked a strip of the fabulously shabby chic Cotton Blend Vintage Travel Ribbon . Because this ribbon is 2 1/2″ wide, it makes a perfect belly band on a card.  I saved some of the small threads and topped my satin bow with them and then added a button.

French Country RRR 02You can really see the dimension and embossing from this angle. I combined three of the chipboard tags with a bit of my favorite Natural Jute String to balance out the bow on the left hand side of the card.

French Country RRR 05Fraying the ends is easy…just use a craft pick to separate the strands.

French Country RRR 08More layers, and stamped greetings from Fiskars “Make a Wish” stamp set complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by! I wish you a day filled with beauty and creativity!

    The wine color ribbon really picks up the red in the pears – it’s such a lovely card. I love the way you carefully match colors in unexpected ways.
