Graphic 45 Blooming Beauty Box Card

Graphic 45 Blooming Beauty Box Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon January Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  This Graphic 45 Blooming Beauty Box Card is my contribution to the  RRR January Blog Hop!  Your should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.  If so, you are right on track.  But if you got lost somewhere along the way, you can find the entire hop list over on the RRR blog.

This month’s ribbon club features pretty pink ribbons from The Sweetheart Assortment.  These are great for Valentine’s Day projects, but I wanted to show how well they work with all occasion cards, too.

Blooming Beauty Box Card: A Posh Pocket for Posh Pink Ribbon

Pearl Pink Bold Satin Ribbon with a Grosgrain Edge is the perfect adornment for this 5″ x 7″ top fold card.  it picks up on the lighter shades of pink in the Graphic 45 Bloom Collection and complements the rich, bold colors of the mulberry flowers.  Plus, it ties gorgeous bows!

Top the bow cluster with some Iridescent White Metallic String, small flowers and a sweet little love charm to really make it special! Die cut an Eileen Hull Gift Card Pocket from the designer paper and add it to the cover design.  It’s always fun to have a posh little pocket and tag combination on a card front.

Blooming Beauty Box Card: A Peek Inside

The inside of this card has a box pocket (find a tutorial HERE) and an ephemera card pocket for writing a greeting.

Use an Envelope Punch Board to create a little gift pocket, then tie it with more of the pretty ribbon.  Would you like to see what is inside?

Here’s a mini honey dipper, a vintage demitasse spoon, small ephemera card, honey packet and tea bag. Now the card is a perfect Valentine, birthday card, or get well card for any tea lover.

    When I saw this G45 collection,”Bloom,” I just had to get my skilled hands on it!! The colors really please my eyes and inspire me to create! It appears that it has done the same for you. This pocket card is gorgeous!! So many elements all joined together into one cohesive, and very attractive, project…really nice design work on this one. The lighter ribbon choice is a nice compliment to all the busy designer prints. Well done! Mother’s Day, a very special friend, a cheerful encouragement for someone who needs a smile…this project will remain in mind. Beautifully designed!

    Kathy, what a scrumptious card! Oh my, the colors and those ribbons are simply elegant. It looks so Victorian and how perfect for a Valentine card. I love your cards that every time I look at them I see something new. Those cute little buttons add just the perfect touch on the front and oh what wonderful surprises on the inside! This was one of their most beautiful collections. I have had some of these papers for quite a while. Thank you for sharing this beauty and your wonderful tips! Hugs!

    Kathy, the combination of the G45 “Blooms” with the RRR is truly a winner. This box card design is always full of your goodies so I enjoy seeing what will be inside as I scroll through your blog entry. This packet tucked inside the box is delightful. Thanks for sharing it on the RRR blog hop. The ribbons are such a tribute to Valentines Day. Hugs.
