Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge: Masculine Pocket Card with Graphic 45 Good Old Sport
Hello, Friends! How can it already be June? But here we are, the first Friday in June and that means it’s time for a fabby new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Bonnie has dared us to create a masculine card with ribbon or trim. So I dug into my Graphic 45 Good Old Sport and Typography papers to put together this masculine pocket card.
These clean simple lines and bold colors are perfect for this challenge. I created a belly band on my striped background paper by layering antique gold netting with some of the border stickers from the collection.
Next, I fussy cut images from the 12 x 12 Good Old Sport papers and used foam dimensionals to place them on top of a journal card from the Typography collection.
This chipboard piece fit right in between my golfer and rugby player, which is a great way to lead the eye from one image to the next. I topped the tag with a bit of Red Canvas Color Band Ribbon and some Natural Burlap String for a pop of color and added texture. I also used the burlap string to attach my sentiment charm to that sparkly red clothespin.
The party really gets started once you open this masculine pocket card because it has not ONE but TWO great pockets on the inside! (Go big or go home, right?) The pocket on the left contains a tag that I made with the 8×8 papers, a sticker and some little banner pieces. The pocket on the right contains postcards from the 12×12 collection. I love the little baseball/ribbon embellie that I hung from a red paper clip. ( I scrap lifted this idea from my BOLB Ginny Nemchak. She’s a clever girl, that one!)
I left this masculine pocket card sort of sentiment neutral. It could be used for Father’s Day, graduation, birthdays, a congrats card or even a card to cheer on a fella who is going through a rough patch. There’s plenty of room to write a personal sentiment or mount photos on the postcards. The tag can be used as a bookmark or decoration in a work cubicle or desk space. And, there’s plenty of room to tuck a gift card or small treat into either pocket of this masculine pocket card.
Now it’s your turn! Start out by visiting the Really Reasonable Ribbon BLOG so you can get all inspired by the other designer projects there. Then work up your own masculine project using ribbon or trim and link it up. You’ll find all the details on the RRR Blog. I’ll be popping by to take a peek at your fabby projects soon. I can’t wait to see what you make!
