Paris Inspired Greeting Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Friends! Or should I say, “Bonjour”? Meet me at the Eiffel Tower as I share this Paris inspired Greeting Card.
This 5″ x 7″ top fold card is made with Photoplay’s sweet vintage “Moments in Time” collection kit. No card is complete without ribbon. This green/ivory/pink checked ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect complement for this vintage card. . It’s a fairly new addition to the RRR shop, and I have to say, I love everything about it. The texture is really pliable, making it easy to tie beautiful bows. The colors are beautifully blended and a nice change of pace from standard plaid or gingham ribbon, which I love. And, it comes in a wide array of colors…which may or may not have all fallen into my shopping cart.
Paris Inspired Greeting Card: The Details
TIP: Separate busy patterned papers with cardstock mats. You can double mat each layer of a card. Cut each layer 1/8″ smaller than the one before it and you’ll have perfectly matted cards every time. For this card, I used both Lush Lagoon and Tropical Teal cardstock.
TIP: Break up all those intense blues with a touch of white. Instead of using a doily, die cut a Spellbinder’s Tiara Rondelle from Whip Cream Cardstock. It’s on sale at Spellbinder’s and I really am enjoying it. The die comes with the corner pieces, too.
Paris Inspired Greeting Card: A Peek Inside
The inside of the card is fairly simple. Add a side pocket and tuck in a little note card that’s been decorated with a sticker from the collection.
Flip the note card over and you’ll find a little treat tucked inside a belly band.
