Purple Songbird All Occasion Greeting Card with Gift Card Wallet and Button Card
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Are you up for one more project made with the Perfectly Purple Ribbon Club Mix from Really Reasonable Ribbon? I have had such fun with these pretty purple ribbons. Today I have a Purple Songbird All Occasion Greeting Card to share with you. It’s beautifully vintage and loaded with goodies on the inside.
The inspiration for this 5″ x 7″ top fold card came from this gorgeous songbird image. I found the French Post Card Bird Digital Images and they just flew into my shopping cart. This lovely wee songbird is perching in a Country Chic Digital Frame.
- First,tie a 3.5″ double loop bow from Hyacinth Taffeta Ribbon on your Zutter Bow it All Tool.
- Next, tie a 2.5″ double loop bow from Crosshatch on Delphinium Satin Ribbon. Hot glue this on top of the taffeta ribbon, and adjust the tails. Hold in place until the glue sets.
- Finally, thread a mother of pearl button with a thin strip of lavender cardstock and glue it on top.
Decorate the tops of each tag with a snippet of the crosshatch ribbon and a pretty flat back pearl cabochon.
How to Turn a Purple Songbird Card into a Gift
- First, cut an 8×5″ long x 5″ tall strip of lavender cardstock.
- Score on the long side at 3.5″ and again at 7″.
- Fold to form a little wallet.
- Place 1/4″ Scor-Tape around the front, spine and back covers. Then secure Crosshatch Delphinium Satin to form the ribbon closure.
- Add a rhinestone cabochon on the front of the gift wallet.
- Decorate the front and interior.
- Use a circle punch to create a thumb hole.
- Glue just the top and bottom edge of the short flap to form a pocket.
- Cut a tag from the May pages of Place in Time. Glue just the bottom edge to create a tuck spot.
I love anything with vintage style bird images, so this Purple Songbird All Occasion Greeting card is precisely my cup of tea. (Pardon the pun!)
