Ride On All Occasion Hidden Tag Card for RRR Summer Challenge
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Oh, I am having such a good time playing with the June Ribbon Club Assortment that I pulled them back out to use again on my card for the RRR Summer Challenge. This time, I played with the beautiful Ocean Blue Ribbons in the assortment. But once again, I did not make a beach themed project. What in the world? Instead I made this lovely, summery Ride On All Occasion Hidden Tag Card.
This card brings back so many happy memories of summer days spent riding my bike with my best friend Robin. Both of us had what we called “junkyard bikes” : no brakes, no fancy gears, big fat tires, and old fashioned bicycle seats. But we loved our trusty steeds nonetheless and had many a summer adventure with them and one another.
Ride On Hidden Tag Card: The Details
Ribbon makes for a lovely border on this soft, summery card, especially when topped with a trio of vintage buttons. First I put down a layer of Copen Blue Delicate Stitched Satin using 1/2″ Scor-Tape. Then I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape to layer Copen Blue Diamonds and Dots Satin on top. These ribbons are a perfect color match for the designer papers from Authentique’s Felicity Collection Kit. Blue and yellow is a classic color combination for sure!
Ride On Hidden Tag Pocket
This bow cluster tops my hidden tag. Isn’t that fun? Once again, I glued down my focal image on just the top and bottom edge. Then I created a tag to fit the pocket and tucked it inside.
What’s In Your Pocket?
I think these cheery blues and yellows inspired me, as I could not stop adding details to this card.
I added a ribbon tied accordion folio to the top half of the card.
I love these papers combined with these ribbons!
The lower pocket contains a large ribbon topped tag. Did you notice that the focal image on both tags is the same? One is large and one is small, but apart from that, they are identical. I love to hang these pretty tags on cupboard doors, or display them on little easels like miniature works of art. Of course, they also make great bookmarks! I also tucked a pretty yellow tea bag (Lemon Ginger) into this pocket. So the card is now a gift.
