God Bless America Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop
Hello Ribbon Lovers! It’s May 13th, and that means it’s time for another fabulous Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog. If you get off track, go back to the RRR BLOG where you’ll find a complete list for the hop. We are heading right into the summer holidays, so it’s time to break out the red, white and blue ribbons from the May Patriotic Ribbon Club assortment and get your craft on. I’ve made this God Bless America card using every single ribbon in the assortment.
I don’t know what it is about combining red, white and blue, but it sure works! Here’s a look at the ribbons in this month’s club.
United We Stand
This 5″ x 7″ top fold card is made with Authentique’s brand new “United” paper collection. I layered some of these fabulous ribbons to create a belly band for my card. Ribbon is a great way to create a quick border, and as you can see, I did that on the base of this card front. I also created a fun paper clip embellishment with a snippet of ribbon and a metal button.
Now, let’s talk about the bow! I tied two colors of ribbon at the same time on my Bow-it-All tool. Then I topped the bow with a flashy red flower and a star shaped stick pin.
True Blue Through and Through
The inside of the card has another belly band and a double pocket that contains a stack of little journal cards. These can hold photos, or be used as bookmarks, or for journaling.
Raise your hand if you had to memorize the Pledge of Allegiance when you were in school. Do they still do that? We started with the Pledge every single morning, and I love that Authentique included it in this collection. I also tucked a little chocolate treat inside the belly band.
Now hop on over and see what Cherry has cooked up with this fabulous ribbon assortment. And be sure to visit the RRR Blog and let Bonnie know that you completed the hop so you can be entered to win your very own Patriotic Ribbon Club Assortment.
Thanks for hopping by!
I’m not participating in the blog hop, but I always love to see what you’ve made. This is a brilliant patriotic design, and I am so inspired by the way you used the ribbons! I am about 48 hours away from (hopefully) selling some of this stuff, but I can tell you, I am sick of looking at craft supplies! Hoping to make a little bit of money at our yard sale so I can buy NEW goodies! Tee Hee! Hugs!
Wonderful vibrant colours Kathy. The card is wonderful and certainly a tribute to America, people and flag Hugsxx
Such a bright and beautiful card! Love all the layering and the nice variety of paper prints as well as all those different ribbons! SO pretty!
Thank you so much Sandra! This paper collection from Authentique works so well with the RRR Patriotic Ribbon Club Assortment. I’m glad you enjoyed the card! Good luck in the hop!

This is fabulous, Kathy. I am so in love with the ribbons in this patriotic themed collection.
Fantabulous card, Kathy! Love all of the layering…one of my favorite aspects of creating. Beautiful details! We are having a red/white/blue challenge on the Double D Blog!
Love the layering and the bow!
I love your pocket card. The bow is gorgeous. I love that flower on it. Great card! Edwina Brown
I am absolutely crazy about this card! The Love design of course pays homage to the 1960’s and I’ve always loved that design. You mat everything so beautifully, even the ribbon. Oh how I wish I could spend a day with you to watch how you do everything. You are my favorite card designer to the nth degree. It is such a pleasure to view your projects. Have a wonderful weekend!
I really enjoyed seeing that star stick pin…the perfect embellishment for this delightful card. I was surprised at all the inside work…very nice!
Just gorgeous ,beautifully done with the RRR . Love it , love it
Happy Mother’s Day
I love how all your cards are also a gift with a special surprise inside! This is a wonderful use of the r/w/b theme!

Great use of all that lovely ribbon! Beautiful.
What a beautiful card. I love all the layering, and the use of ribbon. Lots of detail, Thanks for sharing.
Fabby patriotic card Kathy. That design paper goes great with this assortment. Love the pretty ribbon and flower cluster.
Great design. I like how you were able to use all of the ribbon. Yes, we said the pledge everyday at school and so did my kids.
Wow – such vibrant colors! And yes – the pledge was a daily occurrence, first thing in the morning!
