Squeeze the Day Card Folio for the Really Reasonable Ribbon June 2024 Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  This Squeeze the Day Card Folio is my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon June 2024 Blog Hop.  Welcome to the hop!  You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog.  You can find a list of all the blogs in the hop at the bottom of this post.

Our theme this month is “Bright Summer Colors”.  I reached into my stash and found these bright yellow and aqua mulberry flowers (link below the post) Aqua Baker’s Twine, and Houndstooth Ribbon to play with.  They go perfectly with the colors in this Simple Stories Vintage Twist Paper Collection and paper pretties from Reneabouquets.

Posies and Bows

This bright, beautiful Aqua Chrysanthemum and lemon yellow Cherry Blossoms are the perfect color match for my Squeeze the Day card.  (I like to use my fingers to open the inside petals of the Cherry Blossom blooms.  This makes them the perfect “mid-sized” flower. )

A loopy bow tied with 3/8″ black houndstooth ribbon and a loopy Aqua Baker’s Twine bow tuck neatly under the flowers.  Try tucking some itty bitty Sweetheart blossoms into the mix.

A Peek Inside

Carry the lemon yellow/aqua/black theme inside the card with more pretty papers.

TIP: Adhere just the bottom edge of some ephemera to create pretty little tuck spots behind the flap element.  Then add a little tea bag and note card to the tuck spots.  The bottom pocket is the perfect place to tuck in a bonus tea wallet.

This time I went for an aqua tea bag!  There’s a honey crystal packet tucked into the tea wallet, too.

    Can you make a video tutorial on how to make double and triple looped bows? I would greatly appreciate if you can do this for us. I can’t be the only person wanting to learn how to make bows that don’t look like a second grader tied them! LOL LOL LOL
