Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Have you had a chance to play with the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon yet? I pulled them out to make this shabby chic Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card the other day. Ooh la la! I love these ribbons!
See what I mean? These pretty ribbons are the perfect playmate for my 6″ x 6″ easel card. Create a vintage style border by adding a row of Sunflowers on Kiwi Grosgrain Ribbon over a row of Crochet Lace. I used a snippet of this same lace as a base for my vintage buttons.
Paint a metal butterfly charm and adhere it over the butterfly in the paper collection to add even more dimension.
Metal leaves are painted with Distress Paint, then tied through the long ends of the thread I used to stitch around the card perimeter.
Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card: Creating the Bow Cluster
Here’s how I created the bow cluster on this pretty card
- Tie a double loop bow with Dandelion Diamond Satin Ribbon. (I used my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool).
- Next, tie a double loop bow with sweet Autumn Flowers Grosgrain Ribbon. Use hot glue to adhere on top of the Dandelion bow.
- Top with 3 Little Birdie Butter Cup Grape Tan blossoms.’
- Add a stem from Rosemund Grape and Tan Little Birdie Flowers to the right of the bow cluster.
- Add prills, if desired.
Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card: A Peek Inside
There’s room inside to add your own personal greeting. And of course, I had to create a couple of little pockets to fill with treats.
Here’s an itty bitty card where you can tuck in a teeny tiny note or gift.
And here’s a sweet little lavender magnet and sachet duo. Aren’t they fun?
I love the versatility of this month’s ribbon club. It’s great for end of summer and also great for fall.
I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and techniques that you can use in your own crafty adventures. If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hi Kathy, words fail me again with what you have done to this beautiful card. The Stamperia papers are simply beautiful, and your extra of painted butterfly, lavender, and of course the obligatory treats take the whole card to outstanding. Xx
I love this card Kathy!….the wheelbarrow is so adorable….and off course the way you have put it all together….fantastic! Hugs OXO
What a wonderful card, Kathy! Hope you never get tired of hearing me say that because I know that will be true whenever I see what you’ve created. This Stamperia collection is utterly delightful–just love all the gardening pieces…as for this month’s RRR collection, after seeing your card, I ended up shopping a ribbon sale at our local craft store! I especially enjoyed seeing your new tucked-in goodies. The magnet and sachet are so right for this project. Once again, thanks for sharing your creativity.
So beautiful. I have this paper and haven’t used it. Great ideas here.
Oh just luv this shabby looking easel card Kathy! It’s gorgeous too! Luv all your details and all the tiny tuck spots! Still haven’t gotten brave enough to do the flip paint splatters! Lol! One of these days …hugs, Suzy Q
