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.
