Hello, Friends! It’s time for the June Ribbon Club Assortment Blog Hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I think you’re going to love the Sunshine and Happiness easel card I have to share with you. You should have made your way here from Karen’s lovely blog. If so, you are right on track. The blog hop starts on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog, so if you are lost, you can start there and find the links to all the blogs on this hop.
I love the sunshiny colors of the Citrus Assortment in the June Ribbon Club. Working with them is like taking a tropical vacation.
I thought these ribbons were a great match for Simple Stories “Sunshine and Happiness” collection. Since I have a sweet l’il grand girl who is turning 7 this month, I combined paper and ribbons to create this Sunshine and Happiness easel card.
This is the perfect card for our sweet Sophie, because she does spread sunshine and happiness everywhere she goes.
These tropical punch colors just scream summertime fun, and they play so nicely with the Citrus ribbons. I created a belly band by layering Citrus Paint Splatter Grosgrain, Tangerine Crosshatch Satin, and Citrus Chevron Striped Grosgrain along the base of the card front.
The “footrest” for the easel portion of the card is made by layering Maize Honeycomb Print Satin on top of Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon. This sunny combo was topped with cute chipboard pieces from the Sunshine and Happiness chips. And I had to throw some Petaloo Gerber Daisies into the mix as well.
This little balloon bouquet is my favorite element on the card. I tied a double loop bow with orange checkerboard satin ribbon and maize taffeta ribbon. This was topped with a festive double loop bow tied with Sheer Citrus Dots Ribbon and a Petaloo Yellow Gerber Daisy. I added a touch of stickles to the balloons, because 7 year old girls loooove glitter!
Here’s a peeky at the inside of the card. There’s a little gift card pocket for an ice cream gift card and cash for her college fund. Sophie will love these bright colors and summer images, and I can’t wait to give it to her at her birthday party!
That’s all for me! If you’d like to sign up for the ribbon club, you can find all the info HERE.
