Really Reasonable Ribbon April 2023 Blog Hop


Hello Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon April 2023 Blog Hop! You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog.  Mother’s Day is our theme for April, so I’ve dished up a deliciously feminine shaker card that’s loaded with flowers, butterflies, sequins and of course, Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Mom is the Best Ever!

Coral Rose Mini Check Ribbon is the perfect complement for this 5×7 shaker card.  I’ve placed poufy bows tied with the 3/8″ width in opposite corners of the shaker element to help frame it.


Paper pretties from Reneabouquets also adorn this flirty, feminine card.

I love the way the Mini Check Coral Rose Ribbon picks up on the pink in our Flower Girl’s scarf and the pink gingham paper.

A Peek Inside

I’ve added a kinetic waterfall element inside the card.  Write a partial greeting on each panel.  As the tab is pulled, you can read the entire message.  So fun!

Of course, I added a pocket to the card.  Create a little gift envelope by scoring and folding a 6×8 paper panel.  Then tuck a tea bag, honey stick and wildflower packet inside.  It’s nice to give Mom something to enjoy now, and something to enjoy later, too!

On With the Hop!

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Cheryl has in store for you.  Be sure to finish up over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog.  You can answer Bonnie’s Question of the Month to be entered into the drawing for a $10 gift card at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I’ve added a linked supply list below this post.

Enjoy the hop!
