Simple Stories Cozy Days Greetings with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Autumn is almost here, and I’m welcoming it with this Simple Stories Cozy Days Greetings card.  It has everything I love: plump pumpkins, fall flowers, plaid papers and poufy bows!  Now that’s how to have a cozy day!

Do you love layers as much as I do?  I’m always looking for ways to add layers to my card compositions.  Creating a layered ribbon border is one of my favorite tricks.  The RRR August Ribbon Club Assortment had the perfect ribbons for this festive fall card. Here are some quick and easy ribbon tips.

  • Frame your focal point with ribbon borders.  On this card, I added a ribbon border above and below the focal point of my card.  There’s a lot going on here, but that ribbon border directs traffic beautifully!
  • Layer ribbons for double the fun.  First, put down a border of Russet Orange Taffeta with 1/2″ Scor-Tape.  Then, add the perfect amount of sparkle with Gold Edged Cappuccino Satin Ribbon.  It’s such a simple technique, but it makes a huge visual impact.
  • Don’t forget the bows!  Silky soft Gold Edged Cappuccino Satin ties such pretty bows.
  • Add rustic charm with Natural Burlap String.  Use it in strands to top your tag, then tie bows to tuck beneath elements.  It’s one of my favorite tricks!

A Peek Inside

Add a pocket and gift card wallet inside the card to turn it into a gift.

It’s also very nice to add an Autumn tea bag and blank sentiment panel inside the gift card wallet. Now your card is a gift!

Fall crafting is my favorite.  I love the colors, the images and the patterns.  Look for more fall goodies coming your way!

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!
