Prima Darcelle Hello Friendship Card Folio for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  If you are a fan of the color purple, I think you’re going to enjoy this Prima Darcelle Hello Friendship Card Folio.  This frilly, fancy card is all dressed up with luscious ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon February Club Assortment.  I’ve had such a good time with these pretty ribbons this month, and I had just enough of the Light Orchid Diamond Satin to make just one more poufy bow!

Purples can be  hard to match, so I used lots of different shades in this fancy card.

A bit of gold metallic string tucked into the bow cluster picks up on the gold foil accents in the flower centers,  paper and washi tape border.

A Peek Inside

I love to find ways to use ribbon inside my cards, too. Light Orchid  Swiss Dots Satin serves as a closure for the flap page on the top half of the card.  And look at all the yummy chocolate in the pocket!  

TIP:  To make the flap page, cut the patterned paper wider than the base of the card.  I added 3 1/4″ to the 5″ base so that I could add a sneaky hidden tea back pocket behind the flap.

Along with the chocolates, honey stick and post card in the pocket, I created this sweet bookmark.  (Yes…I am learning how to make my own tassels!  Woo-hoo!) Stitch bits and bobs of patterned paper onto a canvas rectangle, then fringe the canvas for a pretty homespun look.

How you do feel about purple?  I find myself liking this sophisticated, regal color more and more all the time.  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Prima Darcelle Milestone Birthday Card Folio

Prima Darcelle Milestone Birthday Card Folio with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  How about a little Prima Darcelle pretty purple vintage typewriter to start your day off with a smile?  This milestone birthday card folio is a great way to celebrate a milestone birthday.

Purple is one of those colors that people usually have strong feelings about.  You either love it, or you don’t!  Personally, I have grown to appreciate the many hues that purple has to offer.  It lends a richness and a sense of royalty where ever it shows up.

TIP: Lighten up the darker hues of this Prima Darcelle  paper with a 3/8″ Grape Plaid Bow.  This ribbon 3/8″ Grape Plaid from the RRR April Ribbon Club Assortment made the prettiest triple loop bow!

TIP: Add lots of depth to your layers by separating them with foam dimensionals.

TIP:  To create the “sugar” in this spoon embellishment follow these simple steps:

  • First, fill the bowl of the spoon with hot glue.
  • Next, place the spoon in a funnel tray or over a clean sheet of printer paper.
  • Now, sprinkle Distress Glitter over the hot glue.  When the glue dries, you have a spoon full of “sugar.”
Prima Darcelle Milestone Birthday Card Folio: A Peek Inside

Create a box style pocket inside the card.  Now you can fill it with all kinds of birthday treats.  The card is now the gift!

Here’s a beautiful vintage silver plate spoon, and a little chocolate treat.

Milestone birthdays are often accompanied by birthday parties.  So I created a little accordion style photo album to tuck inside the pocket along with the tea bag and honey stick.

Now you can capture all the memories of that special day in style.

Tell me: how do you feel about the color purple?  Love it?  Avoid it at all costs?  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,
