Because of the Brave Patriotic Card for The Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  This Because of the Brave Patriotic Card is my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon May 2024 Blog Hop.  Welcome to the hop!  You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog.

Our theme this month is Patriotic Ribbon.  I’m always more than happy to pull out my red, white and blue papers, trims and flowers.  It seems like anything I make in this color palette turns out well.  Let’s take a closer look at this card, shall we?

Red, White and Blue Ribbons, Trims and Flowers

I dressed this 5″ x 7″ top fold card up with lots of pretty ribbons, trims and flowers from the RRR shop.  Light Navy Checkerboard Satin Ribbon (links are below this post) adds elegance and shimmer to my mulberry flower cluster.  Airmail Baker’s twine is the perfect addition, adding texture and reinforcing the color palette.

TIP: Use mulberry flowers in different shapes, sizes and colors to create a lovely floral arrangement on your card.  And don’t forget the mulberry leaves!  You can find links to all these beautiful posies in the supply list below this post.

A Peek Inside

Carry the patriotic theme inside the card with more stars and stripes.  Break up the bold patterns with just a touch of the petite floral cluster patterned paper.

Change things up by adding a pocket on the TOP of the card.  Then mat a panel of off white cardstock on blue, trim out with paper scraps, add a sticker and tuck inside the pocket.  This creates plenty of room to add a personal note, a photo, and even a gift card.

On With the Hop!

Land That I Love

Photoplay Paper-Land That I Love-Really reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

I don’t know about you, but I am deeply grateful for all the American men and women who have served our country in the military.  This card celebrates that with the bold and beautiful colors of our country’s flag.

Photoplay Paper’s Land That I Love collection set the stage. Then beautiful mulberry flowers from RRR stepped into the spotlight.  Deep Red Cherry Blossoms, Blue Cottage Roses and White Lotus Blossoms blend beautifully with  Red Poppy Print Ribbon. 

Top off that beautiful bow cluster with a gold metallic string bow, vintage safety pin and enamel patriotic charm for a perfect finish.

The celebration continues inside the card!  Of course, I added a pocket!
