Cupcake Thank You Cards with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to all!  So today I have 3 Mini Cupcake Thank you cards to share with you all. For my cards today I used 5 different ribbons, a lace and then some adhesives all from RRR store. 

I love when I come across design paper scraps that I haven't seen in forever. The design papers I used on all three of these cards is an OLDIE but GOODY! I found 2 pieces, one large piece and then the blue was a smaller piece that I was able to get a few cards made with . I love the ribbons I chose, they go perfectly with the 3 different cards.

1st Card- I chose to use Really Reasonable Ribbons Brown Diamond Satin.  There are so many different colors to choose from. Then I used the Pink canvas colored band with stitched edge ribbon, I made two bows using each ribbon, and then hot glued them to my card. My card was put together using Scotch Tape, and I just added one piece of design paper glued the Gabrielle Lace to the top and bottom, then added a doily, cupcake, and thank you wording.  It was super easy to make. Can you see the sweet cupcake on the design paper, love it!

2nd Card- I chose to use the Brown Tobacco Seam Binding, ruched up and hot glued on my card.  Then I used the beautiful Nile Blue Crosshatched Satin Ribbon to create my next bow. I used the same Gabrielle lace, but on a different design paper. I also used the cupcake, doily , and same thank you, just colored with two pink Copics . I used the foam tabs to add my cupcake on this one.  Another super fun and easy card to make, love having cute Thank You cards ready to give. 

3rd Card- On this super simple card I used just the design paper, cupcake die, Gabrielle Lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon and then the beautiful blue Mineral Ice shade of Delicate Stitched ribbon, one of my many favorites.

Making Simple Cards Look Simply Lovely

Welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today, everyone!  It's always nice to have you visit us, and I hope you like what you see today as I share these cards with you.  As our name might suggest, this wonderful shop is filled with a very LARGE variety of ribbons, laces, and trims of all sorts....but that's not where it ends.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries SO much more, including Mulberry FlowersEmbellishments, and....the list goes on and on!  RRR has everything you need to create something extra special.
So, for today's post, I'm sharing two sweet cards, and each one showcases just a few of my favorite products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It's SO easy to take a very simple card and make it "Simply Lovely" by adding just a few fabulous RRR products.  This first card was created with an ivory cardstock base and a piece of Carta Bella patterned paper.  I used a second piece of the patterned paper to die-cut a border, and just above it, I added a piece of the beautiful Juliet Natural Crochet Lace.  I added a journalling card and stamped my sentiment on that.  There's a flower sticker at the bottom right of my sentiment card; and at the top left, a beautiful floral treatment that includes a piece of bundled Ivory Burlap String, a 30mm Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Leaf, one Coral Open End Rose, and two Ivory Open End Roses.
I also added some Double Head Stamens including a few green, a few Baby Blue Double Head Stamens, and a few Red Double Head Stamens.  These sweet little accents, Wild Orchid Crafts Double Head Stamens are SO amazing; and at just $1.99 for a bundle of 160 pieces, they're a great bargain item that will add quite a lot of impact to your floral accents (as you can see).
My second card is another fairly simple card.  I used several patterned papers that I attached together with strips of Scor-Tape.  I also added some stickers and did some machine stitching in black.  While the card was was missing something.  Ribbons!  I made a bow using a piece of Pink Center Stitch Burlap Ribbon and a piece of Brown Center Stitch Burlap Ribbon.  I also added some Baby Pink Double Head Stamens and Black Double Head Stamens, and topped the bow with a Pink Trellis Rose.
What I especially love about the Burlap Center Stitch Ribbons are their AMAZING texture.  They, like ALL of the trims at Really Reasonable Ribbon, add so much warmth and depth to your cards and projects.  Everything you need to make your "Simple Cards" look "Simply Lovely" can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon!  Thanks again for stopping by today.

Have a great week,

We Are Family Greeting Card

Hello there crafty friends and happy Wednesday to you all! It's Ginny here to share a very sweet and shabby inspired greeting card created with gorgeous RRR ribbon.
I love pink and gray together! I also love that I had the perfect shade of pink ribbon to go with the flowers : )
This is a mix of purchased and handmade flowers.  I love to mix and match!
This seam binding is dreamy. It makes the perfect bow without being too poofy. I've topped it off with a vintage button.
Doilies die cut from crisp white paper helps to break up the busy patterns. The inside of the card is finished with coordinating papers.
Lots of die cut foliage is layered up with twine to fill in this arrangement. A scattering of sequins is the perfect finishing touch.

Really Reasonable Ribbon~ Baby Pink Seam Binding, Ivory Burlap String.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Keeping it Natural with Burlap Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!   Do you like to add texture to your handmade cards?  I'm always on the lookout for new ways to incorporate texture and layers in my work.  It's one of the reasons I love to add ribbon to my cards!  It doesn't just look adds another layer of texture. 

This 5" x 7" top fold card is loaded with layers and lovely textures. I added a simple bow tied with Pink Burlap Center Stitched Ribbon to "tie" all my elements together. 

 Distressed paper edges, rolled corners, vintage buttons, soft shimmering pearls, coiled wire, glittered foliage and flowers enhance the design of this botanical card.  And the texture from the ribbon is the icing on the cake!    As a bonus, this ribbon ties like a dream! 

What's your favorite way to add texture to your crafty creations?  I'd love to hear about it in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!
