Celebrating childrens Birthdays with RRR!











            Are you up for a fun challenge?  Really Reasonable Ribbon is kickin off July with a fun one.. #51 is Children's Birthday with Ribbon !  We will also be playin along this month with Scor- Pal and sharing tutorials with them...so make sure to check out all the inspiration.  My project today is a pink girly girl ensemble..and with the theme..it was the perfect chance to break out Pretty Party from Crate Paper.  I made a card and matching homemade envelope.  I had so much fun picking out ribbons that really added a sweet feminine touch.   I used both the pink velvet and Estelle crochet lace on the  bottom of my homemade envelope.  For my bows I used the light blue chevron ribbon and seambindings in bay leaf.  I love to mix ribbons together..it adds texture and whimsy. 
                                             Now our tutorials with scor-pal have not quite kicked off yet but I thought I would get a jump start on how easy it was to make this card using an accordian folded piece of paper with the scor-pal buddy and some scor-tape.  I just cut a 2 x 5 piece of paper and scored every 1/2 inch on the piece of paper and folded it .  I cut dovetails on each end for a little detail and that was that.  I than simply covered my card in my chosen papers with my scor-tape and than layered it with the accordian piece.  From there I added my large sentiment sticker with a banner glued from behind on either end.  I added some layered buttons....and from there I added some OH SO SWEET Pink crochet lace to the bottom of the card...and topped it off with some crickled up Bayleaf seam binding and a painted distressed jingle bell for fun!  So easy and fun.  The accordian piece adds a lot of depth to the card and adds a lot of interest to an otherwise simple card.   Hope you enjoyed my take on the challenge...and make sure to go check out the other girl's creations.  Hugs, cherry
