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
