With Deepest Sympathy

Hi there ribbon lovers.  Today I have a sympathy card to share.  I find sympathy cards to be difficult to make and I like to keep them kind of simple.  I think this one fits the bill.  I topped the card off with a pretty bow I made with ribbon and string from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I was shooting for a CAS look, and for me this is pretty 'clean and simple'.  I did use multiple layers but I kept a clean background with the pretty leaf inclusion paper.  I stamped the sentiments and butterflies right on this artist paper.
The pretty die is the Cherry Blossom die from Cheery Lynn designs and I think it's perfect for this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on other products used on my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.

Humble and Simple

{judy} I adore this little Christmas manger set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps  - Joy to the World. It is sweet and cute at the same time. It has three great sentiments that come with the manger, but I chose a word from the Words of Life 1 Collection

I wanted my card to reflect the humble beginnings of Jesus' birth, and didn't want the embellishments too fussy. The 1.5" Natural Jute Ribbon that Bonnie carries in the RRR Store was absolutely perfect for what I was looking for. It continues the idea of a rough manger, and complements the patterned paper.

There are five beautiful colors of this Jute Ribbon, and I love them all! Check out all the Natural Fiber trims and ribbons HERE.

Thanks for spending some of your day here at Really Reasonable Ribbon!

Gather Blessings Woodland Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It's Kathy here with another fun card for fall. 

I just love the colors and textures of fall, so I added lots and lots of both to this card made with Authentique Harvest papers.  The combination of humble burlap, homespun  Debra crochet lace, and rustic brown burlap string with Copper Glitz Ribbon is a real winner in my book!

The belly band was created with Antique Gold wired edge Burlap Ribbon. This is no longer carried by RRR (insert moment of silence here).  BUT you could easily get the same great texture by substituting either Antique Gold Netting or Brown Netting.

Of course, I tied that bodacious Copper Glitz bow with the aid of my trusty Bow it All Tool!  It's a must have item in my studio!  To learn how to make the most of it in your craft space, you can subscribe to the Really Reasonable Ribbon YouTube Channel.  Bonnie has an amazing array of helpful tutorials there.

That's all for me today, my friends!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there Paper long no chat!  Cherry here...  my day to share here at Really Reasonable Ribbon.   I created this snowman tag using plaid ribbon in the red bold check along with some lipstick red seam binding.  To hang the tag I wound some 3/8th shell print in red through the hole in my tag.  My background is just a glittered ornament....and a few doodads to make Miss Snow Lady oh so cute.

Isn't she adorable?  I love snow ladies.  Well folks.....enjoy!  Cherry

Happy Anniversary Card

Hi friends.  Today I am sharing a sweet anniversary card.  My card stash is always lacking for anniversaries, so I have to get working on this!  My card today is embellished with pretty ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I love my stash of Mulberry Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  When I'm running behind and just don't have the time to make handmade flowers, they are great to have on hand.  There is a HUGE variety of flower styles and the prices are very reasonable.  You might say 'Really Reasonable'!
I ran a strip of Royal Blue Delicate Stitched Satin across the center of the card topped with a piece of Grape Grosgrain with Silver Edges.  The bow was created with Grape and Royal Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V3.0.

For a video tutorial on how to make this pretty bi-color bow, please click HERE.
The dies I used on my card are all from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I love their huge selection of dies and they have the perfect die for any occasion.
