Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut
Welcome to my stop on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop! :) grab a cuppa and sit back for a moment while I share a little project made with our current lovely set of ribbons in the monthly kit!
I decided to make a set of cards to give as a gift later on. I've used several of the ribbons in the kit. as much as I simply ADORE the turquoise gingham plaid (because I've bought quite a bit of it!!!), I decided to go with the red houndstooth and sheer cherries.
I started with a base of kraft card stock, inked the edges, added red gingham paper by Die Cuts with a View and faux stitching (after distressing edges), some solid red cs, and a doily cut from a paper bag with a die by Prima. whew... that's a lot! ;)
the cherry tags are from the Cameo Shoppe and matted on brown cs. edges were again distressed. sentiment dies are by Tim Holtz. one tag is mounted on foam tape to give a bit of dimension. a little scrap of cardboard was adhered beneath the the tag on foam tape. a Tim Holtz paper clip holds a tiny banner punched from kraft cs.
the red houndstooth ribbon is tied across the bottom of the card into a bow. red burlap string ties a little cherry charm to the bow. flowers include red trellis roses, red aster daisies, white sweetheart blossoms, pink cosmos, and lillies.
I recently saw a challenge calling for the whitewash technique, so even though these are too late to qualify, I thought it would be fun to give it a try. it was fun and fit perfectly with the country feel.
