Hello everyone and welcome to the August Really Reasonable Ribbons Ramblings blog hop!
If you are here from the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened on to my blog, you will want to head back there so you don't miss a thing.
The August Ribbon Club set is made up of some beautiful purples and grays that look awesome together.
Now, I know when you think of using ribbon, masculine cards aren't the first thing that comes to mind. I needed a masculine card though, and thought I could kill two birds with one stone. These colors worked awesome for it if I do say so myself! :)
Here's my card.
I simply wove assorted ribbons and attached it to a piece of cardstock to make the focal point.
I embossed the gray background paper with an embossing folder, then hit the high spots with a watermark ink. The sentiment is an old Stampin'UP! stamp.
I hope you will try weaving ribbons if you haven't already. It is quite fun!
The monthly Ribbon Club kits work great for this technique because Bonnie has already picked ribbons that look awesome together. Not a member yet? CLICK HERE to find out all of the details and/or sign up.
Please make sure to leave a comment on my blog and on each of the other girls blogs, because as always, there will be a prize and lots of inspiration. I have seen a couple of sneak peeks and the girls have really outdone themselves!
Your next stop on the hop is sweet Linda's blog.
