Really Reasonable Ribbon March Blog Hop

Good morning blogging friends!  Today, is the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop for the month of March.  The RRR Design Team Members and Special Events Design Team Members will be showcasing the Monthly Ribbon Club

This month there is a beautiful assortment of Pink, White and Green ribbons included in the March Ribbon Club. This is such a pretty combination for Spring projects.  Click HERE for more details on how you can sign up for the Monthly Ribbon Club.

If you are following the order of the blog hop you should have just come from Judy's Blog. If not and you just happened to pop in for a visit please click HERE to start the blog hop at the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings! Blog.

For my project I designed a card using three of the ribbons/trims from the March Ribbon Club Assortment - Sweet Pickle.  I used two of the ribbons to create a banner across the top of the card and I used some of the white crochet trim to make a little rosette.

To start I used StazOn Opaque Roasted Coffee ink from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko to stamp the word banners on to the pink ribbon.  The stamps are from JustRite Papercraft CR-04375 Live, Love Laugh Vintage Labels Two stamp set.  These little word banners are the perfect size for stamping on ribbon.

Next I fussy cut the ribbon to make little banners.

The rosette was very quick and easy to make.  I did a straight stitch through the top of the white crochet trim, pulled it to ruffle up the trim and sewed the ends together.

Here is a close up of the banner at the top of the card.  I used a piece of crochet thread and 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere the ribbon.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I die cut a S4-110 Classic Ovals Large, stamped the sentiment with Opaque Roasted Coffee ink and inked the inside edges with Memento Inks Toffee Crunch.  Then I added the rosette, pink roses and leaves.  I added a buckle slider with large pearl to the center of the rosette.  For the leaves I used Herbal Garden paper from DiscountCardstock.comS4-328 Foliage die template and Memento Ink  Pistachio.  

I used BoBunny Prairie Chic Collection and S5-131 A2 Matting Basics A die template to create the mat for the card front and then I used Posh Milk Chocloate for the base of the card.  To finish off the card I added some tiny pearls to the banner and around the flower cluster.

I hope you enjoyed my project and tutorial. 
Don't forget StazOn inks are prefect for stamping on ribbon!
