Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop - Sweet Friend Card

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

This month there is a wonderful assortment of Autumn ribbons including green, deep red, orange, brown and some great printed ribbon in the September Ribbon Club.   This ribbon assortment is prefect for all of your Autumn crafting 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.

Here is the card that I designed using the Really Reasonable Ribbon September Ribbon Club.  I used the rich brown and deep red ribbons along the bottom of the card to create a ribbon border and used the crochet lace trim on top.

For the sentiment I used a stamp from CR-03885 Grand Sentiments Clear Stamp Set from JustRitePapercraft.  Then I used S5-127 Labels Twenty-Eight and S5-191 Decorative Labels Twenty-Eight die templates to create the die cuts and layers for the card front.  For stamping the sentiment and inking the outer edges of the die cut I used Rich Cocoa and Rhubarb Stalk Memento Inks from Image Crafts/Tsuinkeo.  I also added a couple pieces of bling and WOC Flowers 25mm Cottage Rose 20 pcs Mixed Red from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  

To create the distressed foil background I used Spellbinders Premium Craft Foil (copper) and EL-009 Flora M-bossabilites folder and then lightly sanded the embossed areas.  For some added dimension I added 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® in between the die cut layers.

Enjoy the RRR Blog Hop--I know you will find all kinds of inspiration!
