Really Reasonable Ribbons For All Occasions

Yes, I love my ribbons.  There aren't many cards or projects I create that don't include some lace, ribbon, twine, or some type of spooled goodness.  That's another reason why I absolutely LOVE Really Reasonable Ribbon.  They have the PERFECT ribbons and trims for EVERY project, and all their products compliment one another so nicely.
I created this card using a super old piece of patterned paper from Daisy D.  I added a couple strips of vintage sheet music to that, and then added a paper doily onto which I stamped a sympathy sentiment in black ink.  Then.....the fun part - RIBBONS!
I used several of Really Reasonable Ribbon's FABULOUS trims on this card.  First, I added a length of Ariana Natural Crochet Lace across the top of my card, then I got busy embellishing the bottom portion of the card.  I used a small piece of both Cream Seam Binding and Rose Petal Seam Binding, and then topped those with bows made from Solid Wheat Baker's Twine and Deep Solid Pink Baker's Twine.  I also incorporated some of Really Reasonable Ribbon's SWEET flowers and leaves into this card.  I used their lovely Baby Pink Open Roses, Deep Pink Open Roses and Wild Orchid Crafts 30 mm Green Paper Leaves.  Really Reasonable Ribbon's many flowers and leaves come in several useful colors and sizes to accommodate all your crafting needs.  You will be pleasantly surprised to see ALL that they carry!
I followed pretty much the same recipe and design on this second sympathy card as I did on the first.  The only difference is that this card has a bit more of a green feel to it.  I incorporated Really Reasonable Ribbon's lovely Bay Leaf Seam Binding, Teal Baker's Twine, Deep Ivory Open Roses, and 30mm Green Paper Leaves into this one.

There are so many great ribbons, trims, laces, seam binding colors, flowers and much more available at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Why not treat yourself today?  There's also a super fun challenge taking place on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and we would sure LOVE to have you play along with us.
