Adorable Baby Boy Card With RRR

Really Reasonable Ribbon's sweet ribbons, laces and trims are SO incredibly easy to work with that they make it easy to come up with something sweet every time I make a card.  For this simple little baby boy card, I just used some Crate Paper Little Boy Blue patterned papers and stickers, and a tag, and added to that by including several of Really Reasonable Ribbon's amazing products.  It was fairly plain until I spiced it up with the ribbons.
It started with the patterned papers, and I inked them, machine stitched them, and set up the layout of the card.  It was definitely needing some RIBBONS!  I added a length of Canvas Colored Band With Stitched Edge in Red along with a length of Green Apeple Baker's Twine that I tied into a bow on the tag.
I also ran the Canvas Colored Band With Stitched Edge in Red along the botton of the card along with some ticket stickers from this Crate Paper Little Boy Blue collection, and I included the Green Apple Baker's Twine at the bottom as well.  The top of the card has a length of my new favorite lace, the sweet Debra Natural Crochet Lace.  While Really Reasonable Ribbon carries dozens of gorgeous crocheted laces, I like this particular lace because it is very narrow and thin, so it makes a nice border or bow where you need a softer touch.
This card also has some wool felt animals that I cut from a Papertrey Ink die-cut and stacked on top of one another.  It matches the brown background paper that has VERY faint animals printed on it.  You can see them much better in real life.  I just wanted to explain that so the animals didn't seem so completely random on this card.  LOL
