A Little Love With Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello to all my ribbon-loving friends, and welcome by my blog!  I hope you're having a wonderful week.  Here in Las Vegas, it's been SO nice and warm (in the high 60's to low 70's).  It hardly even seems like Winter, and I'm loving it.  Today I'm sharing this super sweet Valentine with you that I made using some lovely seam binding and goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  They have everything you need to create something extra special for your special Valentine.  Isn't this sweet?
This card started with an ivory base and some romantic patterned papers.  I used one as a base, and the other two to die-cut and hand-stitch layered hearts with dusty pink DMC floss.  I also added some tulle netting over the smaller heart to hold in some white sequins.  I attached the hearts together using Scor-Tape which is an amazing long-lasting Adhesive available in several different widths.  I use it quite a bit cuz it ROCKS!
I ran a width of GORGEOUS Bay Leaf Seam Binding across my card and also tied a bow with it.  I also added a bow tied with Cotton Candy Baker's Twine, and used that to attach a small inked hang tag with my stamped sentiment (Love) from a rusty pear-shaped safety pin.  I tucked some White Double Head StamensBaby Pink Double Head Stamens, and Aqua Green Double Head Stamens behind the bow cluster, and bundled some Ivory Burlap String underneath everything.
Be sure to stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog each day to find inspiration, learn about special promotions, and take part in our monthly Blog Hops.  There's always something exciting to be found there, and LOTS of great products for you to enjoy in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop.  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, friends.  I always appreciate your visits and your kind comments, but especially so now while I'm feeling crummy.

Bless you,
Karen
