Really Reasonable Ribbon Button Card

Hello, and welcome!  It's so nice to have you visit me today.  I'm sharing a sweet card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using some older patterned papers from my stash.  They are October Afternoon's 5 & Dime collection.  Well, actually it's just one piece of patterned paper from this collection, but I used both sides of it.  Once I had the patterned paper in place, I added half of a vintage cream doily on the bottom of my card, and then I ran a width of Forsythia Seam Binding across my card to create a border.
Next, I cut a button card and stamped it with a button-themed stamp set.  I attached the button card using two small strips of Scor-Tape (a fabulous long-lasting Adhesive).  I attached four buttons to the button card, and ran some Lemonwood Striped Baker's Twine through the center of the white button, and a bit of Olive Burlap String through the holes in the red button.  On the left of the button card, I attached a sweet bow cluster that includes a few White Double-Head Stamens, Baby Pink Double-Head Stamens, and Red Double-Head Stamens, a piece of the Forsythia Seam Binding, a length of Dusty Olive Seam Binding and some knotted Cherry Baker's Twine, and is topped with a pretty White Flatback Pearl.
Did you know that almost every single day, you can find a lovely new project on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to inspire you?  It's true...LOTS of great inspiration and all kinds of fabulous ideas for using all of the wonderful products found at Really Reasonable Ribbon, take part in our monthly Blog Hops, and it's also the best way to learn about special sales and promotions taking place on the RRR Shop.  We hope you will visit often.  Thanks again for stopping by to visit me today.
