Whats up, Pals!  Mid-Winter is the proper time to take pleasure in some Nation Recent Eggs & Sunshine, don’ t you agree?  As we speak I’ve a candy farmhouse type easel card made with Carta Bella’s Do-it-yourself paper assortment and adorned with ribbons and trims from Actually Affordable Ribbon.

How do you are feeling about yellow?  It’s a kind of colours that folks are inclined to both actually get pleasure from or totally dislike.  I fall on the actually get pleasure from facet of that equation.  So I’m very keen on this saffron- hued 5 1/2″ sq. easel card!

Ribbon to the Rescue!

However whilst a lot as I get pleasure from shades of yellow, I discover they must be toned down with some stable impartial shades.  And that’s the place ribbon involves the rescue!  Right here’s how I used ribbon to tone down the sunshine brightness on this card:

  • First, I created a stomach band by layering Chipmunk Delicate Stitched Satin with 3/8″ Brown Plaid Ribbon.  The brown hues assist to tone down the colourful yellow patterns within the paper assortment.
  • Use Scor-Tape between the ribbon layers, and wrap the ends across the again facet of the cardboard panel for a neat, clear end.
  • Subsequent, tie a poufy plaid bow with that brown plaid ribbon and tuck it right into a cluster of roses and gardenias.
  • Now tie a crazy burlap bow and tuck it into the ribbon cluster so as to add additional texture.
  • Then create a cute banner with stickers from the paper assortment.  Use your Bow-it-All Software to tie itty bitty 1/2″ burlap ribbons and add to the corners.
  • Lastly, Cocoa Ric-Rac provides an fascinating nation type border to the bottom of the cardboard.  I don’t know why I don’t use ric-rac extra typically!
A Peek Inside



The nation contemporary vibes proceed inside the cardboard.  Don’t you simply love these chickens?  In fact, it’s important to add gingham to a farmhouse type card, and bees come in useful, too.  So I simply added the entire above. Do you spy the wee pocket?

Right here’s a more in-depth look.  Trim, rating and fold a 3×4 card to make a facet opening pocket that matches the slender panel.  Then die lower the sentiment from one other 3×4 card.  Thread with ribbon, tie on a candy sunflower allure with burlap string, and now you’ve bought a candy shock tucking inside this Nation Recent Eggs and Sunshine card.

I discover I have a tendency to show to my bolder, brighter paper collections when the winter days are darkish and gloomy.  We’ve had a great deal of rain and gray skies in North Carolina this month.  However I don’t thoughts; I simply make my very own sunshine on paper!  And, the solar is rising somewhat earlier and setting somewhat later every day  now, so spring can’t be too far off, can it?

I hope I shared some ideas and tips you need to use in  your  subsequent artful journey.  You’ll discover a linked provide listing under this submit.
