Beauty of the Earth Fall Card with paper suede ribbon

I love these fall colors.

This is a simple card but I think could be a hello, maybe a sympathy card, a thinking of you.  What I like a lot is the "paper ribbon" under the greeting.  Tips below on this "ribbon"!


Base 8 ½ x 5 ½ Early Espresso

Wood layer 5 3/8 x 4 1/8

Merlot 5 x 3 ¾

Designer paper 4 7/8 x 3 7/8


Layer the card front. Put these layers on the base with dimensionals

Stamp the greeting and die cut with a label (e.g., tasteful labels, Christmas season labels) or trim with scissors


To make the “suede” ribbon, work ¼ strips of merlot with a bone folder (as if you were making curled ribbon), keep working it back and forth. After 2-3 min you’ll be able to separate the paper into 2 thin layers.  Use these paper ribbons below your greeting.


Add gems – I used the gold shimmer dots.


Add a white card inside 4 x 5 ¼ and add a ½” strip of the designer paper. 


The designer paper will easily make 6 of these cards from 1 sheet – stunning – and quick and easy!


Thanks to Brian King for this layout with the borders.
