This 4″ x 6″ card was very easy to make.

Supplies:

1 Red Card Stock Paper 8 1/2″ by 11″ (Makes two) or 12″ x 12″ (Makes three)
1 Patterned Paper 8 1/2″ by 11″ (something that goes well with red)
1 foot of red ribbon
1 brad (something that matches the ribbon well, my ribbon had gold trim so I used a gold brad)

Tools:

Paper cutter (If you don’t have one, just use a ruler and scissors)
Scissors
Adhesive (I use plain glue sticks for almost everything)
Hole puncher
Corner Punch (I highly recommend the Fiskars 4-1 Corner Embosser)
Boning Knif

Tips:

If you have a Cricut Expression machine, cut out a 4″ x 12″ card (when folded lengthwise, the card would be 4″ x 6″).  Here is an example of a Cricut Cut using George and Basic Shapes and a Walk in My Garden cartridges:
