Today’s project is a double Z-fold card made using the Ribbon of Courage Bundle (Ribbon of Courage stamp set and Support Ribbon Framelits dies) for the ICS Blog Hop. The theme for this month’s hop is Colors of Courage. We’ve made projects to inspire those wanting to send cards or projects to friends/family in cancer treatment.
 
 
 
The Ribbon of Courage stamp set is perfect for this month’s theme.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but there are lots of other types of support ribbon colors. See the chart below. I used Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum as the main colors, and the sentiment is all purpose, so you can decide if it’s for Breast Cancer or something else.
