Hello, Ribbon Lovers!
Oh what fun it is to get a head start on Christmas! Really Reasonable Ribbon is giving you a gentle nudge with this month’s challenge: Get a Head Start on Christmas. The design team has worked up some super fun projects using Christmas ribbons and trim. And you get to play along! Just visit the RRR BLOG and link up your own holiday project using ribbon or trim and you, too can get a head start on Christmas!
After making that huge December Daily mini album, I decided to make a card for this challenge. I used more of the Crazy for Christmas Ribbon Club Assortment and retro papers from October Afternoon to make this frosty snow man card.
Don’t you just love him? After stitching the background paper to my base, I used the darling Christmas mittens ribbon to form a border on the top and bottom of the card. My polka dot panel was topped with snowy white Mary Crocheted Lace to add nice texture and to mimic freshly fallen snow. But the star of this show is the amazing double loop bow that I tied with Red Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon. This is probably one of the easiest ribbons to use when tying a multi layered bow. And it comes in a rainbow of colors!
This 5″ x 7″ top fold card has loads of layers, and so does my bow. Adding a touch of gold metallic string adds such a nice pop of glimmer and shine, especially when paired with some mini jingle bells or a glittery white clothespin.
The inside of the card opens to reveal a pocket stuffed with ribbon topped tags. I used Christmas Fun Flowers Ribbon as a border on the top half of the card.
The pocket on the bottom has been decorated with a sparkly Christmas tree and some festive Red Zig Zag on White Satin Ribbon. I love this ribbon because it makes me think of old fashioned ribbon candy! YUM!
Now it’s your turn! Get a head start on Christmas and make a holiday project with ribbon or trim, link it up, and I’ll be popping by to take a look at your work of art! Can’t wait to see what you make!
If you’d like to purchase this card, you can find it in my ETSY shop.
