Snowflake Kisses Valentine Pocket Card with Sweetheart Ribbon Mix and Authentique Wintery
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Is it snowing in your neck of the woods? We don’t get a whole lot of snow here in North Carolina, but I see a lot of my Facebook friends dealing with lots and lots of snowflakes! I never did much care for winter. It’s beautiful…but it is COLD! About the only way I like to experience winter any more is on paper. I’ve been having lots of fun with the new Authentique Wintery collection. It’s a great playmate for the RRR January Ribbon Club Sweetheart Mix. I had both on my work desk today, and came up with this whimsical Snowflake Kisses Valentine Pocket Card.
These are not exactly traditional Valentine’s Day colors, but I fell in love with the sentiment. I say this is a Valentine, but it would also make a great get well card, winter birthday card or thinking of you card.
So, I have a new ribbon crush to tell you about. Have you tried out the taffeta ribbon in the shop? Oooh-la-la! It ties the most beautiful crisp bows! I super love how the white ribbon brightens the composition of this card. The Sweetheart Mix was put into action on the belly band, too. Don’t you just love the Random Hearts and Confetti Dots Grosgrain layered over crocheted lace?
The ribbons in this assortment are sooo gorgeous you are going to want to use every little snippet of them. I cut fishtails on the ends of two tiny scraps of this Bold Diamond Red Satin ribbon and tucked them under my greeting. They don’t just look pretty; they actually draw the eye to the sentiment panel.
What’s In Your Pocket?
The inside of this card is soooo cute I can hardly stand it. What’s in the pocket? A packet of Lipton Cup-a-Soup, that’s what! How fun is that? I just couldn’t help myself, my friends. Having practically LIVED on this stuff when I was in college way back in the Dark Ages, I thought it would be perfect for this wintry card. What do you think?
Sending you lots and lots of wintry snowflake kisses!
Thanks for stopping by!
