Carta Bella Christmas Market Card

Carta Bella Christmas Market Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon October Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.   I’ve used the October Ribbon Club Assortment to make this fun and festive Carta Bella Christmas Market Card Folio.

 

I just love the fact that the Christmas Ornaments Ribbon matches the Christmas ornaments paper in this collection!  So I had to create a little double decker bow with White Diamond Satin.  Add a little sparkle with silver metallic string and mini jingle bells.   Brush festive die cut holiday greenery with a little Diamond Stickles to resemble snow.

Ribbon on the inside of a card adds a special touch.  Dress up a mini candy cane and honey stick with a snippet of the Christmas Ornament Ribbon.

Tuck a sweet treat and a gift card/tea wallet into the pocket, and now the card becomes a gift!

This ribbon club assortment is a perfect match for these fun papers!

If you haven’t signed up for the Ribbon Club, now is a great time to join.  It’s like getting a Christmas present every single month of the year.  Learn how to sign up HERE.

Now hop on over and see what pretties the sweet and talented Linsey has in store for you this month.  Then finish up the hop on the RRR blog where you will answer Bonnie’s question of the month and be entered into the drawing for a free ribbon club assortment.

Thanks for hopping by!

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It’s time for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.

Easel cards are probably one of my favorite fancy folds to make because they can  double as home decor. This 6″ x 6″ Graphic 45 Christmas Magic Easel Card has some fun features inside, too.

This collection and Red Taffeta Ribbon just go together like Santa and his Elves.  You can see another card created with this collection and this ribbon HERE.  In addition to the Red Taffeta Ribbon,  I’ve used  white crochet lace, Christmas Dots and Red Ovals Satin, and Christmas Green Zig Zag on White Satin Ribbons.

When the holidays are done, you can fold this Graphic 45 Christmas Magic Easel Card up and put it away until next year.  Gotta love that!

I had fun creating the stopper for this card.  These Christmas Novelty Buttons added just the right touch of fun to the card design.

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  I’m still working away on this year’s Christmas cards.  While red and green are traditional and beautiful Christmas colors, I’m having lots of fun playing with shabby chic colors this year.  This pink shabby chic Woodland Christmas easel card is adorned with Pearl  Pink Swiss Dots Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.Shabby Chic Woodland Christmas Easel Card Sweet Christmas by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Stamperia Photo 1
