Hello, Friends! I’ve been having the BEST time playing with my Graphic 45 Saint Nicholas papers and my Really Reasonable Ribbon October Ribbon Club Assortment. The Traditional Christmas Mix Ribbons are such great playmates for these pretty papers! Just look how well they pair up in this Happy Holly Days Card.
Doesn’t this Red Bold Check Ribbon look fabulous? I topped it with a Poinsettia Berry pick from Petaloo.
Tying a big poufy bow like this is not as hard as you might think. I rely heavily on my Zutter Bow it All Tool.
Adding a little Natural Jute String bow to the mix adds to the vintage feel of the card. Would you like to take a peek inside?
A tiny pocket is the perfect place to tuck in a miniature Ghiradelli chocolate. (There’s room for 2!)
Have you started creating your Christmas cards yet? I have a few, but no where near enough, so I’d best say goodbye for now and go get busy making more!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

RRR Traditional Christmas Mix and G45 Saint Nick
This festive collection of ribbons and trims is a perfect playmate for the new G45 Saint Nick Christmas collection!
Jingle all the way with this fabby Traditional Christmas plaid bow cluster! It’s been topped with gold metallic string and some teeny tiny jingle bells that really ring! I layered 3/8″ emerald checkerboard satin over Poppy Red Shimmer satin to create a beautiful border at the base of my card. The Shimmer Satin has tiny flecks of gold that catch the light. It’s gorgeous!
A second ribbon border tops the card. This time I’ve layered up Emerald Delicate Stitched Satin with White Crochet lace. Poppy Red Diamond Stitched Satin adorns the sentiment panel.
Santa will be glad he popped down the chimney when he sees the party that’s waiting for him on the inside of this card!
There’s even a teeny tiny gift card envelope! How fun!
Now, hop on over and see what sweet treat Deborah has cooked up for you.
