Stamperia Pink Christmas Card Folio: Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Welcome to the RRR November Blog Hop. You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog. I have such a treat for you today! This Stamperia Pink Christmas Card Folio sparkles and shines with shabby chic charm. I’ve dressed it up in its holiday best using dreamy ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.
This card feels like a magical portal back in time to a peaceful, simple, cozy Christmas! It measures 5 3/4″ x 7 3/4″ x 1/2″ and is richly layered with papers, images, ribbons, flowers and all the shabby chic elements I love the most. Don’t you want to spend the holidays in this serene and scenic spot?
Stamperia Pink Christmas Card Folio: The Layers
To create this rich, layered look follow these simple steps:
- First cut a 5 5/8″ mat from soft teal cardstock. Distress the edges and ink with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.
- Next, cut a 5 1/2″ mat from soft pink cardstock and repeat the distressing steps.
- Now cut a 5 1/4″ layer of the pink and aqua mixed media background page from Pink Christmas. (The one with the squirrels on the back side).
- Then stitch or adhere all 3 layers together .
- Add a layer of white crochet lace from the ribbon club assortment along the border edge of the patterned paper.
- Now fussy cut the image from the paper collection and back with dimensionals like foam tape or waste chipboard.
- Use postage stamp shaped scissors to cut out the stamp images and layer behind the focal along with the “Christmas” banner.
- Adhere a white glitter snowflake in the upper left hand corner of the card.
- Then adhere all the other layers in place.
Stamperia Pink Christmas Card Folio: The Bow Cluster
Here’s how I created this deliciously shabby chic bow cluster.
- First tie a 3.5″ double loop bow with 5/8″ White Shimmer Satin. Adhere to the card base.
- Now tie a 3.5″ double loop bow with 3/8″ Light Pink Organza/Satin Center Ribbon. Adhere in the center of the White Shimmer Satin Bow.
- Twist the stems of 3 Pretty Flori Mulberry Flowers (currently out of stock) together and adhere to the top of the bow cluster.
- Tuck in some White Bead/Berry Spray Clusters.
- Tie white jingle bells together with Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine. Tuck into the bow cluster, securing with hot glue.
- To add snowy effects to the flowers, dry brush with ivory acrylic paint.
Stamperia Pink Christmas Card Folio: Detail Shots
This little vignette is created on top of a slice of wood my son cut from a branch. First, I painted the surface with Picket Fence Distress Paint. Then I added some Ranger Crackle Texture Paste and Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the edges. Then I adhered the mini Woodland Tree, some more bead/berry clusters and a vintage button from my stash. Next, I adhered the entire assemblage to a cut apart from the paper collection, backed it with foam adhesive and adhered in place. A few more shell buttons from my stash, some icy branches and a touch of Diamond Stickles and dry brushing with acrylic paint complete the card.

Love the colors of this month’s RRR release and, even more, the beautiful way you’ve used these colors, Kathy. The Stamperia papers are delightful and combine so well with the ribbon. Your folio design shows them so well. Especially like the fold-out and the mini envelope. tfs

Oh Kathy I’m there!!!! Inside that beautiful house looking out at the wonderful scenes around me. Your card is stunning and I love the inside too and there is the robin for my treasured memories. Beautiful just beautiful. Stamperia do some wonderful designs Thank you my friend.xx
Oh my! Another awesome paper beauty. I’ve had my eye on this pink collection. 😉 Yesterday I made one of your Jingle tags, using Stamperia Botanic Christmas in place of the Authentique. I can’t wait to make more. You’ve inspired me to get out the embossing folders and powders too. Thank you for all that you do.
Another ‘stuffed with goodness’ folio Kathy…I don’t know how you do it – absolutely gorgeous. Do you mind me asking if there are a few blog posts where you give instructions for the actual folio or would you consider a post on just that..Some different folio bases that take the fabulous layers (no harm in asking 🙂
Absolutely stunning – I don’t know what it takes to get to your shop before things are sold! You have to let me know when you’re going to post so I can set my alarm for 2am!
I love the way this looks – and I want to give one exactly like it to my mother for Christmas. Now that you’ve sold yours, I’ve ordered the RRRibbon package and the Stamperia package – and this darn thing is gonna cost a hundred bucks by the time I’m all done. LOL LOL LOL
But, it’s so charming – and romantic – and right perfect for mother. Thanks, as always, for your inspiration!
Just stunning Kathy!!
