Stamperia Winter Botanic Deer Christmas Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop
Hello, Friends! This Stamperia Winter Botanic Deer Christmas Card is my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog. The month of October means we are rolling out a beautiful Christmas Ribbon Club Assortment.
I love traditional reds and greens at Christmas, especially if plaid ribbon is involved! So I decided to make my project for the hop with the Forest Green Plaid and Forest Green Checkerboard Satin Ribbons from the assortment.
Winter Botanical Deer Card
If you’re working with 2 shades of Forest Green ribbon, you really ought to make a forest/botanical themed card, don’t you think? So I did! The green hues of these ribbons really made my vintage style papers come alive.
First, I used the Forest Green Checkerboard Satin to attach my metal word strip to the bottom of my focal image. The 3/8″ ribbon slides nicely through the openings on each end.
Next, I tied a very merry Christmas bow with the Forest Green Plaid ribbon from the assortment. Topped with sparkly cream flowers from my stash, it adds the perfect evergreen vibe to the card design.
A Peek Inside
I created a pocket and a flap element inside the card to give me a place to tuck in some treats.
Hide a candy cane behind the flap page. Then tuck a little chocolate treat into the little note card that fits in the pocket. It’s a card and a gift in one, now.
On With the Hop!
From here, you will hop on over and see what paper pretties the lovely Cheryl has waiting for you. Be sure to finish up over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. Answer Bonnie’s “Question of the Month” to be entered into a drawing for your very own Christmas Ribbon Club Assortment.
Now is the perfect time to join the RRR Ribbon Club. Each month you’ll receive a special assortment of themed ribbons in the mail. It’s like getting a Christmas present all year long! You can find out how to join HERE.
