Winter Wishes Christmas Card: Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop with Gracielle Design
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! It’s time for the November Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon. This month we’re teaming up with Gracielle Design. I’ve used her digital stamps and papers to create this elegant Winter Wishes Christmas Card. If you’ve come here from Karen’s lovely blog, then you are right on track. Now let’s get to hopping!
This month, we’re focusing on the ribbons in the gorgeous November Ribbon Club Country Christmas Assortment. I had such fun pairing these lovely ribbons up with Gracielle Design Winter Blessings Digital Stamps and Holiday Traditions Digital Paper Collection. Here’s a look at these lovely ribbons.
Winter Wishes Christmas Card
This is a 5″ x 7″ top fold card. After printing out my digital papers, I cut them to size. Then I inked the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Next, I double matted the layers on silver metallic and burgundy cardstock. Then I created extra dimension in this Winter Wishes Christmas card by adding waste chipboard (instead of foam spacers) between the layers.
Winter Wishes Christmas Card: Ribbon to the Rescue!
In my world, ribbon is always the perfect finishing accent. I pulled out my trusty Bow-it-All Tool to create this elegant bow cluster. The base layer is a double loop bow tied with Moss Bold Diamond Print Satin Ribbon. The next layer shimmers thanks to 3/8″ Soft Pine Satin with a Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon. The icing on this Winter Wishes Christmas Card Bow Cluster is a delicate string bow tied with Gold Metallic String. Last, but not least, I’ve added a silver button from my stash.
Winter Wishes Christmas Card: A Peek Inside
Now it’s time to finish the inside of this pretty card. I layered up scraps of my digital papers with another lovely sentiment from the Winter Blessings Digital Stamp set. Dress this up with a little ribbon border and a few sparkling silver gumdrops.
Then, add a little gift card pocket filled with a tea bag and a honey stick to finish with a flourish!

From here, you will hop on over to see what paper pretties Cherry has in store for you.
