Hello folks! Every month in my card class, we get to make one Christmas card, one Birthday card and one "Occasions" card. I decided to do this as we all had a mad rush on, to get Christmas cards out last year (and the year before!). This method helps keep the stock levels up and there is always a birthday that needs a card! I have several cards that I will share with you, but today it is this woven ribbon card's debut! It was great fun doing this and whilst it is unlikely that I personally will be making too many like this, a couple for very special people is great to have ready to mail. I used a Marianne die for the 'bauble' and Nellie Snellen Holly punch for the greenery. The ribbon has a fine gold edge that looks lovely woven. The Sentiment is a PTI stamp and the banner is from SSS. The girls really enjoyed this, even though the weaving was a little fiddly, the end result made it so worthwhile. The ribbon could easily be replaced with Quilling Strips for a different look. I hope it inspires you to get going on your Christmas cards!
Thanks so much for stopping by and hopefully I'll be back on track - again - and will also get around to visit your blogs and say Hi!
