I was cleaning the other day and I found this wonderful spool of ribbon that I had bought (most likely on clearance) to make Christmas cards out of.
I actually immediately went to my studio and made a couple cards. Sometimes you just have to do it - and who does not need a break from cleaning. How lucky that the current challenge at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge is to use ribbon.
I removed the wire from the edges of the ribbon. There are two different designs of cardinals on the ribbon. I made a card for each cardinal design.
The first image I used the design is longer (how cool it includes a sentiment on the ribbon also) I picked up on the natural tones of the images and used kraft, red, green and brown for my card stock.
I added some dry embossing to add more texture to the card.
Here is the second design. I actually kitted some of these for my friend Mary. She helps with a craft fair that benefits Hospice in South Carolina. I try to help out with different things.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you find something wonderful while you are cleaning.
