My weekly Christmas card

Sunday, July 19, 2009

I did end up having a chance yesterday to make it down to my craft area and whip up this easy Christmas card for Sparkle's weekly challenge. The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday was also to make a Christmas card. Yeah. I also used the sketch from Unscripted Sketches.
I stamped the sentiment directly onto my ribbon but the picture is showing it very blurry. It's not quite that bad in real life. Also, if you look close, you can see that I used some glitter on the swirly part of each ornament.

***Supplies***
Patterned paper: CTMH Holly Days
Stamps: Oh Christmas Tree
Other: CTMH white grosgrain ribbon, prisma glitter, 1 inch circle punch

This is fabulous Alanna! I love that you made your own Christmas ribbon....the color red always looks fuzzy in photos, I have no idea why!
Another great 'simply stunning' card!
Hope you had a great weekend!
Blessings, Maria
