Christmas Card Hop with The Ribbon Resource

Happy Friday!  Each Friday until Christmas, you'll find Christmas inspiration from the Prima Ribbonista's at the The Ribbon Resource - May Arts Ribbon Retail Store .  Today, we're featuring Christmas cards on the blog and you'll also have a chance to win a prize. 

I finally got my hands on the paper collection, "A Christmas Carol" from Graphic 45.  I love these beautiful papers and I couldn't wait to pair them with some pretty ribbons from The Ribbon Resource.

Ribbons used from The Ribbon Resource:

To begin, I cut some of the Graphic 45 papers with Spellbinders dies.  You'll find a full supply list at the end of this post.

Next, I did a some background paper piecing.  All my adhesives today are from Xyron.

I fussy cut some images and popped them out with foam squares, embellished with my ribbon and added some glitter glue.

My ribbon focus on the lower left corner includes burlap string that's triple looped in a figure eight and secured with an adhesive dot in the center; a tiny gold metallic bow, and burlap stitched ribbon that is threaded through the ends of my die-cut sentiment frame.  I also mounted my Scrooge and Tiny Tim image on vellum to keep my detailed die cut edges from blending into the background.  This also allowed me to pop it up on foam squares and add some glitter glue around the border.

Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share this pretty creation with you today.  I hope you've been inspired to jump into Christmas cardmaking, and use your ribbon as well, for that special homemade touch!
