Christmas Ribbon

I know, I know, it's not even Halloween yet and I'm already showing you Christmas cards, but as crafters we have to think one season ahead.  This gives us time to plan, order and create.  :)  

The first time I saw this ribbon technique I believe it was done using one of SU's flower punches.  I thought it would look good as an ornament.  What do you think?   

To add a little shimmer to the Cherry Cobbler cardstock, I used my new Illuminate stamp pad and inked up the Parlor Prints background stamp.  I love how it shimmers when the light hits it.

I probably should have embossed the Merry Christmas BEFORE stamping the background stamp because some black embossing powder stuck to the Illuminate ink, but I think I like it. 

One of the reasons I am showing this card so early is because SU has a special right now which includes the ornament framelits.   I wanted you to be able to see some of the fun things this Framelit can make.  Don't worry though.   I have a PUMPKIN video on Friday, showing you how I made my 3-D pumpkin.  (It uses the pack of Framelits!)
