Merry Ribbon

One of my goals for this year is to create more Christmas cards throughout the year so I can send cards to more people and not struggle in December to get them all done.  To help me reach that goal I am going to try to complete as many Merry Monday Challenges as I can.

The challenge this week is to use ribbon, trim, or Baker's Twine.  Perfect because I just got my order from Pretty Pink Posh and her Valentine kit included this adorable pom-pom ribbon.

Merry Monday #90

This tag was so easy to make.   First I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso Ink, then I added a strip of Champagne Glimmer paper.  Cutting out the tag was a cinch with my new Banner Framelits.  I simply chose that one that fit the stamped image best and ran it through my Big Shot.  The framelit cut through the cardstock and glimmer paper smoothly.

After the tag was cut I used Tombow Mono Multi glue to adhere the pompom ribbon.   Wrapping the ribbon around to the back added some extra bulk, so I popped up my tag using dimensionals.  To get the "little" in red I inked that part of the stamp up with a Real Red marker and stamped it on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock. I cut the banner out and glued it on top of the Early Espresso "little".

The entire thing was layered onto some music sheet DSP to ite into the Christmas Carol.  It feels a little funny to be making a Christmas card now that the tree is down and the decorations are put away, but I bet I'll be glad next November that I have one less card to make.  ;)

Creative Blessings,

I admit I bought the kit for those adorable spools of thread and the fabulous mix of sequins.  It's funny to me that I used the ribbon first.  :)

The Pom Pom trim and glitter ribbon look fabulous decorating the banner sentiment. I love the music background and the lovely DSP too. Thank you so much for joining us at Merry Monday Heather.
