Ribbon Christmas Tree

Hello Everyone,


Christmas is certainly fast approaching, so yes, I’m madly making cards as is everyone else who doesn’t do Christmas Cards All Year Round – A concept I’m coming to appreciate! lol

I saw this idea in the latest Simply Cards magazine here in Australia and had just the ribbon tucked away  in my stash ( purchased from Craft Queen last year).

It looks even better in real life as the satin ribbon shines beautifully.
The sentiment says “Rocking around the Christmas Tree” and I then stamped the Christmas Tree part again so it was nice and even along the bottom.
The star is a Quickcuts die cut from metallic silver paper and the centre part glittered Red.

There is quite a bit of dimension to the ribbon...

The paper is from Kaiser Craft (one of the christmas releases, not sure which). It has layered up nicely on green & white card stock.

Will be off to make a few more of these tomorrow, I’ve got a feeling they’ll be popular Smile

I’d like to enter it at the following challenges:-
