Standard

Hey there everyone and welcome to another fun hop with the peeps at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

blog hop

We’re creating project with the December Ribbon Club Assortment Back to Basics.a2f9d-back2bto2bbasics2bdecember2bribbon2bclub2bassortment

I think it’s very classic and sophisticated.

You should be joining me from Gloria. If you’re just joining in you’ll want to head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to start at the beginning.

I created a card that’s very stylish and even almost modern.

I am not afraid to use dark colors on Christmas cards and I think this palate is very updated and mature.

Of course I’m still including pretty dimensional flowers like these magnolias. I’ve given them a bit of a face lift but switching out the stamens and adding a bit of faux snow on the petals.

I’ve layered a black doily under the arrangement to showcase the altered chipboard and patterned papers.

This bow is really quite fabulous topped with jingle bells and tiny brush trees.

Last but not least I’ve added a fair few vintage buttons. Just because it’s modern inspired doesn’t mean it cant have some classic details right?

Okay the next stop in the hop is Cheryl.

The cardinal image was on a sticker sheet that was on my desk for so long and although I attempted to put it away several times….I just loved that little bird so much I had to create something with it.

I’ve paired it with Echo Park papers in very vintagy patterns.

Here’s a shneaky peek of one of our Christmas trees…..it has a gingerbread theme with loads of lollipops, peppermints, candies, and of course my favorite cookie…..gingerbread.

All of these are ornaments of course because if it were real treats the tree would be bare by the time the holiday gets here. Just kidding….no really lol.

And here is the same tree this morning with a little furry friend come to enjoy the Christmas lights…..

Chipboard corners here create a bit of a frame and since they are painted in crisp white they don’t overpower the patterned papers.

Tiny festive clip and seasonal charms are the perfect finishing touch!

Deck The Halls Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Happy December Peeps! I’m sharing a card I created with the new Back to Basics December Ribbon Club Assortment.

I was so happy to see this collection as I have some really fabby plaids that I’ve been wanting to use and the black ribbon coordinates perfectly!

I think the black ribbon was the perfect choice to anchor the red plaid.

Did I mention I like plaid? I am all about the plaid!

These gorgeous flowers are from RRR too. I’ve created a nice arrangement full of blooms and die cut leaves and glittery accents.

The sentiment is layered over a festive holiday die cut that reminds me a bit of chalkboard : )

I balanced the larger arrangement with a smaller second combination that accents the layered poofy bow topped with jingle bells.

Even though I was working on a busy background I wanted a little something extra so I included die cut borders in flat black. A few pearl are the perfect finishing touch.
