A Little Bit of Christmas...........

Hi there.  Ginny here from Polly's Paper Studio
Today is my first post as Guest Designer for August and I have to say I am pretty excited. Thanks to Bonnie for giving me the
opportunity to share my projects using ribbons and trims
from Really Reasonable Ribbon!

I used the Natural Burlap in red and white and layered on Seam Binding in red to create a nice border on the
bottom of this card. There's a few buttons tied with string for simple embellishments. The top of the card
has a beautiful vintage inspired image of Santa layered on a button card and inked doily. I sewed the layers
for extra detail and to help keep the card sturdy. To finish it off I layered in some pretty little chipboard
snowflakes that I inked and Stickled for a subtle shimmery sparkle.

Using a generous amount of red and cream Seam Binding, I created an extra poofy bow and topped it
off with another button and glass headed pin.

I just love all the dimension the trim adds to my cards. that's project #1. I'm having a great time using the trims.
This should be a fun month and I can't wait to post again : )
