Window of Christmas Wishes

Hello everyone, super excited to be sharing my Christmas card made for Really Reasonable Ribbon. For my card today I used beautiful Gingham Ribbon and Twine from RRR.

I made the window on my card by using 2 dies, and love the way it turned out. The paper also works perfect with this window, as it looks like a curtain and love the little gingerbread men. hehehehe

Card Instructions-
Card measures white 6 x 12 scored at 6 for a 6"x 6" card base.
Layer 1- blue bazzill bling card stock was cut at 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" then the brown design paper from American Crafts was cut at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Next I added more design paper to this layer and it's the blue polka dots, it measures 5"x 5"
Layer 2-  4 1/4" x 4 1/4" brown, next is blue 4" x 4", then the design paper with the gingerbread men is cut at 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"
Layer 3 (Window)- is created using the JustRite Die called Four In a Square Dies. I then used JustRite Hope Oval Frame and cut the sides to create the top and bottom ornate window toppers. All cut in brown card stock. I also stamped right on the design paper Merry Christmas using the sentiment from the JustRite Nativity Sentiments.

Flower layers- JustRite Floral Trio Two Dies (1,2,3 were used to create these).  These were easy as I have a bag of them cut up using this random card stock I got for super cheap, so I keep them to color, however these are left plain. NOTHING done on them...hehehe now that is a first for me :) I did add a brown pearl to each center.

Bow Treatment- Really Reasonable Ribbon Gingham in Red, also used the twine, and foam tabs to pop up my layers here.

Tiny Ornament Tag was cut using JustRite Papercrafts Snowflake and Tag Dies. I cut it out with the coordinating design paper, and then stamped the sentiment and holly from these sets (Holly berry from JustRite Inside and Outside Christmas Sentiments), and then the Joyeux Noel is from the Small Oval Christmas Tidings stamp set. These are both newly released, and I LOVE all the sentiments in both of these sets.

Really Reasonable Ribbon brown leaves

Really Reasonable Ribbon bakers twine

Here is a close-up of the tag and bow I colored the holly and berries with copics R59 for the red, and then for the greens I used YG95, and YG13
