Merry Christmas from Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi friends.  I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  

Today I'm sharing the holiday card that I've sent out to my family and friends.  Each year I make one design which I mass produce.  This works best for me.  Since I LOVE the holiday Plaid Ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon, that is what I've used this year.
I decided to go with traditional Christmas colors for my card and I LOVE cardinals, so this is what I came up with.
I ran a strip of Plaid Christmas Red/Green/Gold Ribbon across the middle of the card under the sentiment.  I also could not resist a layer of white mulberry paper under my layers.
In order to keep things flat for mailing, rather than a bow I simply took a piece of ribbon, tied a knot in the middle and then dove-tailed the ribbon ends.  This is a flat enough embellishment for mailing in a regular envelope with no additional postage.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on the other items used on my card, visit my Make Time to Craft blog.  Happy crafting!


  1. This card is so gorgeous! Merry Christmas to you too.

  2. So very pretty! The Cardinal is my favorite bird. We have a pair
    in our neighbor's yard that I hear almost daily - but they sure love
    to hide! lol Merry Christmas to you & yours, Bonnie.

  3. The ribbon truly complements this beautiful card


We'd love to hear what you have to say
