Merry Christmas Y'all

Welcome back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, everyone, and thanks again for visiting us today.  I hope you're all doing well, staying happy and healthy; and that you've had lots of time lately to create pretty things.  I always enjoy stopping by your blogs to gain inspiration, and I hope you enjoy visiting me as well.  It's always a treat when I find extra time to spend in my craft room creating things; and there are SO many great products at Really Reasonable Ribbon including the oodles and oodles of ribbons, laces, twines and trims they carry as well as all sorts of other goodies.  The projects I'm sharing with you today incorporate some of my favorites from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I started with a red cardstock and then cut a black cardstock frame using a die-cut scalloped frame.  I added a patterned paper to the center of that, and incorporated several other patterned paper scraps/snippets that I machine stitched onto my base.  I used of lots of fabulous Scor-Tape to adhere all these pretty layers together.
I used a smaller frame from the same die-cut set; and cut my sentiment piece from vellum (outer) and cream cardstock (center).  I stamped my sentiment using a set  called Merry Christmas Y'all.  Next, I used a die to cut my snowflake and I covered it in ultrafine glitter to give it some sparkle.
I used an Echo Park sticker for the truck and a couple other small accents.  The green sprigs are from Crate Paper, and pretty much everything else is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This includes a length of Cherry Baker's Twine, Solid Black Baker's Twine, a Deep Ivory Open Rose, and some Black Miniature Double Head Stamens, Wine Red Double Head Stamens and Milk White Double Head Stamens.  There's also a Tim Holtz rusty paper clip and a few red prills on my card.
The tag I made was cut using the For You Sweet Cut Tag from Paper Sweeties.  I added some patterned paper and stickers (also Echo Park) to my tag.  I ran a width of Black and White Plaid Gingham Ribbon across the tag; and made a bow using the same Gingham Ribbon, some Cream Seam BindingBlack Seam Binding and Red Pom Pom trim.  There's never a shortage of pretty ribbons and trims at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You'll also find AdhesivesMulberry FlowersEmbellishments and SO much more.   Thanks SO much for stopping by, and please visit  us again soon.
