Evergreen Botanical Christmas Card Folio

Stamperia Winter Botanic by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Nothing says Christmas like freshly cut pine boughs.  Their fragrance and natural beauty are hallmarks of the holiday season.  So I was delighted to find some pine cone satin ribbon in my December Ribbon Club Assortment!  It inspired this lovely botanical Christmas card.

Really Reasonable Ribbon December Ribbon Club Assortment Stamperia Winter Botanic by Kathy Clement

I've used 3 of the gorgeous ribbons from the Club Assortment on this Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Card.  First, my bow cluster is made with  Tan Checkerboard Satin Ribbon.  The hue of this ribbon was a perfect match for the paper collection.  Then, to add pattern and texture to the card design, I layered 3/8" Pine Cone Satin Ribbon over 1/2" Brown/Cream Tartan Plaid Ribbon.  A pine cone satin bow cluster at the top helps to frame the card.

It's easy to turn this pretty card into a gift.  Just add a pocket and flap page to the interior.

I could not bring myself to cut this beautiful scene to fit inside my 5" x 7" card base.  The solution?  Simply score a flap on the right hand side.  Now I have a hand spot to tuck in a little chocolate treat!

The pocket on the bottom half of the card provides a great place to add a little gift card wallet and note card.  Since so many of us are mailing our gifts this year, it makes sense to turn the card into the gift!

How are you coming along with your Christmas preparations?  I have the house all decorated, but I'm still working to get my cards all done.  It's always a challenge to fit everything in during this busy season.  But remember to take time and enjoy the beauty, and make time to create something beautiful today.

Thanks for stopping by!
