Wintry Blues

Really Reasonable Ribbon-French Blue Delicate Stitched Satin-Ciao Bella-Time for Home-Kathy Clement

 Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Are you a fan of winter blues?  I have a soft spot for them because they remind me of my Vermont childhood.  There is a particular shade of blue that falls in the evening during the winter months, and I tried to capture it with this Wintry Feathered Friends Tea Party in a Box card.  RRR French Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon is such a good match for this icy blue card.

Ciao Bella Time for Home Tea Party in a Box by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design

We get lots of beautiful blue jays at our back yard feeder this time of year.  It's always a treat to see that flash of blue wings against the grey days of winter.  

TIP: Metallic Silver String is a great way to add a little extra sparkle to your bow cluster.  I tied a triple loop bow with my Bow it All Tool, then I topped it with a loopy metallic string bow .  This combination really says "winter" to me.

Here's a peek at the inside of this Tea Party in a Box Card.  

I created a little waterfall folio on the top half of the card.  This is a great place to preserve those great winter photos.

It's so much fun to open up the card and find this Tea Party in a Box inside the card.  What a great way to brighten up a dark wintry day!

Hope you are staying warm and cozy!  



  1. You are not only a master of creating lovely cards/folios; but your narratives always mirror the memories I experience when viewing your work. I grew up in VA and winter days can be brutally cold too. But there is always something magical about the birds, the playful foxes and prancing deer, and especially the sparkling light off the iced trees when the sun rises in the morning. This is what you capture in you work and make us smile as we remember - that is the wonderful gift you share with your views. THANK YOU!


We'd love to hear what you have to say
