Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop - December Ribbon Club

Good morning blogging friends! Today, is the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop for the month of December. The RRR Design Team Members and Special Event Design Team Members will be showcasing the Monthly Ribbon Club.

There is a beautiful assortment of White Ribbons, Lace and Trim included in the December Winter Whites Monthly Ribbon Club. Click HERE for more details.

If you are following the order of the blog hop you should have just come from Joanna's Blog. If not and you just happened to pop in for a visit please click HERE to start the blog hop at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.

For my project I designed a Christmas card and matching Christmas ornament.

On the card I made a wide border using several of the ribbons in the Winter Whites collection. Then I stamped the sentiment using Rich Cocoa ink and CR-02250 Winter Words stamp set from JustRite Stampers.

Here is a close up of the little felt mitten. I used S4-285 Nested Mittens die template from Spellbinders™ and also added some of the lace and trim from the Winter White Ribbon Club collection. To create the look of little pearls I used a Viva Cream Pearl Pen.

To create the little Christmas mitten ornament I used ivory felt and the largest die template in the set from S4-285 Nested Mittens. I cut two mittens and then I did a blanket stitch around the edges, leaving the top of the mitten open.

Before sewing the two mittens together I sewed ribbon and lace trim across the top of the front mitten.

Next I die cut the flower and leaves from ivory felt using S5-050 Rose Creations, S4-328 Foliage die templates and then added color and glitter to each piece.

To add the color and glitter I used a mixture of Glimmer Mist and Liquid Laminate, applied it with a q-tip and then added the glitter. I used the Liquid Laminate as an adhesive for the glitter but it also makes the felt harden up once it's dry.

Taking a small piece of the lace trim I created a little rosette for the center of the flower.
