Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog Hop


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


This month there is a beautiful assortment of White, Blue, Aqua, Lavender and Pink ribbons included in the December Ribbon Club.   This is such a pretty combination for Christmas cards.  Click HERE for more details on how you can sign up for the Monthly Ribbon Club.

If you are following the order of the blog hop you should have just come from Judy'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's Ramblings! Blog.


For my project I made a set of four quick and easy Christmas cards with the ribbon being the main focus.  On the first card I stamped snowflakes on the bottom half, added a sentiment at the top, ribbon and a snowflake with glitter and bling.  For the second card I made a banner going across the top of the card using the ribbon, added a sentiment at the bottom and a snowflake with glitter and bling.  


For the third card I added ribbon and crochet lace across the top, a sentiment at the bottom and a couple of twig die cuts with glitter and bling.  For the forth card I did a ribbon weave in the top corner, added a sentiment and a snowflake with glitter and bling.  


I used Simply Smooth White, Sno Cone, Pink Lemonade paper from DiscountCardstock.com on all of the cards.  The stamp set is CR-03800 Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments from  JustRite Papercraft.  I used several die templates to create the cards including--S5-131 A2 Matting Basics A, S5-132 A2 Matting Basics B, S5-117 2012 Snowflake Pendant, S4-365 Create A Flake Four and S4-328 Foliage all from Spellbinders.  For the inks I used Memento Rose Bud and Teal Zeal.  With just a few products and keeping the ribbon front and center I was able to create some fun and pretty Christmas cards in no time at all. 
 
Now to continue in the blog hop you need to hop on over to Vivian's Blog and check out her fantastic project!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the Really Reasonable Blog Hop!! Don't forget to visit the RRR Store and check out all of the beautiful ribbons, lace and trims!
I hope you have a wonderful and creative day!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi
