Simple Elegance

Hi Everybody,

back again as promised with another Christmas Card for the Hatters Challenge. For this one I tried to make mirri card look elegant. I got the idea when I made the black & white card and box recently. Joined with some gorgeous 38mm wide satin ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons and embossed, what else is there to add? See for yourself:

Of course there is a lovely swirly Happy Christmas greeting on the inside. Initially I intended to add a tag or bauble to the front of the card, but I like the over-sized bow so much that I decided to make it the main feature – a good one if you have to make several cards. 🙂

Off to do some work now … and of course more Xmas cards!

Back soon.

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂


What I used: satin ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons; old olive card stock and cherry cobbler ink (inside greeting) from Stampin’UP!; Sizzix Snowflake (by Basic Grey) embossing folder from Cutting Edge Crafts; stamp for inside greeting, gold mirri card and cream card blank from my stash
