Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop!

You should be coming to me from Dawn's Blog. If not, go back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and start the hop! (It's fun, trust me!)

I used the December Ribbon Club Assortment for my project. This assortment is all white and is stunning in person! Some of the ribbon has sparkle, plus there is lace and ric rac in the set!

I wanted to make the most of the white theme, so here is my card. It does seem very snowy to me!

There is something about this card that makes me want to look at it all day long! I hope I can part with it and mail it to someone for Christmas! I used Memory Box papers and lots of Spellbinders™ die templates.

I used the white ric rac to make borders on my polar bear paper, then tied a bow onto the ornament with the organza and satin ribbon. I even used some candy cane twine to tie on the button!

I cut that beautiful poinsettia with the Spellbinders Shapeabilities® Layered Poinsettia die set. The flower is stunning in white!

I can't say enough about making bows with the Bow Easy tool! You cannot make a crappy bow with this guy!

I hope you enjoyed your visit!

Now, keep on hopping! Go to Jan's Blog next!
