Really Reasonable Ribbon October Blog Hop

Good morning, Blogger Peeps! I am guest designing for Really Reasonable Ribbon again this month and it is time for the October Blog Hop

You should be coming to my blog from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.) After visiting me, hop over to Ginny's Blog next! 

Here is a peeky at the RRR October Ribbon Club Assortment. This one is called Crazy for Christmas! 

I love traditional Christmas colors, and this assortment is perfect! Plus, the cute mitten ribbon makes me smile!

I used some new papers that found their way into my stash last month. The collection is from Echo Park, The Story of Christmas. I also used a chipboard element from Graphic 45 'Twas the Night Before Christmas collection, which is from last year. I have a lot of prints going on in this card, but somehow it works and feels happy and festive!

I wrapped the panel with the Forest Green satin ribbon and then wrapped again with the Christmas Fun Flowers satin.  I tied the bow with the flowered ribbon. (If you need help with single-sided printed ribbon, see the video HERE. I used the second method that Bonnie shares on the video to make my bow.) I always make my bows separately and then hot glue them to the base ribbon. I also cut some little flags from the Mittens on Poppy Red Grosgrain ribbon.

I decorated the inside of the card with a printed panel wrapped with the mitten ribbon. I added a stamped sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today! Now, hop over to Ginny's Blog next!
