Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #285

Good Morning - we have a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge, I am the hostess this week and my challenge is to Add ribbon to your Christmas card.

I don't know about you but as the 'in' thing of cardmaking comes and goes I usually end of with an excess of supplies, ribbon is one of those. I use to incorporate ribbon into my design on so many cards, I tend to neglect my supply now.

I do love my rustic style Christmas cards and this one is no different. I created a die cut button then glossed it over by melting multiple layers of clear embossing powder. I pulled out some raffia ribbon to sting through the button.

I used simple layers for the rest of the card, the sentiment is heat embossed in black and popped up with foam tape.

Supplies: White Cardstock, Designer Paper - Photo Play - Gina K Designs - Compliments of the Season, SSS - Stitched Square, ribbon.

Come play along with the challenge, stop by the Merry Monday blog to take a look at all the great inspiration created by the Merry Monday Design Team.

Thanks for visiting,
