Cardinal Christmas Wishes

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday to you all!! Todays card is Cardinal Pine Bough, and Christmas Wishes!

On my card today I used this BEAUTIFUL 1.5" Ivory Pleated Satin ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon I think this ribbon is perfect for cards,scrapbook pages,photo books, and recipe cards. There are differnet colors to choose from, but I decided to use the Ivory for my card today.

I also used Brown Glitz Ribbon for my bow! I love the look of this ribbon and its kinda hard to see the full glitz in my picture here. Here is a link to the ribbon, and there are others tooo in the Metallic section of the store!!

I used the ivory ribbon as a border going down the side of my card, I then added sewing to this panel. Next I made the smaller panel and added sewing to it as well.




For my image I used Heartfelt Creations Lg. Cardinal Pine Bough and Matching diecuts to layer the cardinal. Ive colored my image with copics, and layered my cardinal with foam squares.

Lastly I added a bow, with buttons. All ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon! And Bonnie carries sooo many Beautiful ribbons and her prices are AWESOME!!!! Check out all the ribbons HERE!!! Have fun!
