Satin Ribbon

The challenge at Merry Monday this week is to use ribbon or twine on your Christmas card.

Look at the gorgeous inspiration picture.



I'd had this gorgeous ribbon that I'd saved from a gift box a couple of years ago.  It's a beautiful champagne-colored satin ribbon so I decided that it was going to be the main feature of my card.  It did take a bit of fiddling to get it looking right but I think it came out alright in the end.


The finishing touch for my card was a die-cut sent to me by my Secret Santa on the Merry Monday DT.  As part of my gift, I got a whole heap of die-cuts - none of which I already own.

This is an easy challenge so I'm expecting a whole heap of entries this week.  So go forth and create :)

Thanks for looking.

Products used:

Cardstock:  Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories:  Unknown Satin Ribbon; Die cut (PTI?)

Cheers
Karren
