This week at Just Add Ink we have a colour challenge for you.
I have never used this colour combo before and it is just so pretty.
I decided to make another Christmas card to add to my slowly growing collection.
You can’t see it very well in the photo but the cherry cobbler panel that the ribbon is on is embossed with the polka dot embossing folder. It gives the card more dimension and ties in with the dots on the ornament and the pearls on the elegant bouquet embossed panel.
I used the organza ribbon in a new way on this card. I had decided that I wanted the ribbon as a band behind the ornament but I wanted to also tie some ribbon to the ornament to kind of “hang it” to the branch. I tried so many different ribbons, thread and cord, but nothing looked right. Then I had the idea to cut off the edging of the organza ribbon and try that. Well it tied beautifully and worked perfectly with the rest of the card. So I was very pleased with that discovery and I will definitely be using organza that way again :)
