At Just Add Ink this week we have a wonderful sketch from Bronwyn to inspire us.
I decided to make another Christmas card. I don’t enjoy making the same card over and over again so I love using these challenges as a way to build up my supply of Christmas cards.
The gorgeous ribbon flower that is. I decided to see whether I could use a flower that wasn’t a poinsettia on a card and make it look “Christmassy” and of course I had to choose this sort of flower :)
I used a leaf from French Foliage with it and I think they worked really well together. I used old olive ink on river rock card and clear embossed them. They look great in real life.
I stamped and embossed clear the Merry Christmas with cherry cobbler. The cherry background has also been embossed with the stripe embossing folder and it really added a lot to the card but unfortunately you can’t see it much in the photo.
With the addition of my favourite ribbon, cherry seam binding, I think my Christmas ribbon flower experiment was a success.
