Thanks for popping by. I have another Christmas card to share with you today and it is nothing like what I envisioned when I started! I wanted to play along with the Merry Monday Challenge - Add a Ribbon but wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do! Initially I thought maybe I'll make a card without a stamped image (big challenge for me!) and had thought of purple and silver! I sat at my desk for over an hour, while bubs was having her nap, and nothing came to me so I gave up. Then when she went to bed for the night I started going through some old stamped and coloured images and found this one. Poor James the Bear has been sitting in a folder for years...I'm not sure how many..three at least! I thought it was about time is was put on a card. I knew I had quite a stash of green and red ribbon so thought I would give the challenge a go.
Here is what I came up with.
LOTV Rubber Stamp - James the Bear Pile of Presents
MFT Stamps - Gift Tag Greetings
PaperTrey Ink Impression Plate - Linen and Canvas
Ribbon Girl - Olive Green Teeny Tiny Pom Pom Trim
Ribbon Girl - 16mm Red Saddlestitch Ribbon
Ranger Stickles - Diamond
Ranger Enamel Accents - Black
It was good to use up some of my ribbon. I bought a tonne of it years ago for cards and then wasn't sure how to use it and decided it wasn't really my thing! I'm actually surprised I managed to find the name/type of ribbon I used on this card, it's so old.
The stamp I used is no longer available in rubber but I checked the website and it can purchase it as a digi stamp now :)
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
- Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
- Winter Wonderland - Cute Christmas Critters
- ABC Christmas Challenge - H is for Hats
Thanks for visiting, have a great day.
