Ok, so I know it's not Christmas and it's not even still June !! Well - let me explain ...... I'm partipating in the Waltzingmouse Forum Christmas Card Challenge where every month Lynn gives us a new challenge to use for that month's Christmas cards.
The June Challenge was to use a big ribbon and I think I kept putting off making a card because I like to make my Christmas cards as thin as possible so they don't cost extra postage and I knew a big ribbon would be THICK! But when it suddenly got to be July I realized I better get one made before the July challenge got posted!!
So here's what I created:
Vintage Ornament set and thought this background from Pic-Nic Patterns would look good behind it. The sentiment is from Compliments of the Season. The ornament is popped up on foam tape and the ribbon is adhered with a glue dot.
I always like to make at least 3 cards when I do the Christmas challenge so hopefully I'll have enough to send out when December rolls around - so I made three this month just changing the sentiment on the ornament. And you know - this silk ribbon is pretty light so I bet if I do mail them it may not even be more postage! So much for worrying so long about it!!!
check it out and come join us! You'll thank me in December!!
