Hey, hey! The Crafty ribbons Christmas event is still going on at Crafty ribbons inspiration blog, but today we also have a new challenge for you at Crafty ribbons challenge blog. Yup, a lot has been going on. lol
Our sweet Ali and Tony from Crafty ribbons are sponsoring Christmas event today.
You could win an amazing prize just by leaving your name with Mr. Linky at the Crafty ribbons inspiration blog. Easy peasy, right?
And if you decide to come and participate in our challenge (which I hope you will!), you could win another yummy ribbon prize. How awesome is this?!
I decided to make a criss cross card. My friend Nicole was talking about making one the other day and she got me inspired to try and make one myself as well. This is the first one I've made so far - one thing to cross of my "things to do" list. :)
I made this card for my friend (Katie, I hope you are not peaking!!!). I wanted to do something special, something a bit different, so here it is. I used my new papers from Papermania. Aren't they beautiful?! I love them. I used Yeti Yumi from Yumi and Fumi Handmade and 'Tis the season sentiment stamp from Hobby Lobby. I coloured Yumi with distress inks and I also added some glitter glue on the lights. Then I raised her on foam pades and glued it on my card. I cut the sentiment apart, raised it on foam pads and then glued it on the oval which I previously embossed with Cuttlebug's swiss dots embossing folder. I covered the sentiment with glitter glue too. Then I just added some sequins, die cut flowers and 25 mm white satin ribbon from Crafty ribbons and this is the result. I hope Katie will like it!
I'd like to enter my project to the following challenges:
Allsorts: Insired by a Christmas song/carol (my carol is "Deck the halls" - 'Tis the season to be jolly ...)
The ribbon girl: Christmas
