This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a beautiful mix of Christmas themed ribbon.

The October Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and lace.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

So, I set out this month to create a flat card that you could easily mail in an envelope with no additional postage.  I actually did that (and should have photographed it that way), but it screamed for a bow!!  So I gave in…
Seriously, you could make this very card and omit the bow at the top and it would look gorgeous and mail beautifully.  I just LOVE bows so much that I couldn’t help myself…..

If you want to recreate this card without the bow at the top, simply adhere dove-tailed strips of ribbon across the back of your main panel before you adhere it to the card base.  This adds lots of visual interest and it’s a great way to use up some of those ribbon scraps.
My simple double-loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using the diamond satin ribbon style from the October Ribbon Club Assortment.  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty 12mm Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.
