Really Reasonable Ribbon October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon October Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cheryl’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.  Be sure to comment on the post on the RRR Blog for a chance to win your own October Ribbon Club Assortment.

This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is all about Christmas.  

Not a member yet?
The October  Ribbon Club 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.

This month I created a pretty and sparkly Christmas card. 

Dies used:
Cottage Cutz Joy Nativity die
Cheery Lynn Designs FRM154 Quatrefoil A2 Frame 2 Die Set 
Cheery Lynn Designs XM7 Oval Die Cut
Cheery Lynn Designs M7 Oval Classic Stacker Layers, Small, Silver

I actually purchased the Joy Nativity die last year with the intention of using it for my Christmas cards, but it was a bit too intricate and it would have taken too much time to use it to mass produce 25+ cards.  It’s a lovely die to use for a few special people though.  I layered shimmery silver and gold cardstock for added interest.

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with a  12mm Silver Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.  I also added a double layer of pretty ribbons across the center of the card under the sentiment.
