The Bells Still Ring For Those Who Truly Believe

Hi friends.   Today I’m sharing a pretty card using the lovely Christmas Bell die set from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some lovely ribbon from the November Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The pretty color palette for this card was inspired by the November Country Holiday Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The November assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbons.

This bell set is so pretty!  I cut the bell die twice, once using a pretty purple/pink Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink paper I created and once in silver shimmer cardstock.  I then pieced in the silver accents.  The holly berries and leaves were added to the top of the bell.
The wonderful digital sentiment if from the Jingle Bells Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design.

May Peace Be Your Gift This Christmas

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a colorful Christmas card featuring the pretty Poinsettia Strip die from Cheery Lynn Designs and gorgeous ribbon from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I love the poinsettia die because it’s just so versatile.  Today I’m using some digital Christmas papers from Graciellie Design for some of the layers mixed with some red Distress Ink paper I created.  It’s a really interesting look.  I cut the layers of petals and shaped them a bit and then assembled.  I then added some greenery using the Pine Branches die.

My digital sentiment is from the Cheery Christmas Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design.The digital paper I used is from this Holiday Traditions Digital Paper Pack.

Wishing You a Blessed Winter

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a card featuring pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon paired with wonderful digital stamps and digital papers from Graciellie Design.

For my card today, I used some digital images from the Winter Blessings Set from Graciellie Design and ribbon from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.

The November Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.  Treat yourself today!

This was a really quick and easy card to create.  I simply arranged the pine branch and sentiment as I wanted them, printed it out on cardstock and cut the rectangle to size.  I quickly colored the pine branch with Copic Markers G99 and G99 by just flicking.  No need for precision for this coloring job.

Once colored, I layered the central panel on some different color cardstock layers to coordinate with my bow and boom – DONE.  This would be a really great quick and easy assembly line Christmas card, especially if you are low on time.  You could even simplify or eliminate the bow for additional time savings.  The simple ribbon across the center under the sentiment would be enough ribbon if you want the card to be flat for mailing.

Here is a look at the inside using two more of the digis in the set.  No reason why you can’t make the inside pretty too.

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8″ ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.  The center is finished off with a pretty 12mm Dotted Wave Rhinestone.
