My card today features two of the ribbon styles from the August Ribbon Club assortment and some beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn designs. I just love creating with the rich colors of Autumn. I even added some gold leaf to some of the leaves and to the background honeycomb die for some rich shimmery sparkle.

This is a unique woven ribbon headband that I have not seem anywhere before. It’s a little trickier to manipulate the ends, but if you follow my suggestions on the video below and practice a little, you will be very pleased with the results. I created a few different color samples of this great woven ribbon headband but the possibilities are endless!

We will be sharing projects featuring dies from the Fall and Winter new release on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog from now through August 3rd in four parts. I hope you’ll join us each day. We will be beginning with Christmas and Winter dies and then showcasing Halloween, Fall & Thanksgiving and then we will finish off with a new die for a New Year!
I have to admit that I always have a hard time making Christmas cards in July when it’s 95 degrees outside! I decided to ease my way into things by starting with a non-traditional color scheme.
This Whimsical Christmas die set made me think of Dr. Seuss, so I thought the non-traditional colors would be perfect and I really like the way this turned out.
I cut all of my dies in multiple colors and I was very careful to retain all of the pieces (positive and negative) when I removed the paper from the die. I started with a silver base for my stockings and then carefully pieced each one together with the colors I wanted. I then added it to my background square which was created by cutting a white Lattice piece and adhering it to white cardstock. I thought a solid white background was too plain, so the white on white lattice was just right.
For the presents, I also cut the die in multiple colors. I pieced each present individually in the colors I wanted and then lined them up along the bottom of the card panel, slightly overlapping them.
I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment in pink and purple and layered the pieces, slightly offsetting to allow for a shadow effect.
