Hi friends.  I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  
Today I’m sharing the holiday card that I’ve sent out to my family and friends.  Each year I make one design which I mass produce.  This works best for me.  Since I LOVE the holiday Plaid Ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon, that is what I’ve used this year.
Handmade Christmas Card with ribbon

I decided to go with traditional Christmas colors for my card and I LOVE cardinals, so this is what I came up with.

Dies used:
Dee’s Distinctively Cardinal
Cheery Lynn Designs B146 Pine Branches 
Cheery Lynn Designs XL7 Oval Classic Stackers Die Cut, Large 
Cheery Lynn LPC 7 Oval Pierce & Cut Tool

I ran a strip of Plaid Christmas Red/Green/Gold Ribbon across the middle of the card under the sentiment.  I also could not resist a layer of white mulberry paper under my layers.
In order to keep things flat for mailing, rather than a bow I simply took a piece of ribbon, tied a knot in the middle and then dove-tailed the ribbon ends.  This is a flat enough embellishment for mailing in a regular envelope with no additional postage.
