Hello all - we are once again challenging your Christmas card making skills over at Crafting with Dragonflies: by asking you to add a ribbon to your card!
This card is a result of that - I loved this die when I first saw it and was determined to use it this Christmas - it makes such a great silhouette effect.
A Stampin' Up embossed sentiment in gold EP, on a Whisper White card with some Poppy Parade ink smeared around - I then attempted to draw a line around the oval and have discovered that my hands are not letting me have the fine motor control I used to have!
That is half the reason that I used the sparkling snowflake dies - to distract from the wobberly line
They were die cut from a Sizzix die
The mount is one of the last pieces of Poppy Parade (such a pity that colour is no longer available) I had - used because the ribbon I had originally chosen to use was that colour - it was also too wide for the card and had to be swapped out for this one; still red with gold trim but more narrow and the red is a bit darker.
The background paper is also from SU's Holiday catalogue
Tried several ways to get the gold to show properly
Finally, holding it in the sunshine did the trick!
Hope you like it
