'Tis the Season

It's a Holiday Hoopla at the Ribbon Carousel!!  Lindsay is challenging us to make a creation celebrating a holiday...Christmas, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, or even New Year’s if you’re that far ahead!

I decided to use this challenge to create my family's 2011 Christmas card.  {I know....can you believe there isn't a colored image?!?!} I found this design to be something that I could quickly mass produce.  And believe it or not...I've employed Nathan & Brooke (for the price of a few candy canes) to help with putting these all together.  Let me tell ya... they are PROS at using a Cuttlebug and can really cranking out those die cuts!!  LOL  :)  They've loved having a part in creating our Christmas cards and we've had a lot of fun together doing it!!  xoxo

Once again I've used my favorite Christmas paper, (Lost & Found Christmas from My Mind's Eye) along with Scarlet Jewel and Kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink.  The Papertrey Ink (Signature Christmas) sentiment was stamped using Walnut Stain distressing ink.  To create the "honeycomb" look with the ornaments; I cut each MFT Die-namic Christmas Ornament four times, folded them in half and glued them together.  And was tickled pink when I realized that they would "lay down" perfectly flat for mailing!!  :)  But I think my favorite part would have to be the ribbon...I'm THRILLED with how it came out!!  It was really quite easy to create, all I did was used score tape to adhere a scrap of grosgrain ribbon to some beautiful Natural Crochet Lace from the Ribbon Carousel and tied a sweet little bow using my Bow Easy.   Waalaa!!  :)

This is beautiful!! I love the 3-d ornaments. I haven't even started my christmas cards that I will be sending out yet. I wanted Kara to draw a pretty Christmas scene and I was going to copy it and use it, but it is turning out to be a bigger feat that planned. She usually colors and draws so nice...but ask her to and she goes blank! LOL
