Christmas Cards

I had a Christmas card day yesterday. Here are some of the cards I made.
I used Tree Trimmings and Perfect Punches stamps sets, with Garden Green, Real Red and Whisper White card and Real Red and Garden Green ink. The background is made with the So Swirly roller. I received my new Scallop Trim border punch this week so I just had to use......along with the Scallop Circle punch.

For this card, I had a go at using my colour coach. Using Real Red, Crumb Cake and Bashful Blue card and ink. Again, I used the Tree Trimmings Stamp set and Merry Christmas from the Contempo Christmas. Whisper card and real red ribbon.

Stamp Set is Contempo Christmas and Baroque Motifs. Jolly Holiday Designer Paper, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Very Vanilla card, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive ink.

Ribbon Holder

I thought I would share my fantastic wooden ribbon holder with you. I just love it. It was made by a crafty friend's friend.....who designed it specially to fit Stampin' Up! ribbons - how fabbi is that. All three rows will fit the large ribbon reels (as displayed on the top rung). If anyone is interested in one, please email me. The cost is £15 excluding p&p.
