tie one on!

it's time for a brand new prompt at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ so this fortnight we'd like to see holiday cards that include ribbon, lace, trimmings, fibers, twine, ric rac, rick rack or even rickrack! my card has a few styles, see?

I've got two different sizes of scalloppy trimming by pink paislee that is meant to be misted or inked to match your project, but in this case, the natural color already matched so i left it plain. the wide printed ribbon is from graphic 45 and was given to me by leslie hanna. the velvet flower trim is from a holiday ribbon assortment by doodlebug that i've bought at least 3 or 4 times and always use up pretty quickly. my background is a page of pretty snowflakes from a vintage storybook, which i kind of regret not cutting down a bit more before wrapping all the ribbon around it, but once everything was ON THERE i decided to leave it be. the focal point is a beautiful vintage postcard which i scanned, reduced slightly and printed on semi-gloss photo paper.

stephanie also has an amazing card to show you, why not head over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and feast your eyes on that, darlings!
