Originally I was going to make a loop of ribbon and put a button which had a star on top to close the card. However when I saw this ribbon I decided to put a border on both sides with ribbon pulled through to make ties. My border was too wide so I cut it narrower and it still was too wide so I decided to glue the straight edge as well as put the ribbon through on that side. The trees and stars are cut out of scrap paper. As is the border pieces. The tree, stars, and border are all Silhouette cutting files.
Opps! I forgot that when the card was opened it would show where I adhered the ribbon on the left hand side. Gem ribbon to the rescue.
I had cut the piece for inside the card too small as the tree is taller than the flower in the original file. Instead of cutting a larger piece or even using something else I decided to forget putting an extra piece inside. Instead I glued down the tree frame which was left over from cutting the front and then glued in the middle piece. For the star on top I cut out a small star and glued on the frame. Later on I'll stamp a sentiment inside where it won't show when the card is closed.
There you have it my pretty in pink Christmas card. I hope the person I send this to will love it. I may even make some more now that I have the file made up. I plan to be sending cards for the Caring Hearts Card Drive. Details about that drive can be found here:
