Celebrate the Season - Fun and easy things to do with ribbon!

Hey everyone, this is Kimberly and I am so excited that it is, once again, my turn to share another project with you!  Be sure to stop by my My Craft Spot, for more fun projects and vidoes!

I love Christmas and how it turns my thoughts towards things most important in life . . . family, Jesus Christ, serving others and being thankful for all I have.  I love the decorations, the snow, the beautiful music and the yummy foods made only this time of year.

For now, I am trying to get a head start on my stash of Christmas cards and gift tags! 


All of the sentiments on the card and tag are stamps from My Pink Stamper.  The cardstock is a mix from my stash, but mostly Crate Paper. The overall card measures 5 3/4 inches by 5 3/4 inches.  The red paper is a 5 1/2 square.  The green is 5 x 5 inches and the cream square is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4.


 The deer and trees are from Gypsy Wanderings.  I cut the deer at 3.08 inches and the trees at 3.43, 2.92 and 3.55.

I used Cranberry Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot for the ruffled border and for the bow.


I inked everything with Walnut and Tea Dye distress inks.


This tree was cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 3.55.  I cut it twice.  Once in brown and once in green.  Then I trimmed off the bottom of the green so I could layer it on top of the brown.
