Elegant Ribbon and Ornament Christmas Card

Good morning! I hope you get some time to stamp and work on your Christmas projects this holiday weekend. And speaking of Christmas projects, from now until Christmas Day, I’ll be posting a variety of Christmas projects I’ve created over the last few months. Everything from hand-stamped “special” cards, to quick and easy Hybrid MDS Cards; from small decorated treats to elegant tags and matching gift wrap; from MDS created gifts to MDS printed cards. Keep checking back to get ideas for your crafting projects.

Today’s card was inspired by a Halloween card I saw on Mary Brown’s blog. I love the simple elegance of the card with that wide striped ribbon. I changed it to a Christmas card by using some retired Riding Hood Red striped ribbon and the ornament stamp from Delightful Decorations. I kept the elegant feel by using all neutrals with that pop of Riding Hood Red. The rest of the card is Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla. And don’t forget that final touch with the Basic Pearl.  This qualifies for the PPA121 "Pearls" challenge at Pals Paper Arts.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
