My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

The Joy of Ribbons!

THE FANTABULOUS CRICUT CHALLENGE for this week is to use ribbon!
This is my contribution!  The card is from the Cricut Cartridge "Joys of the Season".  The front is covered in scraps of ribbon that are lined horizontally on paper and attached to the inside front of the card.
This is the card and the insert.  I run one of the white ornament shapes through a Xyron and then centered the ribbon to form the front of the card.
Then the extra pieces of ribbon where cut away.
The ribbon piece was glued to the inside of the card front.  A round piece was punched for the inside of the card.  The edges were blinged out with gold Stickles.
Inside of card.  A little holly embellishment and a sentiment finishes out the inside.  The white surface can be used to add notes.  A half circle could be added to the inside front cover and a gift card slid into the pocket!
After the season, the card front could be used as a tree ornament!
I keep ribbon scraps!  Now I have a wonderful use for these little beauties!
I am looking forward to Valentines Day to create more of these Ribbon Cards!

Have a wonderful day!  Thank you for visiting my blog!
