Holiday Card #4

Good Morning, Stampers!

As promised, here is the final card from my Holiday Card class. I kept the card simple so that it wouldn't take away from the ribbon frame. The Old Olive is embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots folder (117335 - $7.95). I love the simple & clean christmas tree from the new stamp set Contempo Christmas (w118734 - $15.95) (c120594 - $11.95) & the Dazzling Diamonds glitter (102023 - $4.50) is just SO SPARKLY!!

How to make the ribbon frame:

1. Cut a slit from the corner of your cardstock towards the center. The slit needs to be the length of your ribbon. Do this on all four corners.

2. Take a piece of your ribbon about 1" longer than the side of the cardstock. Tie a knot in the center. Feed the ends thru both sides of the slit. Once you have all for pieces thru, you can adhere tape on the back side to secure. It is a bit bulky so I used the red sticky strip to secure to the card....

Happy Stampin'!!
