We had a team meeting on Monday, and we all made a Chrissy card using the Spotlight on Christmas set. I used the fabulous FREE ribbon on this card, and a bit of a different Christmas colour combo:
and then to show just how versatile this set is, and also because I needed to make a few baby cards, and I wanted to use some of the yummy FREE So Saffron ribbon, I came up with this one:
I made a Pink Pirouette version too, which has been sent off already. I made the star all glittery with 2-way glue and dazzling Diamonds, and then added a layer of Crystal Effects, which gives it a glossy, glittery effect. Using patterned paper made this card super quick and easy.
I'm on a "perfect knot" tying mission this month...if you come along to my classes during October I will show you how to tie a perfect, flat knot (whether you like it or not LOL)
Don't forget: Only a few days left to get your FREE ribbon! Email me with an order for $100, and you'll receive a ribbon bundle absolutely free.

Thanks for the beautiful card - sorry I couldn't make another team meeting. It's been crazy here as we're trying to buy land.
LOVE the cards Marelle. Very clever use of that set.ReplyDelete
