12 Cards of Christmas - Card 5

If you're ever having trouble coming up with a colour combination, try going to a piece of your favourite DSP. In this case, I went to the US Holiday Mini for my colour combination! I would never have thought of putting Real Red, Baja Breeze, Garden Green and Blushing Bride together, but I love the result.

And here's a TIP: to secure a knot of ribbon in place, attach your ribbon to the card first with a brad, and then simply tie your knot (a single one will do) over the top of the brad. Voila - a perfect knot that will never fall off! You can tie bows in place in a similar way. No adhesive required (and you can use up brads in ugly colours too ;o)


  1. Yes, a beautiful colour combination...and one that wouldn't normally come to mind. I'm loving the 12 Cards of Christmas. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for the brad tip Marelle! Love that Candy Cane Christmas combo, and I love this set used for cards as well as gift tags.
