I bet you thought you went to the wrong blog, huh! No autumn colors – shocking, but true! You know, we Stampin’ Up! demonstrators claim that you don’t have to be creative to create! Well, really, it’s true! I copied this card almost exactly from the Holiday Mini! I thought it was gorgeous and only changed the ribbon because I didn’t have what they used (that is called improvising!) Anyhow, go to page 19 in the Holiday Mini and you’ll see this card. I did round the edges on the Merry Christmas, I believe they used Kraft cardstock, but you know, I had this piece of River Rock cardstock handy (yes I know you can’t get it anymore), and it was a scrap .. and begged to be used. Actually, I think it is perfect for this card!
Also, check out the Taffeta Ribbon! The Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon has this gorgeous white edge on it that is so elegant!! I love it!!!
