I absolutely love this new 3/4 inch Polka dot ribbon. It's stitched on each edge, adding a little extra something. The nice thing about Stampin' Up's DSP is that it's double sided, therefore, when you open the flap of this card, it's also pretty, which is how I incorporated the Chocolate Chip color. I think this card lends a good spot to include a nice family photo. Might as well use all available space in your cards - who needs white space???I used the Lots of Labels die to back the inside sentiment. I tried to use the Old Olive color from the outside of the flap, but it just didn't look right, so I stuck with Choc. Chip. Seemed to flow better that way. The inside sentiment holds another importance - it covers up the joint of the ribbon.
This was really quite simple to create - and I'd be more than happy to show you how - book a workshop with me, we can concentrate on Christmas cards if that floats your boat. And don't be surprised this layout changed up a bit for a non-Christmas card. I'm thinking that using the new Circle Circus set would be super cute - and quite trendy too.
I'll be back later with a winner for my blog candy! Stay tuned people!
