Christmas card time!

 
 





It is that time of year to get the ball rolling on Christmas cards...and what better way than to start with some sumptuous RRR ribbons, paper, and a couple of kraft bases. I love the natural look of kraft and it goes with every color.  I really love to fuss up  my envelopes especially this time of year!  This project makes a pretty Christmas greeting and a gift all in one!   I used a vintage crochet angel for my main image on my tag and  gussied it up more with some washi tape, wood heart painted and distressed from etsy, some yummy kiwi fruit buttons, and few other little items.  I topped my tag off with May Art 1/8 diagonal stripe ribbon in red and some lipstick red seam binding.  The envelope has more of the seam binding along with bakers twine in peppermint and some lovely white crochet lace.
      From there more buttons, and paper diecuts and I was done.   A lot better than a hallmark card I think!  Enjoy!  cherry
