Christmas card using my new stash.

I got a great little package of goodies from The Ribbon Girl, such a blast of colour when I opened the envelope! I was really happy with the service I got, from the hand written note on the invoice to the fast delivery time. Not to mention the great value on their products. I ordered grosgrain ribbon, bakers twine in red and aqua, red dew drops and satin ribbon. First of all, I am really impressed with the quality. I decided to make a little Christmas card and after a little inspiration from a friend, I came up with this card. The card blank is embossed with a Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I wrapped the bakers twine round a piece of red card a few times and stuck it down. The holly wreath is made by punching out little starburst shapes and placing them in a circle. I have had that little punch for years and could never think of much to do with it. Then I glued on the red dewdrops as holly berries. The "Joy" sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I really enjoyed making this card and am looking forward to using the rest of my new stash!
