Baby It's Cold Outside

Hello, friends of Really Reasonable Ribbon!  We're all SO glad that you've stopped by today.  I hope that this card I'm sharing today will get you pumped up for making Christmas cards, and that it will get you ALL to realize that you simply CAN'T live without getting yourself some gorgeous Lipstick Red Seam Binding to help you make all your Christmas cards beautiful!  This lovely shade of red is absolutely PERFECT for all your Christmas cards and projects.  It's truly a MUST-HAVE supply, and I hope I inspire you all to pick up a few yards for your Christmas crafting.
I started with some of my favorite Crate Paper (Bundled Up) patterned papers and embellishments (papers and flair buttons) to create the snowman, and added an October Afternoon (Silent Night) journalling card.  I added some sweet little sequins to act like snowflakes falling and catching the light.  Then.....the best part of ANY card - the BOW!  I ran a length of the AWESOME and super useful Lipstick Red Seam Binding across the card, and tied a double bow with it as well.  I just love how the red seam binding brings in a Christmas feel even when you use other colors on your card.  It's just so festive for the Christmas season, and that's why I consider it a true "MUST-HAVE" for every crafter during the holidays.

It's a great time to treat yourself, and this Lipstick Red Seam Binding is a trim that you will find yourself going to over and over again as you create your Christmas cards and projects.  I promise that you will love it as much as I do.  It's just the sweetest!

This card was completely inspired by a VERY similar card originally created by the talented Melissa Phillips of Lily Bean Paperie.  This isn't the first time one of her amazing cards has inspired me.  While I realize that there's nothing wrong with being inspired by someone, and "lifting" their ideas; I do think it's completely wrong to not give the original artist full credit for the original work.  Thanks, Melissa, for inspiring me once again.

Really Reasonable Ribbon has so many wonderful ribbons, laces, twines and trims as well as flowers, leaves, and SO much more.  Check out all the wonderful items available in their sweet ribbon shop, and treat yourself today.  But, please don't miss out on your chance to grab some of this awesome Lipstick Red Seam Binding.  Happy ribbon crafting!

  4. Another cutie, Karen, but I must admit I am appreciating the warmer temperatures that are coming here - albeit reluctantly at the moment, with a polar blast having just assaulted us!
