Special Delivery With RRR

Hi, everyone!  Today it's my turn to share a project for Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I thought I'd get a jump start on Christmas and create some gift-giving ideas to help inspire you to start on some of your Christmas gift-giving projects as well.  I created a card and a treat bag filled with candies to make a lovely gift set, and Really Reasonable Ribbon can help you as well.
My card was made using lots of great Carta Bella Christmas Delivery products.  I used their patterned papers, stickers, journalling cards, and ephemera pieces; but I also incorporated lots of other cute items. There's a cute white doily, a Melissa Frances rub-on (gifts), a berry branch, a Tim Holtz ephemera tag (Special Delivery), and all my great Really Reasonable Ribbon goodies including a bow I tied using their 3/8" Black and White Plaid Houndstooth Ribbon, Cherry Baker's Twine, and an adorable Ivory Sweetheart Blossom in the center of the ribbon.  I also added a black star stick pin to add an extra pop of color.
The gift bag is from Heidi Swapp, and I filled it with green mints.  The top of it is decorated with a white doily, some Tim Holtz ephemera, and again lots of great Really Reasonable Ribbon goodies including Lipstick Red Seam Binding, Ivory Seam Binding, Black Licorice Baker's Twine, Christmas Baker's Twine, and a Red Sweetheart Blossom.  All the Really Reasonable Ribbons work together so nicely to help showcase all your projects beautifully.  I just love how Really Reasonable Ribbon helps me make such gorgeous projects!
There are lots of great new Embellishments at Really Reasonable Ribbon as well, and lots of sweet little Mulberry Flowers to accent them nicely.  My cards always look so much sweeter once I've adorned them with some fabulous goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You can stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog every day to get lots of great inspiration and ideas, and there's always a FUN CHALLENGE taking place on the RRR Blog as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great week.  We look forward to seeing you soon over at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and we're always here to help inspire you and answer any questions you might have about the wonderful products they carry.  There's ALWAYS something exciting happening at Really Reasonable Ribbon!

I'm sharing my card here:
Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog - Week #433 - I flipped the sketch on its side and used a doily in the center rather than a rectangle.

Thanks for stopping by,
