Using up ribbon

Being in an enforced period of no crafting due to a recent shoulder operation, I am uploading bits and bobs here gradually.  I used up every single Christmas card from my stockpile last year, so hate being under pressure at the last minute, and prefer to make them as and when I feel it!

I am currently ALL about using the stash,baby, so this card was designed around the ribbon ... I thought it was reminiscent of abstract presents so went with the colour scheme.  I accessorised with copper peeloffs, a copper snowflake cut on the Quickutz, and some lovely sequins!  Black and copper have always done it for me.  Glue lines and weeny dots make sticking the sequins with a breeze. I LOVE that "A Rhonna Christmas" Stampology bird stamp by Autumn Leaves.  Haven't maximised it enough to date! 


  1. Love the title of your blog Ali. Does it mean anything ? Glad you were able to put your time recuperating to good use.

  2. That is a great card, Ali! Very stylish and nice being not obvious Christmas colours.
