Festive Friday 4-22

Good Morning and welcome to another Festive Fridays.

If you are new to us, sit back, grab a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy some wonderful Christmas Cards. Yes, I did say Christmas. Festive Fridays will be every other Friday with samples of Christmas cards. This way, you can be making your cards all year long and you will avoid the mad rush when you could be enjoying the Christmas Season. You should have just come from Debbie. If you stumbled upon this post you can go back to Terri and start at the beginning. I also have a complete list of the Festive Friday bloghop participants on my left sidebar so you won't get lost.

This week's card is a cricut less card.  It's a standard 5.5 by 4.25 card base and I punched the bottom of the card with my EK border punch. 

The base is layered with a green mulberry paper and the ribbon is so sheer you can almost not see it on the card.  I then used my Emagination flower punch and punched 2 red and 1 green flower.  I layered sheer ribbon over the flowers and trimmed around them and embellished with some pearls beads.  The sentiment is a paper punchout that came in a paperpack with some Christmas papers.

I also layered the mulberry paper inside the bottom of the card so that the border showed up more. 

Super simple card, but elegant.  Let me know what you think of it...and now onto your next stop Angela



  1. Great Card and Great idea. I always look for little projects to do when vacationing without having to bring my entire collections of supplies with me and sometimes I cant think of anything. I think I will take your advice and make my Christmas cards. I think supplies for that will fit in one carry case. Thanks for the tip. Oh, I'm a new follower and will be back to see more of your posts. I'd like to invite you over to my blog to have a look around. I always welcome new followers.
