Ho Ho Ho! Christmas Card Number Two

Good morning all.  Well it was when I first started to write!!!!  But I have since been interrupted by a very pleasant and leisurely continental breakfast with our friends who are visiting from Gibraltar.  I had some toasted garlic bread with butter and Serrano ham and it was a tasty change from my usual cereal!  So much chatter and a delicious breakfast later I should now say Good Afternoon ;-)

Today I am sharing another Christmas tutorial.  This card looks elegant and can be made in other combinations of patterned papers and ribbons.  I love the black and cream together with the small splash of colour introduced by the ribbon.

I have tried to ensure that the first lot of Christmas inspiration I am sharing could be made by any crafter with the stash they have in their possession.  Most folk I know own card, patterned papers and ribbon.  Just add a stamped or printed greeting and a snowflake embellishment and ........Voila!

I really love the ribbon detail of this card and it could be used on other cards for other occasions.  For example you could have a pearl cream embossed card base with all cream ribbons and suddenly it becomes suitable for a wedding and I am sure you will find it useful and it is very pretty as you can see in more detail here.

So last but not least here is video number two in my Christmas Inspiration series.  I have added Christmas music to get you in the mood.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend......we are popping out to have coffee and cake this afternoon in a lovely little cafe and gift shop.  I may have to treat myself to a Christmas ornament or two!!!  Watch this space ;-)   Shhhhhhh don't tell Ivan ;-)

Thank you for popping by X
