52CCT - Stash ....

....  Good morning all!  It's been a bit quiet here - still recovering from a fabulous trip to Washington DC and my brain just hasn't got back into the groove!!!  Anyhow, it's time for our Stash challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Patricia would like us to use ribbon on our cards.  I have a huge selection of ribbon and really don't use it often enough!  Here's my card:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Yonder Star Background, Opera Tags Christmas, Alpine Christmas
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron, Real Red
Dies: Spellbinders/WMS - Opera Tags
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Cucumber Crush, Real Red; SU Ribbon - Real Red; Black/White Bakers Twine


I made a tag for my Christmas card.  I used a couple of the new in-colours from Stampin' Up! and paired them with bright red - a very festive combination.  I cut a mat layer of bright green card, and stamped a background pattern in mint green on the white card.  I stamped the tag in green, cut it out with the matching die and added a sentiment in red.  I layered the tag on red card, cut around to leave a thin red border and added a bold red ribbon.  I used dimensional tape to attach the tag to the card.  On the inside of the card I cut a mat layer of red card, stamped a Christmas greeting in green and finished with some mint green snowflakes.

The patchwork star background makes a great backdrop for your lovely tag. Gotta love the traditional red, green, and white color scheme! :)
