A couple of years ago I purchased some linen ribbon with the intent to use the cute Santas on the ribbon for Christmas cards. I finally got around to doing it!
The first card is very CAS and took only a couple of minutes to make! Once cut, 2 or 3 threads were pulled off both top and bottom to create a fringe border. The fringe was then colored with a Copic marker to match the stitching on the edge. After taping the ribbon onto the cardstock, the wire which came as part of the ribbon was pulled out of the sides.
The second card has a few layers of cardstock. Designer paper was also used along with a brad on the end of Santa’s hat. The fringe has not been colored on this card.
The wire was again removed after the ribbon was adhered to the cardstock. Santa’s beard was cut out from a second Santa and used to add a little more dimension and fun.
This last card was made using one of the images cut from a printed satin ribbon.
So fun, quick and easy!
