Still a master at procurement

Look at all this scrumptious ribbon! Lasting Memories had a special purchase event that started on Labor Day and I'm sure will last as long as supplies do (but you might check with the store). Next to A Muse ribbon, American Crafts ribbon is a favorite of mine. I love the colors, patterns, and quality of the ribbon AC offers. I went a little crazy but......

I used some of the ribbon!

I knew I had to get some of this lovely, elegant holiday ribbon and immediately knew what I wanted to create with it. This just might be my Christmas card for 2009. I usually try not to use bulky ribbon on cards I'm mailing so I'll probably use A Muse ribbon on any that I need to send but for those I can present the card to in person, I think this will work fabulously! The stag is one of my favorites of the Amuseapalooza release this year. I used the smallest of my Nestabilities Label 1 dies for the sentiment (from the clear set) and added a touch of color with the red micro twinkle dots. I added some Pink Paislee coconut glitter along the top of the snow but it just doesn't show up in pictures at all.

I'm working on putting together an elegant winter card class for next quarter's schedule at Stampin-In-The-Rain and I imagine this one will show up in that class.

I've got an A Muse Coffee Break card class coming up next Wed and my Fun With the Slice class coming soon after that. Hope to see you there!

This is very pretty. I have not even put ink on the stag stamp I own!

I wanna know more about that ribbon, though. One looks like it is scalloped. Show us more!
