Xmas ....

I created this card sometime ago & have never gotten around to posting it.  I did get the idea from the very talented Holly Krautkremer  a long time ago.  I didn't save the card but stored it in my head for all this time.  I don't even know if Holly created it for this Christmas or for last Christmas.  I am not even sure if it is exact copy, but I think it is close enough.  I only hope I have done it justice Holly!

Measurements -
Base Card - Rich Razzleberry - 8 1/4" x 5 7/8" or 21cm x 15cm - scored & folde in half landscape
Layer 1 - Old Olive - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14,5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Rich Razzleberry - 3" x 3 3/8" or 7.5cm x 8.5cm
Layer 3 - Whisper White - 2 7/8" x 3 1/4" or 7cm x 8cm

I run the piece of Old Olive through the Bigshot using the Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder.  I adhered a piece of Satin Ribbon off-centre across the card & tied a double bow tie to the RHS.

I stamped the piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the small snow flake from Short & Sweet Stamp Set using both Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive Inks.  I stamped 3 images onto scraps of Whisper White Cardstock, 2 in Old Olive & 1 in Rich Razzleberry.  I cut these images & adhered over the top of Rich Razzleberry Ribbon using SU Dimensionals.  The ribbon had been adhered to the Whisper White Cardstock.  I applied 3 Basic Pearls to the top of the images. 
I adhered the Whisper White piece to the piece of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock & then adhered to the Old Olive using SU Dimensionals.  I adhered 3 Basic Pearls to the card.

A very quick, but very elegant Xmas card.
