Red & Rustic Christmas

 I was so happy to see the Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World.  I had entered into the May Arts Deck the Halls with Burlap Monthly challenge.  They send you a few yards of ribbon and you have to create a project using them.  While the beautiful ribbon works perfectly with the lovely Moxie Fab trigger.

I started with creating banners using the lovely red stripes.  I sponged the edges after I cut them to add a little more fraying and distressing. The background is stamped using Hero Arts Old French Writing.  Distressed with a brown dye ink. Placed on a kraft card base.  The flowers were a pretty color but I wanted the red so I glimmer misted them with a nice red color. I created faux leaves with the burlap ribbon and tied multiple bows using the green and natural twine. I finished off the card with mini banners with the Christmas sentiment.

Here is the inspiration photo:
And the beautiful ribbon I started with:
Hope you are having a wonderful Friday!

  8. This is a really beautiful unusual Christmas card. I really love that old French writing and the distressed look. The banners are really effective and together with the other elements create a beautiful garland.
