  • This card is a 6×6 from white card stock.  Each layer is ¼” smaller alternating between dark red and white.  The final layer being embossed with Spellbinders Holidays Magic Embossing folder trimmed to 5×5.
  • The sentiment from Stampendous Christmas Wishes and is stamped with red ink. It is matted with dark red card stock.

Making the flower using 5/8” Sheer Ruffled Edge Ribbon (350-58-01):

  • Wrap ribbon into 6, continuous loops that are 2 ½” wide.
  • Tightly tie center with string.
  • Cut loops just before the folds.
  • You will have shorter pieces in front and longer in the back.
  • Use heat tool on low heat.
  • Use clip in the center to hold down.
  • Use small tweezers to separate each strand of ribbon twisting as you are heating.
  • Add larger ribbon and leaves.

Happy Holiday’s, Rhea
