This month’s theme for the ICS Blog Hop is Knotty Ways with Ribbon for Christmas, highlighting the wonderful Christmas products and ribbons by Stampin’ Up! While I didn’t actually tie my ribbon in knots, I hope you’ll like what I came up with.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Pear Pizzazz CS cut to a triangle 3″ wide and 4-3/4″ tall (see diagram, cut away yellow areas)
  • diagram for triangle - Make this ribbon tree card using the new Carols of Christmas bundle and Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Stamped with the Carols of Christmas stamp set:

  • ornaments and flowers in Powder Pink ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • sentiment in Pear Pizzazz ink onto the inside of the card base

Die cut using the Card Front Builder Thinlits:

  • the stamped ornaments, flowers, and leaves

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • Pear Pizzazz CS with the smallest circle die

Assembled the card:

  • applied Fast Fuse adhesive to one side of the Pear Pizzazz CS triangle
  • starting at the bottom of the triangle, stuck ribbon to the triangle, going back and forth across it, working my way up
  • Make this ribbon tree card using the new Carols of Christmas bundle and Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy
  • adhered the ends of the ribbon to the back of the triangle with Fast Fuse

  • stuck flowers to the circle to cover it

  • adhered the flower tree topper to the top of the ribbon tree with Fast Fuse

  • double leaves glued around the pink flower topper
  • single leaves glued amongst the pink flowers
  • pearls applied to centers of flowers
  • ornaments adhered to the tree with Mini Glue Dots
  • exposed area of the front of the card base covered with Clear Wink of Stella

  • NOTE: I suggest using Shimmery White CS as the card base – then you don’t have to use the Wink of Stella! I think I applied a bit too much Wink of Stella to this card. It looks a bit uneven, and even muddy, when the light hits it just right (or just wrong?)
