Christmas cards with ribbon scraps *Ribbons Unlimited Inc.*

Hello there friends. Today I’d like to share a super easy card design that can be mass produced for your holiday greetings. It’s also a great way to use up ribbon scraps. 

Gather your supplies. I will show you on a different blog post where all my ribbon scraps came from but for now, you can see all sorts of widths and lengths of ribbon in the mix. This design is also very useful to use up tools such as embossing folder, die and glitter glue. 

Create your card base from whatever cardstock you prefer. I made mine from white cardstock to measure 4 ¼ x 5 ½”. I then cut a 4 x 5 ¼” piece of white cardstock and ran them through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss dot embossing folder.

Next, I used a gold shimmer cardstock to cut my Christmas tree die from. I ran it through my die cut machine twice to make that all of the detail cuts were made. 

After that, I assembled the card. I picked out a pattern paper with red and green strips on it as a border and laid out how I want my ribbon scraps to go under the pattern paper strip. I then cut notches on each one and adhered to a ¾” strip of pattern paper. 

I first adhered my embossed background onto the card then my red strip with ribbon scraps under it; Followed by the die cut Christmas tree. To add some more texture, I filled the star top of the die with glitter glue. 

Here are some more close ups of the cards….

 I hope this inspired you to add some ribbon scraps to your next project. Thank you for stopping by.
