Fantabulous Cricut Ch. 90 Rolling in Ribbon

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! Thanks for stopping by today!

It is time for another fun challenge at Fantabulous Cricut! This week we are Rolling in Ribbon! We are asked to use ribbon somewhere on the project plus the Cricut cut.

Cricut Cartridges:
Joys of the Season -- The pretty double-sided paper is from K&Company Yuletide (last years's paper pad). I chose the Ribbon Frame card feature on page 65 and using Cricut Craft Room the paper was cut at 5 1/2" using the relative feature. The cut size folds to be a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.
The ribbon frame was cut in green and the layer image was cut in red at 3" to fit the front cutout of the card. I hand cut the beige oval to fit the opening and it was embossed with Cuttlebug Allergo folder. The card opening is backed with a piece of vellum.
Page 77- Peace was cut at .75" using the main image from a gold shimmer paper and the shadow from red paper.
Christmas/Noel - Candle and candle holder. Oops, I failed to record the size! Candle is pop-dotted on the embossed mat
I made the bow from The Paper Studio Glitter Velvet Red Ribbon. It is pop-dotted on the card. Christmas Red Stickles was used for the holly berries.

Hope your enjoy my card and are inspired to join our challenge this week. Be sure to visit Fantabulous Cricut to see all the great projects by the design team. Remember you must include ribbon and a Cricut cut on your project. We look forward to seeing your pretty projects!
