Christmas Card Workshop 2008 - Card No. 3

This card was my swap for the Founder's Circle Trip and I received many compliments on it. I think red and white together looks so crisp! An easy card, too! For the bow, you wrap the 5-1/2" piece around the Real Red card stock and tape it in place. Make the 6" piece into a circle and hold it together at the ends with Sticky Strip. Then take the 1-1/2" piece and wrap it around the center of the 6" piece, adhering it in the back to the Sticky Strip already in place. Then I attached the bow with another piece of Sticky Strip to the 5-1/2" piece! The recipe is below. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!
Paper: Whisper White - 8-1/2 X 5-1/2; Real Red - 4-5/8 X 3-1/8; Whisper White - 4-1/2 X 3
Stamps: Take Three
Inks: Real Red Marker; Old Olive Marker
Miscellaneous: Stampin' Dimensionals; Stamp-a-ma-jig (optional, but highly recommended!); Real Red Wide Grosgrain Ribbon in three different lengths to make the bow: 6" long, 5-1/2" long, and 1-1/2" long; Sticky Strip (for holding the bow in place)
