since the ribbon girl challenge this month was white, I decided to go for a simple design, layering different textures and sparkles for a sophisticated look. I spread texture paste over a snowflake stencil, allowed it to dry then die cut the card into a shape. I cut further layers of pearl and white card using the smaller dies in the same shape. I stamped the sentiment onto the top layer. the embossed piece was then stuck onto a further sheet of pearl paper. I tucked the ribbon under the backing matt, before sticking onto the card to give a professional, clean finish. the other layers were then added over the ribbon using foam pads to add further dimension. I finished off the design with some adhesive gems in the corners for that extra Christmas sparkle.
