December Blog Hop Christmas Thank You Card

Welcome.  I am Nancy and it is time for the December Blog HopYou should be coming to my blog from Bonnie.   Wasn't her card just beautiful. 
I wanted to share a Thank You card that I made ahead of time to give around Christmas.  Thank You cards are not only for gifts received by others, but people who are special to you that you want to thank again around Christmas time. 

 I used the gorgeous Blue Multi Ovals on White Grosgrain ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and added 3mm size pearls.  Behind the ribbon is the Sue Wilson-Scandinavian border.  I think the die and ribbon goes well together on this card.  I used a Sue Wilson-Snowflake Lattice embossing folder for the blue metallic paper.

Behind the poinsettia, I added the white netting on the back and used the Zutter Bow-It-All V.2 to make the bow.  I find myself using the white netting often on my cards and projects since it gives a delicate appearance.  I added sparkling snowflake glitter on the Sue Wilson-Delicate Fern die that was cut with vellum.  I make my own angel pins for my cards to stick behind the bows and flowers.

Dies used are Creative Expression-Sue Wilson and Spellbinders from Scrapy
