Open the door to Christmas....

Hi Crafter's
Here is a little classic card for you. I really like clean and simple looking cards.


The wreath on this card was made with ribbon and the greeting is hand written.
Here is a link of a tutorial  by Sue Wilson.
To make my wreath I used  1.5 mtr  of  3mm ribbon. I worked the ribbon until it was about 11cm.

The only tools used in making this was my trusty Fiskars trimmer, Hougie embossing board and a black fine liner pen.

Thank you for visiting I hope you enjoyed your visit. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. I do love reading your comments.  See you again soon.

Hi Alice,

I don't know where you live. The Hougie board is sold here in the UK at around £24.99 Its similar to the score pal or the Marther Stewart scoreboard they will do the job as well.
