My eye is always drawn to clean, graphic design, so it isn't any surprise that I used the Chevron Striped Twill to make a few holiday cards.
My biggest challenge was deciding which colors to use, but I was able to narrow it down to three: red, turquoise and celery (what, you thought I was just going to pick one?).
I wanted to create cards that looked like they were gift wrapped packages, with the sentiment on a tag. Just like the packages under our tree, each ribbon is tied a different way.
The red Chevron Striped Twill is folded back on itself to form a ruffle.
The celery Chevron Striped Twill runs along the top and right side of the package, with a bow added where the ribbon intersects.
The turquoise Chevron Striped Twill also runs along the top and right side of the package and is knotted off where the ribbon intersects.
This card is also being linked to the CAS-uals Fridays Challenge to feature knots.
CFC81: Create a Clean And Simple project that features a knot or knots.
Each packages is finished with a Papertrey Ink sentiment and tied to the ribbon using Really Reasonable Ribbon's solid color Baker's Twine, along with a few jingle bells.
The designer papers are from Studio Calico's Wonderland collection.
Really Reasonable Ribbon has a terrific sale going on right now through until December 11th. Check out the details here and fill your shopping cart!
