Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.” As you can guess, our Blog Hop today is filled with projects that are inspired by beautiful paper and beautiful ribbons – how clever! We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

From the minute I heard this Blog Hop title, I have had that song in my head.  Except that is about all of the song I can remember.  So I am humming Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon!  Yikes.  So….with that in my head, I came up with a “Wrapped” card.  That song reminds me of a gift.  Here is my gift to you today.


Stampin' Up!, Takeout Treats, Peaceful Noel, Joyous Noel DSP, Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper, Merry Merlot , Copper, Jackie Beers

TMerry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon, 147818


This is really not a card for mailing, but I love how it turned out.  The focal points of the card are the ribbon and the tag.  Although the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP, and Glimmer Paper,  are fabulous.  The little tag is stamped with the sprig from the Peaceful Noel stamp set.  The sentiment ,”This Is For You!”, is from the Takeout Treats stamp set.  It is embossed with Copper embossing powder.  The reversible ribbon with Merry Merlot and Copper really ties in with the two papers and the embossed sentiment.
