Christmas Collectibles, Flower Frenzy Bigz L

Today marks the end of two phases in my life – Ramadan will be coming to an end either today or tomorrow (we have to look for the new moon tonight to be sure) and my monthly Creative Crew challenges. So, I am posting my last holiday card that I made for the Catalog Focus on “ribbons, twine, thread, etc.” Since I absolutely love the new in-color ribbons, I decided to use them for this vibrant holiday card, using the Apothecary Accents framelits and the Flower Frenzy Bigz die. This card uses a fun technique of laying down ribbon onto cardstock then cutting out a shape to lay over them. You can use any shape you desire but these shapes just spoke to me as being suitable for Ramadan. The ornament stamp and punch represent a “fanous” – Arabic for “light” or “lantern.” The new gold baker’s twine was used around the fanous by pulling out just the gold thread and tying it in a bow.
