After a very mild fall in my part of the country, winter really came roaring in this weekend. I definitely feel in the mood to show off some of the Christmas themed cards I've been working on.
I colored up the Holly Jingle Bells stamp from DRS Designs, die cut it and matted it using my oval dies. I added a dab of glitter glue to the berries and set it aside to dry while I began on stamping my background papers. I always find it so satisfying to make custom, perfectly matched papers for a special project.
For the base background I used Easy Dot Background, stamping in dark red and green ink and then stamping on top of that using the Splatter Background in a yellow. I then took those same ink colors and made a piece of plaid using the Woven Plaid Background stamp and added a punched border to it.
I wrapped my background paper with a piece of matching ribbon, adding a button from my neglected button stash. I then topped it with the plaid piece and adhered the image with dimensional tape.
I chose the new Holly Days Christmas Greeting and added that at an angle to finish off the card.
Thanks so much for looking!
