JustRite Holiday Cheer Christmas Card
There are only 175 days until Christmas! You probably groaned at that statement or said "We are not even halfway through summer yet!" Well, I was just trying to get you all in the spirit to read about my card. :)
You may wonder why I did a Christmas card for the JustRite challenge. Several reasons: (1) I have been making Christmas cards for a little while now and this one was next on my sketch list to make into a card, (2) JustRite just released their July stamps and they are all Christmas...woo-who! and (3) JustRite started a new challenge to use a doily and this card has it. It just all seemed to work out.
The background is JR Fragrant Garden stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in gold. It was distress inked in TH antique linen and peeled paint. The red card stock under the background stamp was distressed in TH fired brick. The ivory card base was distressed in antique linen, vintage photo and walnut stain. The doily die cut (from Couture Creations Alcyone Doily) was also distressed in antique linen, vintage photo and walnut stain. JR stamp set Holiday Cheer Ornaments (CL-03925) and Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornaments (S4-283) were used to make the ornament. Decorative Labels Twenty Two was die cut and the JR sentiment "Holiday Cheer" was applied. A white ribbon was distressed in red, a gold brad was applied as were the gold tinsel branches.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
