Merry Christmas card

Happy Sunday to you all!

Just a short blog entry to share another Christmas card.  This card was too easy to make and I totally love the colors.  The colors were decided by the IBSIC #67 color challenge: use white, green and baby blue.

The JustRite Lace Oval Frame background stamp was stamped and heat embossed in white.  Tim Holtz distress markers in Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass were applied in the areas shown.  Spellbinders Opulent Ovals die cut the lovely oval in the center.  JustRite Christmas Vintage Labels One supplied the sentiment.  The green ribbon (my favorite!) was wrapped around the card and then was used for the bow.  Sad to say, this was the last of the ribbon on the spool.  I used this ribbon a lot and I must go back to get another spool or two!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Don't forget to check in tomorrow to see the new challenge for Craftin Desert Divas!

  1. Just BEAUTIFUL and such a great idea. The stick pin and bauble in the bow just add so much. You stamped first and then embossed...sometimes a bit slow. Thank you for sharing this amazing artwork with us.
