Christmas Blessings

>> Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Hi Everyone,

I knew I wanted to do something different than the usual red and green color combo when I saw this Bubble Candle Oval stamp arrive at my door, and I ended up coloring it in with funky purples and greens. I always love a little something unexpected this time of year, and this would surely be a surprise in my mailbox, among all the typical holiday cards :)

I really brought out the background stamps for this one, using Retro Starburst on the base, Woven Plaid and 4 in 1 Snowflake and Argyle and Argyle Diamond for the two papers.  It's so satisfying to create matching papers from scratch.



I also hand dyed a bit of seam binding and tied it in a bow, and added Stickles and gems for some bling.  Whew, thank goodness there was just enough room left to add the 1 Line Christmas Blessings greeting along the bottom...lol!

 I just want to remind you that our Inspired by Religion challenge is still going on.  Link up your card here, for your chance to win!

Thanks for dropping by,

Karin

I LOVE these colors!! A nice change from the traditional red and green. I can't believe you dyed your own ribbon - you go girl!!
