Have you been over to the Jingle Belles blog yet? If you want a great place to go to get inspiration to get you Christmas cards done then that is the place for you! They put up a challenge every week and you get one chance for every card made during the month to win prizes! Isn't that awesome! So, you get inspiration, motivation, less stress at Christmas by having your cards done, and the chance to win prizes. I don't see how you could lose!
This week the challenge is to make a card with print on it. You could use the print as a background or an accent. You could also use a sentiment and make that the main focus of your card. Here is what I made:
I used a page from a Christmas magazine as the background print. I also distressed the cardstock behind the print a little bit. Then I added some ribbon and the sentiment, which came from the Ippity set "Season of Joy". The tag stamp around the sentiment came from the same set. The bird came from another Ippity set, "Sing A New Song". (These stamp sets can be ordered from my Ippity Sales Blog.) I embossed all the stamping with Martha Stewart embossing powder and heat gun.
Thank you for visiting my blog! I will have another Christmas card to share with you on Friday for the Friends With Flair blog hop. Maybe I will have a couple of cards...we'll see!
