I'm trying to get in the mood to make Christmas cards so I decided to use the sketch to get at least one done. I used the ODBD sets Blessed Christmas (and matching die) and Holly Tag. The papers are from one of my favorite set of Christmas papers, The Scrap Cake's Cozy Xmas. I love the slightly non-traditional colors and the lovely Christmas images used. I stamped the poinsettia image on white cardstock using Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with Copics and then die cut it using the matching die. The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock with dark red ink and then inked the edges with Old Paper ink. A larger plain white circle was die cut and the edges inked with Old Paper, as well, and the poinsettia image was mounted using foam dimensionals. Both circles were matted with dark red cardstock. The strip along with side was edged with some lovely Venise lace from the Funkie Junkie and then trimmed with some red twine, also from the Funkie Junkie. Because I used items from the Funkie Junkie I'm going to pop this card into the Sunday Share at Frilly & Funkie.
