The Words Have It


I am playing with Christmas cards again.  I pulled out some Heartfelt Creations leftover papers from last year's Christmas Collection and created this card featuring a verse from HC Sweet Memories Set.  I stamped the sentiment with SU Brocade Blue ink on some of the Pattern Paper and cut with Nesties Circle Die and matted with a circle of Blue CS same as the Blue Card Base.  Before adding the verse,  I stamped the HC Pinecones in the lower right corner of the Pattern Paper layer with DI Brushed Corduroy ink and colored with brown and green pencils.  I also highlighted some of the background pattern paper with the pencils.  The Blue card base was layered with a mat of Leather CS and then with the rest of card.

This card has a lovely soft feel to it. Like your use of the circle die to frame the sentiment like a bauble.
Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM this week. :)
