The Miracle of Christmas

Happy Thursday, everyone! Today I have a Christmas card to share with you. I used two JustRite sets: Christmas Nested Sentiments and Christmas Nested Frames. Both are available at Stamper's Dream.


I gave texture to the BasicGrey Wassail patterned paper with my Cuttlebug and Polka Dots embossing folder. I colored the stamped frame with Copics, and I inked the edges of the cardstock and paper with Tea Dye Distress Ink. The bow is topped with a Cappuccino Button and Silver Metallic String.

Don't be afraid to add some bling or metallic string to a vintage-looking card. You wouldn't think they go together, but somehow the contrast just works! :)

That's all for now! I'm so glad you stopped by!

Have a fantastic day!
Christina
