Have A Very Merry Christmas


Another Christmas card for my stash.  I love making Christmas cards.
For my card I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches 104 and the color challenge from Merry Monday #75 challenge.

My card base and image panels are SU Very Vanilla CS, Early Espresso CS, Deck the Halls DSP (retired) and MFT Electric Red CS. I stamped the sentiment from Verve's Peace on Earth in MFT Electric Red ink. The banners are cut with MFT Fishtail Flags Stax and Fishtail Flags Layers Stax. The two ornaments from SU Tags til Christmas and Contempo Christmas are stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder and punched with the SU Ornament punch. I added some gold twine to hang my ornaments. The banner is stamped with SU Woodgrain background stamp and Sahara Sand ink to add a little detail. I paper-pierced around the edges of the sentiment panel.  The banner and ornaments are mounted with foam tape.

I am also linking my card to Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything Christmas and Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge 143 - stamp, stamp, stamp
Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
