Viva La City Merry Christmas
I'm hosting the Viva La Verve sketch this next week on Splitcoast Stampers. I'd love it if you came and joined along.
My card, (is it wrong to rotate your own sketch, lol) is using some paper that I absolutely love and puts me right in the mood for Christmas presents under the tree the old fashion way. I've combined the new release set, Holiday Greetings, with Borderline's presents in a row today. I created my own washi ($1 store medical) tape using acrylic paint (Old Fashion Linen, and Tree Moss Green) and the star stamps from the Holiday Greetings set. I added some layered texture under the sentiment banner with a border emboss with a honeycomb folder from Cuttlebug/Cricut and stitching. Some fiber wrapped and tied in a bow and then one of the sweet paper pieced trees with a present from Holiday Greetings popped up on the Ribbon Banner die. Lots of goodies on this card and I love every little piece. It's a warm fuzzy card for sure. :)
Stop over on Splitcoast Stampers with a project inspired my this weeks sketch! See ya soon!
