Well, for me it is getting to crunch time for getting my Christmas cards done so I am scaling down to mainly clean and simple designs now. This is one which was inspired by the paper pack colors from a set by Stampin' Up! which I had ordered earlier in the year. I decided to use those colors except for adding the green to make a simple design. I really like the look too. I had not done a lot with holly this year so I decided that would be my stamped design besides the sentiment.
I stamped the nice big sentiment from the Gina K. Designs Holly Jolly set with Gina K. Designs Kraft ink to match the kraft color in the striped background of the pattern paper. The nice holly leaves were also from a Gina K. Designs stamp set called Festive Foliage and were stamped with Gina K. Designs Grass Green. And instead of stamping holly berries I chose to take a hand held punch and make some berries with the red glitter card stock from Stampin' Up!. The last step was to add a ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Traditional Christmas Mix which was the October Ribbon Club Assortment.
I made several of this design. Some I added a ribbon to and some I made them without. I really liked both versions and these worked up really fast and quick once I had my papers cut and the design figured out.
Other supplies used were a Scor Pal, Scor Tape, Glue Dots and the Crafter's Companion Glue Pen. I cut my panels using my old guillotine cutter.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Mod Squad Challenge -Christmas and Ribbons
Crop Stop Linky Party #22-Anything Goes
My dear sweet husband got my baked goods to the sale as our roads were bad and he used the four wheel drive pick-up to take them in to town where the sale was held. It is only nine miles but even at that it took much longer due to the slippery and sometimes snow filled roads. I hope the sale goes well too!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
