A Little More Christmas


I am in love with this card. It was so easy to make and I love the way it looks. I started with a vintage cream base and then added a scarlet jewel panel that I stamped with Giga Guidelines in versamark. I stamped the mat stack on a die cut with scarlet jewel ink. I added a ribbon die cut stamped with my sentiment from fillable frames. I added some scarlet jewel buttons to finish things off.
I stamped the front of a cream linen envie to make a spot for the address.
I lined the envie with scarlet jewel in bloom paper. Oh how I love that envie liner die. Pure heaven! Thanks for stopping by today!
