a little more Christmas

Do you like using the traditional red and green for your holiday projects or do you like to switch things up now and then? I love both. Today’s card uses a fun holiday color scheme of pink, cream and red with green accents. It still says holidays with those sweet snowflakes on the pattern. Inspired by the paper and the Christmas carol themed stickers, this holiday card has a musical theme.

A Merry Little Christmas

Quick Tip: Highlight patterned paper elements with rhinestones to make them pop.

By adding a little ink, lace and distress crackle paint, this card takes on a shabby chic look.

Supplies: cardstock by Bazzill, patterned paper and stickers by October Afternoon, lace by Prima, chipboard by Maya Road(i think), twine, rhinestones by Zva Creative, Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint by Ranger

Now I need to get busy! I’m off to deliver some holiday goodies to the school and then put on my Christmas Carols and start baking. I’m having a surprise birthday party tonight and we’re celebrating the first of our Christmases tomorrow. Can’t wait!

Have a wonderful festive weekend!
