Christmas Card

Happy Thursday gals!!! It took a while to get these pictures up because my son had speech this morning so I wasn't able to get it done first thing this morning.

I have no idea what I am going to do for my Christmas cards this year. I haven't really spent a lot of time thinking about how I was going to make the cards or even what stamps I was going to use.

Since I figured I better get on the ball I sat down with some ideas to make a few cards. I love how this one turned out. I tell you, I think the main reason I bought PTI's silent night stamp set is because of this flourish and that is it. Not that I don't love anything else. Everything in this set is awesome.

I started by stamping the flourish in the bottom corner in versamark ink and embossed it with stardust EP. Next I scored 2 lines toward the top of the card with my scor-pal 1/2" apart. Then I pierced two lines of holes in between the score lines (I know they are crooked, I think I moved my mat while piercing).

The ribbon is from Target. It was in the bridal section and was on sale. Lastly I used some of my paper from QVC and used that to mat the sentiment (silent night). The red star is also from silent night and to add a little more I took self-adhesive pearls and put them on the bottom. I was looking for crystals but couldn't find any small ones. The ones I had were really way too big. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Have a great Thursday!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

I really like this one. I am a sucker for Christmas cards, although I admit I never send them out. I have a ton...just sitting in my card boxes...maybe one day...
