Hello! It’s my turn to host at Words2CraftBy this month. Our words are taken from one of my favorite Christmas movies, “A Christmas Carol.”
“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” ─ Charles Dickens
You can make any Christmas-themed project for our challenge. I made a simple layered card:Sometimes you just need to make a quick and easy card and this was basically made from scraps. I started with my focal image, the Santa from the Tim Holtz “Letters to Santa” stamp set (love the vintage Santa images!). I stamped on paper with a little bit of texture, inked the edges with Vintage Photo DI, and colored the holly berries with Christmas Red Stickles. The layer below that was a scrap – I believe that’s Bo Bunny. The jingle bells border was embossed on gold metallic Kraft-Core (TH collection) with an Anna Griffin embossing folder/border, then sanded. I don’t know the name of the folder because I bought it at a scrapbook store garage sale. I used the full-sized folder on the red paper that’s peaking out underneath the other layers. Textured green cardstock was used for the card base.
My sentiment is from the TH “Crazy Talk” stamp set. I stamped, embossed my little tag with the jingle bells EF, inked with Vintage Photo DI and added clear Wink of Stella around the edges. My bow was scrap ribbon to which I added a jingle bell.
That’s it – easy peasy! Don’t forget to link up your Christmas project to our challenge for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the e-tailer of your choice. Thanks for stopping by!
