Hello! Happy Hoppin! This week is "blues" week at
Coloring Down the Lines!!!
Although I went rogue! It's a blue Christmas here!!!
Welcome to the hoppers from Helen's blog. Be sure to head on over to
Lizzy's blog after this one! Then keep going!!
Here's my creation this week!:
Here's the Inspiration Photo:
And of course the Stampin' Up! colors:
These colors definitely do not say Christmas to me, but I really wanted to make a Christmas card! lol No, not pushing the season! Just wanted to play with some of my goodies!!! I guess it's never too early to plan Christmas cards!
So it's a pretty card. Didn't exactly turn out the way I planned, but I still like it! I've been dying to use my Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack! It's so pretty!!! But it's vellum! Here I embossed with the lovely
Softly Falling Embossing Folder! I love how the vellum looks embossed! Very distressed like! But I wanted a background under it, so I pulled out my trusty Lovely as a Tree stamp set & stamped away. Problem is it's hard to see here! I wanted it to "pop" a bit more! Not dark enough I guess! Look closely though. It's there!
The "joy" sentiment is from Your Presents! I have used this particular stamp set often!!! I love the simplicity of the font-simple yet elegant without being too fancy!!
So hope you like my first real Christmas card of the season! Maybe more to follow! lol
