Focus on Paper

Hello Everyone!

I'm here bright and early to post this morning, since I didn't get a chance to share anything yesterday. As you may realize by now, I am definitely focused on Christmas cards. I'm also not doing any challenges at the moment and probably won't again until after I get all my Christmas cards done. I'm sure that many of you are aware and have seen the holiday card series that Kristina Werner has been doing on her blog. Well, I decided to use a few of her cards from that series as inspiration for some of my own. The card I shared yesterday was one example; and here is another one. I was inspired by the fact that Kristina used pattern paper on this card as her focal image rather than stamping. I pulled out my Merrymint collection of American Crafts paper and decided to used the fun neighborhood scenic piece. I stamped the letters from SU's Jumbo Outline Alphabet set on Burgundy paper and then glued them to a small piece of Baja Breeze. I hand wrote "to the world", which isn't as pretty as Kristina's; but then again I don't know anyone who writes as pretty as she does. Finally I added two simple buttons and the card was done.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
